This building was overrated from the beginning. My feeling have never changed about it.

This thing now seems to be above street level. When I walked by and Saturday you could see things popping up over the fence.

I finally convinced of the new WTC, really impressive.

I love the complex.

By the way the tower is going great, I love that modest and well-American design.

Are the spires on this building going to light up as well? I remember reading that they were going to be lit in a manner similar to Tower 1.

I quite agree with most people here that everything should be lighted up. Meanwhile, any latest image update would do a lot.

Are they going to build anything on the site of the old Deutsche Bank Building? (130 Liberty ST) It's just a big hole right now

Great video. Too bad, 3WTC got an 80 foot height cut. without the spires, it is barely taller than 4WTC. I hope that's not an omen of what's to come for T2.
