20 years later, the zero-land reconstruction has not yet been completed

New York-Twenty years after being destroyed in the September 11 attack, the reconstruction of the World Trade Center has not yet been completed.

Two planned skyscrapers, a performing arts center, and a church are still unfinished at the site. An annual ceremony will be held on Saturday to commemorate the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attack.

Nevertheless, visitors to the commemorative event will find a place that no longer has the feel of an architectural area, even if the work continues.

The memorial square with double reflecting pools opened in 2011. One World Trade Center (formerly known as the spire of the Freedom Tower) opened in 2014, and the National Memorial and Museum also opened in 2014 on September 11. An underground transportation hub and shopping center opened in 2016. Three other towers used to replace those killed in the attack have also been opened.

However, cranes and construction fences can still be seen around the construction site. The following is the unfinished work:

2 World Trade Center

It is planned to be the second tallest skyscraper at the site, the 2 World Trade Center, which may one day reach 80 floors. But for now, in the northeast corner of the trade center site, only one low building exists as a placeholder, covered with colorful graffiti-style murals.

Developer Larry Silverstein has stated that he hopes to sign a major tenant for the tower before construction begins.

Although the coronavirus pandemic has left the office building empty, the 90-year-old said he believes he will find tenants so that the tower designed by Norman Foster can be built in his lifetime.

“In the final analysis, my goal is to put the shovel on the ground as soon as possible to complete the reconstruction project we started 20 years ago,” Silverstein said in an email statement.
