Really? But then they added vertical lines on the other sides of the building, which was not in the original plan. It's like they wanted to add on a little flair to the building once they removed the braces and the needles, perhaps to make it a little more distinguishable from the other WTC towers. It still looks okay - but the braces would have been nice.

Foster's 2WTC was 1358' at one point, just 10' shorter than 1WTC

If you see it in person, it looks amazing.

I think that 2 WTC will be spectacular.

Wait this in in the supertall construction section now? why?

Do we even know if it's still a supertall?

Because the foundation has been built, and it's ready to rise... and yes, it will be a supertall.

The foundation has been built for like over a decade... and there's not even "on hold" in the title. Just find it a little odd, this is clearly not under construction unless I missed something, which is why I asked.

We do know that it will be a supertall. It's been on hold forever, like the rest of the supertalls in this forum that are on hold. We just don't move a bunch of threads back and forth, because once something is already under construction, it's no longer in "proposal" status. It's waiting for completion. Sort of the way a game that's in a rain delay is still being played, despite the delay.

It should be built to the original design or at least height. Lower Manhattan should have its complete anchor back.

No, the Foster design is coming back with some updates and possible height increase.

^^ Nice if true. I just something to be built here within the next ten years.

You'd think Silverstein would want to see the complex complete before he passes, I'd imagine he's doing everything in his power to make 2 and 5 happen before then.

I don't get why mods let people randomly bump this thread with no relevant news.

I think he was asking how come the thread titles for Toronto's The One, Dubai's The Pentominium, and many others say "ON HOLD" but this one doesn't.

It's on hold, and has been on hold, which is why it's usually locked. Unless people have something to add.
