Was down by the site and have to say the double bollards don't look too bad but they should have just extended the sidewalk more if they were this concerned. It's just great to finally be able to use these areas of the site again. Oh well I'm sure one day the second row will be removed, when the entire complex has been opened for a good amount of time and the paranoia is mostly faded from the NYPD. Hopefully.

I have a question for those involved in the process.. The construction of the 4 WTC is almost finished, so what is keeping them from opening the stores, now that the Cortlandt way is open to the public?

Opening the retail space would be beneficial to the whole site because it would bring more life to the area, and therefore would attract more the tenants-to-be.

I am asking this because I think it probably has something to do with the fact that the Oculus won't open this year. But if that's the only reason, it's very sad. The retail space (not including the below-grade level, of course) of 4 WTC has few or nothing to do with the Oculus, only the fact that they are all owned by Westfield. They could start recovering some of the money if they start having retail tenants..

Retail will open at-grade once the tenants finish building their stores, most likely Q1 next year. I still haven't got word if retail will open in the corridors opening at B2 later this year for access to PATH Hall.

I will keep you all informed once I get new info.

Has anyone else realized that 4WTC is just the old 7WTC stacked on top of the new 7WTC?

I remember commenting earlier that the top bit reminded me of the old 7wtc.

Mind blown. But that is a crazy, total coincidence, right? Even has the same exact shape. And the setback of 4 WTC has about the same height of the new 7WTC.

Sorry, but I don't agree with that assessment. 4WTC is its own building.
