I hope this was a joke on your part. Because the PA has nothing to do with that building.

Since stupid questions don't seem to be too much of a problem on this forum, can someone tell me if the decision was made to continue construction above street level? I am simply too lazy to go back through 60 pages of blogs. Given the fact that the latest beams seem to already be above street level, I will assume that they are going for broke....

Hi David.

As far as I know, the will be stopping once the actual structure gets to street level. Just becomes the beams are above doesn't mean anything, considering that the core is still B3 (I think, maybe B2). However, if they can get an anchor tenant by the time they reach street level, they will indeed, "go for broke."

Hope I could help ^.^

Did they specify that the tenant is interested in 2WTC? Cause if not, the tenant might be very well talking about tower 3 or 4

Yes, Tower 2 thread on another forum..Here's the quote from forumer on another forum:

Quote:
Friend said they're wrapping up structural drawings, and that Silverstein is in serious talks with a big tenant and the tower will probably go ahead without pause.
Hopefully this is true. We'll see.

Hi Yankee Fan.

I must first say that your question has been asked many times. But I won't be like the other douchebags and not answer anyway

To answer, the tower is projected to reach street level by the end of this year. If it can get an anchor tenant by then, it will continue to it's full height. If not, then it will be put "on hold" until it can.

I just hope the evil threat of cutting costs won't jump from 3WTC to 2WTC

Very good work progresses.

I think the best towers in the complex, the diamond-shaped vertex I love it.

Awesome tower design.

i know im getting a little ahead of myself but im excited to see the cladding on this tower. In the renders it looks like its going to be a little darker then the rest of the towers in the complex. Cant wait to see it.
