    Sweet render, as always. Btw, I just got a new computer too, but anyway, congrats!

    Anybody have any info on what the immediate plan is for 2 WTC?

    The EarthCam indicates that they are capping what's up now, while still doing some work on exposed areas that will eventually become the lobby. Looks like a small structure on the east end will be usable. And that they're covering over most of the elevator cores (at least for the time being).

    Over all it looks like a confusing mess that we'll be stuck with for the foreseeable future ...

    Anyone know what's going on with this building? Specifically, I walk past it every morning and they're clearly building something. Obviously they're not building the tower, but potentially something temporary? Yesterday morning they were putting some sort of siding up over it. Wonder what they're up to. I'll try to snap a photo.

    Noticed that too, definitely looks temporary.

    That's just siding and a roof structure to protect the walls and other structures that have been built. The whole thing needs to be weather and water proof for many years.

    Suisse Search


    Credit Suisse Group AG CSGN.VX -0.41% is eyeing a new Manhattan home. The Swiss bank recently reached out to a select set of landlords around Manhattan seeking proposals to build or host a new home for the company, according to multiple real-estate executives briefed on the company's search. Credit Suisse currently leases about three million square feet in Manhattan, much of which is in a building overlooking Madison Square Park, but the bank has plans to shrink in the future.
    The candidates include Related Cos. for one of the towers it is planning in its sprawling Hudson Yards development on Manhattan's far West Side; Silverstein Properties for its planned 1,349-foot tower at 2 World Trade Center, and Brookfield Office Properties Inc. BPO.T -0.18% for both a development site on the West Side and existing Lower Manhattan office buildings, the executives said.
    Credit Suisse's lease runs through 2017 at its current U.S. headquarters in the ornate Art Deco tower at 11 Madison Ave.
    Of course, the bank isn't necessarily going to leave. Businesses like Viacom Inc.VIAB +0.67% and UBS AG have recently whetted developers' appetites by considering moving, only to end up staying in place.

    CS will probably stay put thanks to our friend Mr. Basel 3 Tier 1 Capital Ratio Requirements. I also think Barclays is going to pull back on their NY offices. Maybe someone here can bribe Silvio Berlusconi so we can get Banca Intesa SanPaulo into 2 WTC. :P

    I'd rather see this tower built than number 3.

    So, right now it just looks like a mechanical penthouse over a basement. :/

    This building could steal the show. I was looking at the rendering again at the world of Architecture blog: http://www.worldofarchi.com/2012/07/...oster-and.html

    I hate this building. It belongs in Texas.
