Greenwich St's gonna look awesome. Flanked by some of the most gorgeous supertalls in the world, the memorial plaza+pavilion and Calatrava's transit hub.. It's gonna be a hotspot !

Atm the plan is to first build 3WTC, and after it 2WTC. The only thing that could change that would be if a tenant said that he wants 2WTC and 2WTC only

Because he doesn't want anybody to redesign it. He's waiting until the economy gets better to build it.

It's his building, how can anybody redesign it if he himself doesn't want it redesigned?

Btw, neither 7WTC, nor 4WTC were redesigned.

Both of them received several redesigns, though in a smaller scale and all occuring before construction iniciated, Four's height increasement (+30') is perhaps the biggest modification.

Including the antenna, is it as tall as the former North Tower or is it a few feet short?
