Thread: 7 World Trade Center - by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill

    Default 7 WTC renderings

    Christian is right.
    People have high expectations about the reconstruction. This one is part of the reconstruction. And I'm getting the feeling we won't see much more before long.

    We may not, and they love to squabble and downgrade, but take it for what it is, for goodness sake! *A start is a start! * That WILL build momentum! * It will make the juices flow! *How sure are you that you know what is best?

    It won't make my juices flow. Bad humor, I know.

    I think people will be disappointed to see another dull box rise as part of the new WTC complex.

    Something, has to start dosen't it?

    Well, yes. But it doesn't have to be anything. I'm not saying this is disastrous either. What would be disastrous is the selection Peterson/Littenberg.

    7 WTC is a good start. *P/L kind of sucks. * Almost every design kind of sucks! *One good cornerstone is this project, this project really matters!

    There's still the possibility that this project stalls.
    In that case there would be a redesign.
    I don't know why the general scheme of the reconstruction excludes the site of 7WTC.

    Because the reconstruction of the WTC could take many years. *Why should Silverstein have to stall 7 WTC, just because the plans for the WTC have been stalled. *If everything goes according to plan, this building will be completed by 2006. *I think Silverstein's "time table" for the WTC is like 2008. *Those 2 years, would be 2 years Silverstein doesn't make money on his building.

    To me, the building is a little better than average and is thus perfectly fine for the location. At 750 ft. it continues the downtown table top though.

    What I find scary is that no matter which of the other design proposals are chosen as the site plan, there is absolutely not guarantee that the towers will be built as shown in the architect's proposal. The PA/LMDC/Silverstein all keep saying that buildings will be built as needed to the size of what the market wants. This building could indeed be the template of what will eventually get built whether the Libeskind, Foster, or P/L site plan is chosen.

    The needs of the market change constantly. It can turn from bust to boom in as little as 2 years or less.
    The construction of a big building takes several years, possibly a decade in the case of a super-tall skyscraper.

    So, the PA or Silverstein or LMDC will always assess the market conditions inacurately.

    I favor the leap of faith.

    Perhaps they got a variance on "design excellence."

    Because the lease on 7WTC was done on different terms than the rest of the complex, Silverstein has absolute say over what goes up there. *Therefore, 7WTC will be built sooner, but not according to a consensus.

  13. #103

    Default 7 WTC renderings

    I think Silverstein built the original 7 WTC.

  14. #104

    Default 7 WTC renderings

    Yes, he did

  15. #105

    Default 7 WTC renderings

    I am running a poll on 7 WTC.

    84 % approve of the new plans

    13 % disapprove

    2% are undecided
