With all the construction going on in NY, maybe they are just running out of qualified construction workers ?

Sorry, this might have been asked and answered before already, but does anybody know if the setbacks will be accessable from those floors, to be used as terrace space?

The terrace is private for the anchor tenant

Compared to what the water looked like back in the 19th century up to the "brutal" days of the 1970s and 1980s, that water looks pristine and wonderful. There were literal instances of the Hudson being so polluted it caught on fire lmao

I can't wait to get back to NYC. After creeping on this forum for so long, it has shown me so many buildings I want to see.

If you had the choice, would you have a office in 1 WTC or in another building in the WTC complex to be able to see 1 WTC out of the windows?

It does. But again it's right next to 1 WTC... which makes it look not as tall as it really is.

I guess if you look up at it from church street that it can unleash its full height.

And even more so when 2 WTC is completed. Both are much taller.

Not for anything but the building on the right must be the most boring, lame skyscraper ever. I think I could design something better in Sketchup.
