I don't think we'll have to wait too long. Once 1WTC is fully open & starts bringing in a lot of money via the Observation Deck & being a financial hub with all its tenants, companies will want to move to the Trade Center. I don't know if 2WTC will consist of several companies or one entire company, but I'd say it will be built by 2020.

But remember, revenue for !WTC from their OB deck is only going to open in 2015. Even if they did start this in 2015, it'd be pushing it for 2020 completion.

I hope they pick 2 WTC, too. But I think they will. If they overlook the fact that the former 2 WTC got blown up in airplane fuel.

2 WTC is a great work of architecture- if it weren't the replacement for the World Trade Center site it'd be a great iconic tower by itself. I hope Citigroup realizes the despair all the 2 WTC lovers are going to feel if they don't get this built. And that this tower has historical significance. Because Hudson Yards is already going to get built anyway, but we don't know when 2 WTC's construction will start.

The base of this tower is so much nicer than Rogers' base-design for 3WTC. The latter I find looks like an electrical sub-station and is rather dull. I think this will have the best base of the entire complex. WTC1 base is so atrocious and a design failure. I don't want to even think about it.

I certainly agree with your comments but don't forget that the base of WTC1 wasn't designed by architect, it was designed by NYPD!

The cladding of 1WTC's base is phenomenal in my opinion.

If it was just the base for 1WTC I would still visit it.

Depends on where the logo will be located. If it's a sign in front of the entrance so that everybody can see it, then it's ok. If it's visible on the skyline, then no.

No, they only go to the lower floors.

Yeah...stairways in the tower would have to be inside the core.

No. Maybe only in the lobby. No WTC building should be tainted with the ugliness of a logo.

Especially that giant red arch on the side of a beautiful glass building.
