This looks promising.

Are they already building the plaza between WTC 3 and 4?

The facade on this tower is great! The aluminum stripes echo the columns of the twin towers and the cross bracing also looks fabulous. Looks like it also reflects One WTC from one angle. Picture from Earthcam

I doubt it. They Store equipment and such there. The plaza is usually the last thing to do.

What kind of plaza are we talking here? Is there even space for one? I thought there will only be some kind of pedestrian street between them.

Regarding these helicopter pictures: OMG, they are so amazing! There is no way around the fact, that I have to sit in one of those helicopters when I visit NY the next time.

I'm sorry, he's talking about Cortlandt street passage which is inbetween 3 and 4 WTC.

Passage not plaza. My mistake.

Some more Earthcam progress.



This tower looks so great during the sunset. Cross bracing definitely shows up.

It's pretty amazing how an 1,100 foot tower still looks relatively short when placed near One World Trade Center.

Have to say, I wasn't a fan of the new complex at first, but it really looks lovely now.
Can't wait for Tower 2.

I can't wait either, as long as it's the Foster design they're choose to build. All other towers in this complex turned out great, now we just need the best of the all to start construction! I must say, 3 WTC has positively surprised me, so I have high hopes for 2 WTC.

It is. They should just have left it as it was or do a proper remodification job ala 425 Park Avenue. But this is just horrendous. I have nothing positive to say about the outcome.

Gotta say, this complex is simply gorgeous.
Not sure how 2 world trade center will enhance or take away from this beauty, but kudos to the people who have been working on this site.

I hope to visit before the Fall.

A great photo. Everything slowly comes together. The buildings are all very huge, yet they all somehow make it look balanced out. Now just buiild Fosters WTC2 design and a minimalistic 240m tall WTC5. And it will all be perfect.
