This reminds me of tower 4 when it first started. A lot of people thought it was going to overtake tower 1. Lets see if tower 3 overtakes tower 4.

And the point I'm making is who's going to finish first, I know this is the taller building.
I'm putting my money on WTC4.

Well, it's a safe bet. WTC3 is scheduled to reach street level by December 2011, by that time WTC4 should either have topped out, or be very close to it.

not a chance unless there is unexpected delay. Tower 4 will be finished first.

4WTC is goin' to be up first, but 3WTC is damn fast...It was behind 2WTC big time, and look at it now..

Does it just look that way or is WTC 4 extremely close to WTC 3?

It just looks like that from the air...There anough space (and there a lot of space) for the street..And that's all why it's needed..

There will be no street between Towers 3 and 4, or Tower 3 and the Transit Hub. Just walkways.

This is another reason why WTC3 will not overtake WTC4.

Speculating that 3WTC might overtake 4WTC at this point seems really, really absurd if you ask me. You barely see the footprint being carved out, while 4WTC is already several stories above ground and rising...

it looks messy there
must be hard to do this job in a dense city like this, and such a huge project..
Im curious how it will go.. and when we get to see a kinda clear shape rizing!

Design of the whole project looks great though imo!
