They should resume this building right away! I love the unique design! Can't wait to see this climbing its way up the lower manhattan skyline!

It is a shame though that the tower portion may never come to fruition unless a company commits to moving they're offices into the building.

Let's just hope some CEO likes skyscrapers as much as we do and moves into this building

Don't spread false information. As much as I love 2 WTC, there is a chance that it won't get built. It is a 3 billion dollar building, and it will only get built if there is major market demand

I hate to be pesimistic, but Classicrock is right. Look at what happened to the MetLife North Building in NYC

Wrong. The tower will be built, to it's full height as planned. Whether it happens in 3 years or 20 years is the question. When, not if. The tower WILL be built. NY lost a large amount of office space on 9/11 and this tower is to help replenish that lost space.

the site is too valuable, if this design isn't built here, a new supertall design will be in the future

Finally some sense. Everyone needs to relax, and put the NYC commercial market in perspective.

Almost 90% of Manhattan's commercial real estate predates 1970, and New York's premier commercial corridor, Park Ave, has an average building age of 68 years old. There is plenty of natural, cyclical demand for new space.

The problem is A) this is in Lower Manhattan which doesn't have the mass transit that Midtown has which makes Lower Manhattan less desirable, B) there's an election in November so the countries general direction in regard to taxes, health care liabilities for the foreseeable future are up in the air, C) there's a lot of other office buildings planned for Manhattan so there's competition among developers so they're all trying to court the same 30-40 companies.

It was reported a couple of days ago that Brookfield who's building Manhattan West is talking to a handful of potential tenants who are all looking at between 500,000 and 2 million square feet each. And at the end of last year the CEO of Related who is building the Hudson Yards said in an interview he was talking to between 8 and 12 companies who are all looking at at least 1 million square feet. Plus, Time Warner which has 4 million square feet of office space in Manhattan will decide by the end of the year which new development it will call home.

Again, the demand is there, but with Manhattan West, the WTC, the Hudson Yards, 15 Penn, Girasole, One Hudson Yards, Sherwood Equities HY tower, companies have a lot of options in regard to new office space.

This'll be built. Anyone who says otherwise is either lying or has no understanding of the NY commercial real estate market.

If they ever change the roof-diamond design, I'll have no reason to visit the WTC. I'm just glad Silverstein's making sure that won't happen!

I agree. The diamond design is what made this building unique.

No. This isn't going ahead till T3 and T4 fill up substantially. Maybe in a few years. But right now there just getting the site in shape for when it goes completely on hold.

Sorry if this has been asked so many times, but i dont fell like reading 100 pages of the forums. Anyway my question is WHY did they stop construction on 2WTC? And if they ever resume construction will it still be the same design?
