I hope we won't wait too longer. I hope Silverstein will still alive by time WTC2 completes.

And yes, I too agree that 2WTC is by far the best building of the WTC complex.

2WTC is majestic, but 4WTC is breathtaking. I love minimalism.

2WTC is also one of those shapes that can look staggeringly beautiful in one render, but in the next - from a different angle - it can look weird and disproportioned and somehow a mistake. Because of the unusual angles and perspective tricks of the sloped diamonds.

What I'm saying is, 2WTC is one of those buildings that has to be built to fully appreciate its vision. In renders, it loses its shape and its impact.

Once it secures a major tenant construction will resume. I'm hopeful that it will get one at some point in 2014 but who knows?

I think they've saved the best for last in regards to 2 WTC.

Well, even though there is a deal floating in the air, we are still waiting for the signing of a lease for tower 3. The only way I can imagine tower 2 starting to rise soon is if the trading floors on tower 3 will be filled and another company will want trading floors too. Otherwise Larry will just redirect a tenant to tower 3

You guys are certainly entitled to your own opinion!

I disagree Kanto! If a company has preference with Tower 2 then Larry would happily oblige just to get this baby started, despite having availability (trading floors) in Tower 3.

All we need is an anchor this tower. I hope somewhere a large company can see themselves there... soon!

2 WTC has been my favorite since it was announced. Huge, striking design.

More deserving of the WTC moniker than 1 WTC as far as I am concerned.

Little to none progress has been made on 2 WTC in over a year.

Above ground work has been in hibernation mode.

Everyone has a great avatar, but I gotta say, the U.S. Bancorp Tower is amazing!

L.A.F.2. has the best pictures of the Chrysler building on his avatar! I always like when he changes his avatar! The Chrysler has not made my top ten but definetely make my top 20!

Anyway, back on topic. I think Silverstein, like the vast majority of skyscrapercity fans, likes 2 WTC more. But he likes 3 and 4, too, and he wants to get whatever he can get done. Considering citigroup's decision on their location of their new headquarters, architecture doesn't matter at all. Larry Silverstein is not doing this for the money. He is doing this to prove a point. How do we know this? Because we could have just gotten a memorial and nothing else. But Silverstein wanted something better. So he's just grabbing whatever he can get. And I commend him for shaping this place up.
