Thread: WTC Tower One - by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

    Iīve been following this thread for almost three years now, I am very interested in the construction of the World Trade Center and Iīm very thankfull for all the pictures posted on this thread.

    I have a question, are wtc 2 and 3 going to be built? I read that Silverstein Properties couldnīt find enough tennants on time, which was a requirement for the Port Authority to help financing the towers. However I read a posting on Wikipedia about wtc 3 a few minutes ago which said that Silverstein Properties and the Port Authority had come to an agreement over the financing of tower 3. I am confused now, will the whole tower be built or only the eight story high podium?

    The simplest answer is yes, they will both be built. When? That is another question. Tower 3 is rumored to be back in construction this year, the fact they haven't constructed any long term protection over the exposed walls and rebar pertains to that.

    Tower 2 looks much further out, perhaps several years before it might begin again (and perhaps with a different design).

    I'm just suggesting the possibility. Given the trouble to get it started, it's not hard to imagine that a few years down the line, the current design is deemed 'inappropriate', for want of a better word.

    I could stomach a redesign if it ended up being something like the behemoths going up in Midtown (not 432 Park - the others), but if it turned into a stub or a boring box I'd cry for months.

    Ah who am I kidding of course it'll be a box.

    I doubt that CS will take such expensive space.

    Man, i just don't get how this is going to look right with the big bulge on the top but the rest of the spire being skeletal. I like the spires on NYT and BoA, and while the BoA one is certainly skeletal, it seems to end more gracefully than this.

    It's not half way yet. It has stalled for over a month now. Over 200ft to go still.
