I can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s out of place, annoying, almost stunning and almost cool all at the same time. LOL. Depends on the angle. There was a classiness to the Foster design. Perfect for a big bank or law firm.


#565

Foster’s design is great, but so is this IMO. It remains to be seen which is built, as the tenant will decide.

If Chase becomes the tenant, King Jamie may opt for Foster. If Facebook takes the space, it likely would chose BIG.

Personally, I think that most tenants would like the outdoor spaces that BIG’s design offers.


#566

We will see.


#567

I agree.


#568

The only thing is did Foster’s tower generate any real interest before Bjarkes design??

It’s seems to me Bjarkes is the one getting the most interest, so we’ll fmdefinitely see.

Either one built and Silverstein and me are good! :smiley:


#569

I agree. I just hope that Larry isn’t full of sh.it about talks with a tenant.


#570

this building will be iconic. everyone will know what it is once it is built. 3 world trade center would have been too before they neutered it.


#571


2.8 million square feet


#572

As much as I want 2 WTC to be done and the main complex finished I would gladly wait for the right tenant to come along that will give this tower a design it truly deserves.

There is some kind of excavation at the east side of the site, but this is not construction


#574

You’re right!
I wonder… Hum…


#575

I’m guessing it’s probably something to do with finishing that area of Church street. I would assume with 3WTC coming online in the next year and a half they’re going to finish it up and keep T2 gated off around its true footprint. Hopefully at that point though construction would have already began on 2 WTC.


#576

would this be any demolition of the 2 wtc footprint?


#577

Not sure at all, someone has to go to the site and ask what’s going on


#578

Some kind if excavation


Clearing up some of the south side

I know it doesn’t have tenants yet, but I think they’re prepping for construction


#579

Let’s keep our fingers crossed!!!


#580

I’ve had mine crossed!


#581

Is it possible that they might be capping it because they think construction won’t occur any time soon?


#582

It’s already capped, no? I believe this is the state it will sit in until construction resumes.


#583

I think you’re right.
