Nice cladding, but the shape is easily the most boring of the four WTC buildings.

It's supposed to be minimalist. The Japanese architect Maki followed old Japanese design ideas that base its minimalist forms. In fact, its quiet serenity makes it beautiful, more so than a flashier gaudy tower would be.

A good render, but definitely nowhere near as good as the real thing.

WTC 4 was "opened" for news media last November. The tower is clearly still under construction 4 months after "opening" date.

The street next to WTC4 is also open\closed. You can look and take pictures but police cars park there are making sure nobody walks on it.

Trees are open.

Awesome photos! We really needed some new close-up base shots.

Their definition of open means when the Tenant can start moving in. Construction is still ongoing and this won't be finished until Summer or Fall 2014.

That ceremony only took place because the mayor was leaving power.

4WTC actually looks quite tall with 1WTC cropped out of the photo.

It's easy to forget that it is almost a supertall. Especially in the first picture of Dexter's post at the top of this page

What I also like is that 4WTC will be a part of the rarely mentioned new skyscraper canyon that will be formed by 2,3 and 4 WTC, and 1LP/Millenium Hilton/22 Cortlandt. Amazing.
