    Interesting video Sherpa. I manage to find an excuse to visit a friend of mine who works there about once a month. (no cameras allowed)

    PS: Some of the greatest buildings in New York are being made in New Jersey. (Tower One, Tower Four, and the transit hub)

    The Angle Master and the Pantograph are some of the small toys they have, the Beam Line is to die for and the overhead crane capacity is a wet dream.

    At WTC.com, which Sherpa referred us to, there is a video that shows the curtain wall mock-up for Tower 2 and it has a copyright of 2010. I thought that was kind of interesting.

    Headspace for those double-decker buses.

    Very Few Workers visible. What time of the day was this shot taken?

    Mid-morning. Maybe it was break time? Your right, it looks empty, but I just looked out the window and the site is full of workers.

    In the vid on the T2 facade mockup, I wonder why Silverstein was wearing those sunglasses similar to the ones Ray Charles used to wear.

    Was in because of the shining facade?

    The floorplate for this is a lot smaller than I anticipated.

    The renderings always made me feel like I'm looking at a stocky 600' box. But it's barely wider than 1 Liberty, which I think has decent proportions at 740'; and this will be nearly 250 feet taller. This will probably be quite elegant and slender.

    I'm excited about this tower since I'm still not sure what to expect.
    It's not such a cut and dry architectural design like 1 WTC, which I feel is only interesting from an engineering point of view.
