NEW YORK | 2WTC - 200 Greenwich St. | 403m | 1323ft | 82 fl | On Hold


http://architizer.com/projects/2-world-trade-center/

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Previously, as designed by Sir Norman Foster:





2 World Trade Center - 200 Greenwich Street


Lord Foster’s Tower 2, with a rooftop of four enormous diamonds steeply inclined toward the memorial below, would be as high as the Empire State Building. Tower 3 by Lord Rogers, framed boldly by an exoskeletal framework of diagonal beams, would reach a pinnacle of 1,255 feet at its corner antennas. Even the smallest and subtlest building among them, Mr. Maki’s Tower 4, would be taller than the Citigroup Center in midtown

By virtue of its size and aesthetic bravura, Lord Foster’s Tower 2 at 200 Greenwich Street, between Vesey and Fulton Streets, may draw the most public attention. The 1,265-foot building is to have 78 floors, 62 for offices, four trading floors and the rest for retail and mechanical space. The uppermost of the rooftop diamonds will be a tripod shaped antenna whose pinnacle is 1,350 feet above street level, just 18 feet shy of the Freedom Tower’s parapet.

Construction of Tower 2 will require the removal of the Vesey Street staircase, also known as the survivors’ stairway, which is the only aboveground remnant of the original trade center that is still in place. It served as an escape route for hundreds of people on 9/11.

The main shaft of Tower 2 is to be divided by notches into quadrants, culminating in diamond forms that are meant to lead the eye down to the memorial plaza. The surface of these structures will be a porous screen on which snow and ice are not expected to accumulate; always a hazard on a steeply pitched roof.

That's essentially the one building I actually like at the new WTC. It has a kind of elegance with it's top. To be honest, it really just reminds me of a taller SmurfitStone Building with a variation on the top. Looking forward to this being finished.

It's not 76 fl; it has 79 floors, likely plus the four below grade floors, and it's being preped. If Larry and the PA stop fighting, it will be under construction in December.

From some angles, it has the massing and size and height of one of the old WTC Towers, but from other angles, it's a totally new building.

Don't really appreciate the size of this until its actually making its mark on the skyline. Good to see the World Trade Center has its own threads now!

I really hope the blue cladding keeps its depth, unlike some recent buildings in Chicago. The renderings were much more flattering than the end product. It may still be early to judge as many of the floors remain gutted. I'm partial to the shinyyyy refletivitynessss and deep bluey blue of the renders. I seriously hope they come out somewhat simmilar.

OMG I never knew that white arch looking thing (or whale's rib) was gonna be that massive. And with a road right under it, it will be the most stunning street in NYC.
