When are they going to start on the foundation? Do they have to excavate another layer of dirt or are they pretty much as low as they can get before they have to start blasting?

I think they scraped it down to bedrock and even started some of the core blasting before they stalled work a couple of years ago. so they can resume blasting for the footings right away.

Unless I'm terribly wrong - and I'm 99% sure that I'm not - the height includes the little spikes.

So? It's shorter than 1WTC and 2WTC, too. It obviously wasn't designed to be a recordholder.

With all due respect, can you tell us why you think it's the best of the four? Am on it for tower 1 as the best, it's has the height to stand among its equals and, the facades distinguished it from the rest.

Is hard to say wich is the best. But I like WTC3 too. (I think is the cladding)

@SSD Darth Vader: From what I know, the roof will be at 1147 ft. (349.7m)

I wouldn't say this is my favourite building of the complex, but i love buildings where the structural columns are used in the design like 3WTC.........

That's exactly why it is my favourite of the four. It is an awesome design feature, it's what makes the Jan Hancock Center in Chicago and the Heron Tower in London such great buildings. Of course the diamond roof of 2WTC is massive competition in terms of design quality, having both towers right next to each other is more than a treat, it's pure heaven for anyone who appreciates high quality supertall architecture.

Definately my favorite one of them all. For some reason I like tower 2 but dont think it really fits in well with the rest of the flat roof buildings around it, but everyone else seems to like it a lot so Im okay with it.

Yeah i agree, because of the quality and the design of all the towers its hard to choose a favourite, but i think that this would be it if it was a little bit taller. Height is one of the things that the other buildings have over this.

I think Tower 3 looks better because it's right next to Tower 4 which has minimalist design..So, yes, I think that it has great design, detailed, it has height, and what I like the most, column free corners...

Nothing so much differentiates it from the Jan Hancock center in Chicago rather than the height and cladding. Taking something along the line of the old is not so much inspiring to me. I still do admire the tower 1. At least, is not so imposing some box-like look.

Did you seriously just say that 3WTC is the Jan Hancock center with different cladding and height? That's factually incorrect, silly, and if nothing else, showcasing an urgent need for a thorough eye exam.

You can arguably disagree with me by pointing out the reasons why you think so.From my most simplistic approach, I think the first most basic differences are the height and cladding,at least for none-professional.
