The design will stay the same. The main reason for stopping is probably the lack of tenants.

^they're still looking for tenets... Funding issues. I'm not sure about the design, but hope it stays roughly the same

Yeah, the building is just going on hold. I'm glad to see the 3WTC finally going up, hopefully the same will happen with 2WTC soon too. It could be months, maybe a couple of years until this one starts jumping levels, though. Who knows.

WTC3 will go on hold at 7 floors or so. Same reason.

I hope 2 wtc does not have a design change. The best design of the new wtc imo.

2WTC will not get a design change. Silverstein has claimed that this is his favorite building of the new complex and it will only be built as it is being planned.

regardless, with the current structure and foundations in place, is is not possible to make significant changes (except for height perhaps).

Actually the worst redesign I can imagine is the removal of the unique metal fins in the facade which would break my heart if they removed them.

I just got back from spending a week in NYC. My favorite uncle, who put me up, lives only a few blocks away across the street from the new Beekman Tower.

Anyway, I spent some time observing the construction site at the World Trade Center. It seemed to me that there was some kind of activity going on a WTC2. No, I'm not confusing it with WTC3 or WTC4. Maybe no actual building going on ... but ... some kind of construction activity nonetheless.

Totally.

Can't wait til they figure out the tenant situation. This is going to look great in the skyline.

It's as spectre has said, all their work there is just finishing the underground levels and preparation for 2WTC's nap

there are so many things i dislike about this entire project. it would be wonderful if they pulled this design. it's a really nice design but, for me, it doesn't fit. it stands in opposition or defiance to tower1. the best thing that could happen here, which probably won't, is that a much taller building with a redesign be placed there.

Although this tower is shorter than the 1st tower but it's great.

The height is a humiliation the way it is. They should make the roof height be at least 416 meters, preferably at least 418 meters (to beat the Twins)

I think it's as tall as the old WTC.
I don't think they wanted it to overshadow the current 1WTC, so they made it shorter. A shame, because I think it's the best design out of all four buildings.

I don't think it's the best, but maybe that's just me.
