    Is there any agreement on what to do with the triangular plot to the east of the new 7 WTC, which was created when Greenwich Street was planned to cut through the original site?

    It's a park/plaza in every one of the 15 official proposals we've seen so far. *As for what's going to be in it, I don't know. *I have to double check, but I think libeskind put an entrance to the underground concourse on it. *

    At CB1 meeting on Wed, PA stated it would be a small park, and a possible location of one of the entry points into the concourse/transportation terminal - the others are Liberty Park in SE corner, and Washington/Liberty Sts.

    The new 7 WTC is rising to the south of 101 Barclay Street building. 30 March 2003.

    I was expecting it to hug Barclay Vessey. All around this is a good thing, as always there is not a bad thing about this particular building.

    I had forgotten how far set back on Vesey St the original was.

    Barclay Street has reopened! I had seen vehicular traffic on Barclay for 2-2.5 weeks, but today I noticed I could walk down West Broadway to Barclay, and just stand right across the street from 7 WTC. I wish I was packing a camera.

    7 WTC looks like its going to be the thinest building in the general area, aside from the Millenium Hotel. Its plot is tiny compared to its neighbors and its old self.

    And so far, the construction seems to have reached the first floor on half the site, maybe where the substation will go. I think they were pouring the foundation on the other half.

    Good.
    But the rendering doesn't make it look thin.
    I'm curious to know how it'll interact visually with the freedom tower.
