Your opinion is understood, but Tower 1 pays the most aesthetic homage to the Twins. Tower 1 is the center-piece. Tower 2 is a compliment to 1 and the memorial, but it isn't meant to be the most important element.

It'll get built eventually. In fact, I'm fine if they wait to finish it. Maybe the construction will keep the real-estate costs down a little bit in the area while I'm finishing my doctorate. Then I can get a better deal. :p

Well, I just hope at least 1WTC and 4WTC will get built asap. With 2WTC and 3WTC they can wait 'til my hair is grey but I want to see at least something standing there

At least this is growing much faster than 1WTC's foundation and there are no problems on this plot like redirecting utility lines and a subway line going through it.

Are those diagonal beams just resting to be put in place or is that part of the design?

I think they are designed that way because of an underground access road that will run from the vehicle security center to 1WTC. The load from some of the perimeter columns has to be diverted around the road.

That is my guess as well. Remember the wacky Y-shaped column at Tower 1? That was quite the process. In fact, if you look at the North Entrance to building, you'll see that one of the red jumbo columns isn't perfectly perpendicular to the ground. It won't be noticeable in the final building, but it is interesting nonetheless.

Get a friend that works there and check it out that way.

But since you have an obsession with Phoenix, that'll never happen.

Or you can try and get a job with an employer in the building. Or pay for your own office in the building. Or....

It is, but it's the best show of all times Besides, I love 80's and 90's shows. But other than Jericho I hate all 2000+ shows

I have it all on DVD. I take it there won't be any, super red steel for this building. I know the base won't be as strong as 1wtc. But that doesn't mean I don't want see, some red steel in there somewhere lol.
