I happen to notice that for some reason that escapes me 4 WTC is very slow to rise while Freedom tower is bustling with activity. Is there some specific reason for that?

Yeah, there averaging about 2 floors a month right now. It's up to the 13th floor at the moment. They've stated they'll be to the 45th by 9/11/11. That's 32 floors in ~8 months. They'll need to start doing 4 a month to make it.

Silverstein is sitting on $1.3 billion worth of bonds awaiting to be sold to fund the rest of construction. Given that he's also building 2WTC and 3WTC at the same time with the rest of his insurance proceeds, he's probably going slow on this one till his bonds sell.

Not bad. I hope they can do it.

I appriciate the following particular view to 4 WTC, because it was impossible all the years and sometimes one could think it was never meant to happen:

Yes, the former Deutsche Bank / 130 Liberty Street is (more or less) gone, and the crane has been removed on January, 20th. So it was finally possible to turn down this 9/11 victim after more than 9 years! Quite a relief that this unfortunate ruin is out of sight.
I wonder if someday there'll be a 5 WTC, that was planned in the mid-2000's.

Here some more recent wirednewyork.com pics of the 130 Liberty Street site.
If somebody told me where I still can find the Deutsche Bank deconstruction thread, I'd move them there (it's not in DN Archives, maybe it's too old)...

.... Pics put to World Forums/Architectur ....

I wonder if he finally located any anchor tenants fro these towers? because unless there are ones all construction on #2 and #3 towers will stop at ground level.
