Tower 7 looks damn good, tower 2 looks like a sand castle washed away by the rain. The Pa should be handing the site over soon.

Towers One and Four are already funded and under construction. Towers Two, Three and Five don't have all their financing in place. Silverstein has some money from Insurance on the old towers but it isn't nearly enough to cover the total costs of Towers Two and Three which is why he is now asking the PA to act as a sort of glorified co-signer.

Now even if Silverstein doesn't get the funding, which I doubt, the foundation and base of Towers Two and Three will still be built because they are integral to the new WTC PATH hub that is being built.

Well looks like they are done with tower 2 site since they now started excavating Transportation Hub. Now only thing left is sort out funding for this tower and we are all set.

The sad part is PA supposed to handover site on September 26, 2008

So, the word is out that the PA did hand this over to Silverstein. So the ball is in his court now in regards to construction.

Keep an eye out for them blocking off the sidewalk on Vesey st.

Just a wild guess, but I have a feeling they'll start work on 3WTC before 2WTC.

Tower 5 as of today is one ugly proposal which I hope will never get build as it is planned today. It needs serious change in design.

Tower 3 has already been under construction for some time. However they haven't started on the core area yet because it is being used as a staging area for Tower 4. So they will probably be starting on the core of Tower 2 before they start on the core of Tower 3.

They are still doing excavation work on 3WTC's site right now. There is still some rock blasting work to be done as well. We probably won't see either 2 or 3WTC start for at least a few more months.

Wow!! This is a very sexy tower. I made a cheap copy of it in my sketchup city. Looks nice but not as nice as the original

We rather the buildings be called classic. Ancient would suggust we have skyscrapers over a 100 years old which we don't. Give it another ten years.

I don't think anybody can dispute that this is certainly the best looking building in the entire complex and certainly one of the best looking in the world. It has clean distinctive lines that are unsurpassed by any building now under construction or proposed.
