It looks so beautiful and I love it. It wasn't at surface level on my last New York City trip in late summer 2014.

This shot is epic. 3 WTC being the 2nd tallest downtown as of now. Eventually to be 3rd once 45 Broad tops out.

Hopefully something will manifest at 80 South. Downtown needs more height, Midtown is stealing all of the fun.

IMO, Downtown has the best skyline and aesthetics out of the many nodes.

Agreed, Lower Manhattan is arguably one of the best (in not, the best) skyline in the world in terms of aethstetics and architectural diversity. While it's hard to ignore how much better this could have been with the spires, height cut, and cross bracing, it's still a fine addition to the city. Had it been proposed as is, I'm sure it would have been received more positivity. This has been stated before but I do wish it was a tad bit taller, it's just too close in height to 4 WTC and that really takes away from both towers.

Can't wait to see it in person in August!

I can't get enough of this duo from these particular vantage points.

It looks almost human...like American Gothic, but in a Pesci/Deniro kind of way.

Can’t say I’m impressed.
The original master plan looked completely different.
Until 2WTC is built, this plot of land is still "Ground Zero".

Can’t say I ever desire to revisit at this time.

It would appear this tower has been scaled-down from the original, which was according to the renderings nothing short of spectacular.
Tenant issues, 1WTC antenna/spire alterations and the ongoing scenario with 2WTC are the main culprits I suspect...

I've come to like the end result - 3 & 4 make a nice duo. It's amazing because both are massive structures yet they don't 'steal the show' and blend in so well with the Lower Manhattan skyline.

McKinsey inks major lease at 3 World Trade Center

By Steve Cuozzo
May 14, 2018


Quote:
Global consulting giant McKinsey & Co. and developer Larry Silverstein just signed a 15-year lease for 186,000 square feet at Three World Trade Center, The Post has learned.

In November, The Post was the first to report the two parties were in talks.

The major lease-signing comes just weeks before the 80-story tower’s planned opening — scheduled for June. With McKinsey’s commitment, about 900,000 square feet of the skyscraper’s total 2.5 million square feet are leased.

The tower’s largest tenant is media giant GroupM, which is taking 700,000 square feet.

McKinsey will move about 900 executives from 55 E. 52nd St.

Terms weren’t revealed but asking rents at 3 WTC have been reported in the $80s per square foot.

3 WTC doesn’t look much taller than 4 WTC.
The original master plan looked much different.
Thoughts?

3 World Trade is only 102 feet taller than 4

lack of spires Brings the visual pinnacle down 100 feet. Like the Empire State Building's antenna completes its iconic profile and makes it seem much more dominant than it would be if it just had the mooring spire.

Watered-down, or as the saying goes in the industry "value engineering"... standards are falling faster than the US credit rating

My response to "Value Engineering" is simple:
I value taller buildings.
The taller, the better!!

Blending is fine I guess? Other than the Oculus, this complex is really going to get overshadowed by much better future skyscrapers nearby.
