Here are a few pics of 2 WTC that I made on my Minecraft server. wtcforever (a user on the forums) helped me create this amazing replica.

Wow! I would never know how to do that. But if you were going to complete 2 WTC, you might as well complete 3 WTC with it, because having 2 WTC completed before 3 WTC is just a fantasy.

Silverstein will be focusing on netting tenants for 3 WTC because it is further along in construction and will be put on hold indefinitely soon like this tower if more tenants or other funding can't be found.

What a shame Robert. I mean, come on, this tower is the most scintillating proposal for NYC in a decades. It is far more interesting than anything going up in midtown, HY, etc. It will be weird when in 2030 they are building a design from the 2000's. What a waste. If this thing drags on for decades, I expect a design modification. Hopefully Silverstein will get to see it built, even if he's a 100 or so.

Totally agree, probably the 2wtc is one of the most interesting tower of all the project and not only..

Silverstein has lots of trouble landing tenants for 3WTC and getting his financing for that tower.
So it will probably take a good deal of time before 2WTC gets started. I wouldn't be surprised if that is near 2020. Unfortunately.

Your work is good, Otie.

Crazy idea, but what if they used the diamonds as some type of outdoor restaurant? The view would be amazing.

The top diamond seems to have a floor that is suitable. Not sure how large the floor area would be up there.
