I think Larry should build 2WTC before 3WTC. 2WTC looks better and is far more iconic.

I like 2 & 3 the same. 1 the most & 4 the least.
I still love 4 a lot but I'm definitely very excited for the rest to rise.

I would like very much a project like this one were being constructed here in Brazil. Here are many good projects, but the burocracy and some old laws don't let the development of a big project at cities like São Paulo, for example.

NY is a great city, I LOVE NY!!!!!

Brazil has come a long way and is getting better. Good luck to you and your country. I'm glad you appreciate this mighty city, and the development of this building is a huge impact for us.

"Today, for the first time since 9/11, every part of the new World Trade Center is under construction," developer Larry Silverstein said.

Crews have completed the foundation on World Trade Center 2 and 3, and the buildings have risen to street level from about 80 feet below ground.

One World Trade Center has climbed to 80 floors, while 4 World Trade Center has reached 48 floors out of 72, officials said.

"I expect these buildings to be impregnable," Silverstein said when asked if the new structures could withstand an earthquake.
