4 towers is indeed better than none. I too LOVED Twin Towers II (one of the few sensible ideas Donald Trump ever advocated) and I wish they had done that but it was not to be..So we just have to accept what we have. Again it is just a question of money and tenants, we already have 7 WTC, and soon 4WTC and the star attraction, 1WTC.....2WTC & 3WTC are still uncertain..After the original Twins were built, it was almost a decade before the surrounding complex & World Financial Center was built, so it may be several years before we see 2WTC & 3WTC, but if 1WTC does extremely well along with the Transportation Hub & Memorial, maybe things will be speeded along more.

It surely won't take as long to build as the WFC, because the WFC required reclaiming some land from the river, which was difficult. Also, the fact that the foundation is there and ready to go will speed up the wait.

I think it's just anyones guess, as there is no certainty about tenants at all.

Foundations are there, and it's above street level. It will be built.

I am just curious to see the various ways they are going to destroy aesthetically this building as well, when a tenant is found and construction of the actual tower starts...

Who knows, maybe they'll do the exact opposite and make the building better (taller with floors going up to the tripod tip)

A round staircase would be enough. Besides, old people need exercise to stay fit and healthy

Well... Actually they're talking about 2WTC again, huh.


But indeed, please refrain from offtopic talk in here. Thou ontopic talk might be rather hard considering the status of this project...

Well, maybe, though I think it will be finished sooner, maybe 2017 or 2018

Yeah, this is one that is best to just wait, and see what happens. This building might end up being just a stump.

I would agree with that if:

1. The 1wtc would actually be 1776 feet roof/ceiling tall

2. The 4 skyscrapers would be all over 1000 feet tall minimum.
