It will be a show-stopper. Judging by his comment, I don't think he equated 'sleeper' with 'boring'

I think he means that it's going to surprise everybody with its awesomeness.

Jeez. The base already looks impressive now, and it still has not reached it's full height!

How embarrassing it would be if it was left as a stump for years and years...

'Bout time she resumes. That gap in the Manhattan skyline is just awful.

That lobby looks very Rodgeresque, really can't wait for that one!

So, can we expect steel erection to continue next month? There still doesn't seem to be activity at the 3WTC site.

I agree. It looks very good. The announcements were clear enough, I'm sure this will rise soon.

This entrance comes from Calatrava's hub.

Wow, those renderings look awesome. It is a striking contrast against the 4 World Trade Center exterior and interior design, which is great. A bunch of the same would be boring. That said, time to repeat the One World Trade in the Two World Trade spot.

I wanted to say that I think that the fact that you can see the transportation hub from the west side is pretty nice, because of its seemingly wavy curves, but really, from close up, is pointy and sharp. It's so unique.

And also, how come there aren't any renderings of the full complex when it's completed? Basically every rendering of the world trade center complex is either outdated or only includes 1 and 4 world trade center. I know the reason for this is that the new renderings after the spire change were supposed to be of the complex in 2014 (well, actually now it'll be how the complex will look in 2015), but I would love for there to be one updated rendering of the whole entire complex. (Photoshop doesn't count).



And the artists apparently drew the three world trade center's base (which appears to be completed), and I think the construction cranes are not visible from this point of view.

My version of 3 WTC looks better, I got an image from google that it might have been an earlier render which looks better than what it is in reality.
