The image of the security measures around WTC site remind me of the bordercrossings between east- and west Berlin in the 80ties of last century...

Its understandable in my opinion. This whole area is a major target for terrorists.

Maybe 10 years after it completes construction, they can take down some of these security measures.

So maybe by 2035.

No, they shouldn't do it at all. Sure, it's good to have security on a certain level, but this is just starting to go overboard... the WTC complex is supposed to feel relaxing, not like trying to go through an airport... Besides, they have a security checkpoint already, it's called the VSC for vehicles wishing to go underground in the parking facility.

I'll say it again. Who gives a shit about motor traffic security. The area will be open and walkable for pedestrians and that's all that matters.

This information doesn't need to be posted on every thread that has anything to do with any of the WTC buildings!! if you can't find something relevant to post don't bother posting.

Nice paper model. Is there a thread somewhere that shows how to assemble it?

Hopefully by the time construction resumes early next year, EarthCam will have a camera just for it

Unlike with towers 1 and 4, with tower 3 we have the opportunity to have perfect cam coverage for its entire growth, cause cams can be placed on towers 1 and 4. It'll be pure awesomeness to watch this one rise

Good point. If they do install cams like at 432 Park, looks like I'll start spending more time in this thread.

Once the new complex is completely finished, I expect to see an epic time lapse video from earthcam.

Here's a little news about this bad boy from an article today about Silverstein's ground breaking at 30 Park Place.
http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/2013...ruction-freeze

Quote:
Silverstein is also developing three towers at the World Trade Center site. Four World Trade Center opened last month and 3 World Trade Center is set to open in 2016. Silverstein did not offer an update on 2 World Trade Center, which does not yet have financing.
