I agree, I love the height of 1WTC but the most interesting and beautiful building of the 4 is 2WTC.

In that render, I notice 2WTC Has a sort of grille at the top... This never showed in the original renders, and it spoils the purity of the design tbh...

WTC East-Side Development Plan Made Official

"Meanwhile, Tower 2 construction will continue to street level, with Silverstein allowed to start construction of the office tower based solely on market demand and its own capital investment. The development plan also implements a “cash trap” to ensure that the public stakeholders get paid back before Silverstein collects profits from the net cash flows of Towers 3 and 4."

No offense, but what a redundantly self-evident thing to say.

Sadly, this will probably be the only tower to start rising after WTC1 is finished.
