Actually, I believe they are squares if you look straight down on them. They just do not look square in the renditions because of how they are cut on the bias at the top.

thanks man, enjoyed it. a vid is so much better than a picture, especially when they are doing foundation work.

It is amazing to see this section of the WTC site. I was standing under the curved entrance cover of the Millennium Hotel on Sept. 11 2007......and it looked so different to this : ) This half of the site was never excavated like the 'Bathtub' under the original towers.

yes, I tried finding one like that, but couldn't find one. if you search wtc 2, you get mostly 911 related stuff.

I knew the shape was not square, but I wasn't sure exactly what shape

thanks for the updates. why are 2wtc, 3wtc, and 4wtc progressing so slowly compared to the freedom tower? are all 4 towers projected to complete around the same time?

Because they're not paid for. 4WTC is under negotiation to get its financing backstopped by the Port Authority (a deal has been agreed to, but nothing is signed). 3WTC will be built up to a few podium floors for the time being. 2WTC will be built to street level.
