I would've bought it if they only talked about the tower, but revealing their "uncertainty" about the transportation hub being built I get this is just an April fool's prank.

Just wanted to share this drawing of NY landmarks, by me, featuring Two WTC. I hope it does get built, so my drawing doesn't go to fiction section.

Thank you! Yes, it's Grand Central, and there is also a tiny taxi in front of the Apple store.

Lol ya, sorry Its a side view of each side. being that 2WTC is odley shaped at the base, and is not a rectangle like 1WTC, it is a bit harder to show.

This project will be dead for the near future, only when they continue constructing tower 3, we can hope that this one will be restarted..

once they will find all the tenants they need for the #4 and #3 - they will start building again. the easiest thing is to build stuff. But the complicated one is how to make money on this. Even in NYC, even with space A office requirements, even downtown.

This tower is all ready to go, waiting for the gun at the starting line.

Well, it's not totally ready to go up when the time is right, because they still need to build a part of the foundation. I outlined it in red here:


(picture from http://www.wtc.com/ )

Speaking of that, does anyone know how they're going to deal with the columns of that part of the foundation, because there's a subway station directly beneath that part if I'm correct? Do they need to break open the roof of the station (which is at street level) to make new foundations for tower 2?
