Went like 2 weeks ago, the whole thing is pretty nice. When you're standing very close to it, you have to look up all the way to see it.
I love how the the other towers are designed. Tower #2 or #3 looks very good already too.
Supposedly it's going to open up by the end of the year (Freedom Tower).
World Trade Center 1 will be completed in 2013. The surrounding park and museum should be completed by 9/11/2012.
Once again, this is WTC 1. It is not named Freedom Tower, nor do any New Yorkers refer to it by that name.
I can't believe it has taken over a decade to build.
Well, they did have to do a lot of cleaning up. First they have to be careful when taking out the debris from the site since bodies could still be buried beneath those rubles. Second they also have to make sure that the seawall won't give in or else it's going to turn into a huge pool (the site next to the WTC is just a reclaimed land.) There was also the case of redesigning the tower.

I'm equally excited for the WTC Transportation Hub designed by Santiago Calatrava.
Yeah, I thought it looks really symbolic. I believe I read it on the Lower Manhattan site that it was inspired by a bird taking flight. Though the design is not quite unique since it's quite identical to his other works like Gare de Lyon Saint-Exupéry and Milwaukee Art Museum.
