I've been in the complex too, it is a lot of good things but calling uniconic somewhere you haven't been just proves the childish attitude from this guy towards the project.

"but I've seen many mountains" I kind of get his point about the mountains... but it made me laugh so hard.

Just ignore him.

You know what would be uniconic? If he built a parking lot over the entire thing, but instead he is giving lower manhattan a rebirth with the highest quality office buildings ever made. But all everyone cares about is a few meters or so lost, and, get this, the order they're being built in. Calling him greedy..pfft. You people are the greedy ones! It's infuriating to see such ignorant comments, my god.
Surprisingly good post.

No need to bump here. It won't rise anytime soon, the only work being done is at the basement floors until the transportation hub is open.
This is the situation as of 1 february.

It's going to be a while I would imagine. Tower 3 needs to be finalized first with a tenant

Shame Tower 3 is being constructed before Tower 2.

Silverstein's Jeremy Moss Talks 2,3 And 4 WTC



Quote:
Before Jeremy Moss, senior vice president of leasing at Silverstein Properties, joined the firm four and a half years ago, he spent eight years working at Forest City Ratner, a tenure that culminated in a role managing the leasing of the office space at the New York Times building. He called working alongside Bruce Ratner and MaryAnne Gilmartin on the Times building “a great learning experience that prepared me well for the World Trade Center.” Mr. Moss helped oversee leasing at Silverstein’s 7 World Trade Center and is now leading efforts at 2, 3 and 4 World Trade Center. “I feel fortunate to be able to work on such a historic project, particularly as a native New Yorker,” Mr. Moss said when he sat down with The Commercial Observer last week to discuss his leasing efforts at the World Trade Center, its impacts on lower Manhattan and the future of the market.

----

Where are you focusing your energy next?

With 7 World Trade Center fully leased, we’re focused on 4 World Trade Center, which will open at the end of 2013. It’s the next chapter in the history of the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, and I’m really looking forward to walking people into that lobby and showing them the extraordinary architecture and the views. We are very focused on leasing at that building, and we’re in discussions with a number of different companies looking for larger blocks of space—anywhere from 200,000 to one million [square] feet.

Who are you marketing it to, and what can tenants look forward to?

The lobby has a 46-foot-high ceiling, which creates an extraordinary impression when you enter the building. There’s a granite floor, floor-to-ceiling glass and polished black granite on the wall, which is designed to reflect the park behind you as you enter the lobby, intended to make you feel like you’re outside. I can’t think of another lobby like it in New York City. And up top, you have 360-degree views that are spectacular, and the advantage that we have in the location is that we don’t have any other building obstructing our views—we have views of the river, we have views of Midtown—so it’s really spectacular.

We’re seeing interest from a whole range of different tenants in all sorts of industries, and I think that speaks to two things: the appeal of new construction because of the efficiency it offers and the impact that a sustainable building can have on productivity.

Can you talk more about those impacts?

The buildings are all LEED-certified. That not only has obvious societal benefits, but it has a significant impact on the experience of the people working in the building, their satisfaction level and productivity. The buildings are all designed with floor-to-ceiling glass and extra-high ceilings, which allow for an abundance of natural light to permeate the entire space. The views make everyone feel like they’re working in a special place. And the awareness that the space is having a positive impact on the environment also makes people feel really good about their work space.

What’s the situation at 2 and 3 World Trade Center?

We’re in discussion with tenants that would anchor 3 World Trade Center, which would allow us to continue construction to completion by the end of 2016. Construction started and we built the first few floors, which gives us a significant advantage in terms of the time frame within which we can deliver the building to prospective tenants. Two World Trade Center is complete up to street level, and that’s a building that will be triggered by a lease commitment in the future—by a large anchor tenant.

No need to keep bumping this thread. Construction has been on-hold since early 2012.

Only if we have actual news that is relevant should this thread be bumped.

Don't know if you guys heard, but 2WTC is said to be cancelled, and 3WTC will be the last WTC building to be built. It was in the newspaper this morning:
