A few lights out on the WFC roofs, but wow! Every building in that area has roof lights! And Goldman Sachs is ready to join!

It's nearly finished. It will officially open next year, although Goldman has already been moving in (these things don't happen overnight).

It took me a second to figure it out too, but it's for the tunnel. The angle just makes it look like a big building.

Notice how the buildings in Lower Manhattan go from low rise to high rise as you go further north. Libeskind was definitely looking out fot this when he proposed the ascending swirl for the WTC.

Damn, this building is outrageously bright. It puts the New York Times building to shame.

^^^Yeah, and if only Goldman had followed suit and been either a little shorter or a little taller, then the effect would have been even cooler.

The massing is just right. Any taller it would look out of sorts, and any shorter it would look too stumpy.
