New Video of The New World Trade Center

Silverstein Properties, the developer of the World Trade Center site, has released a new video that shows the site's progress and gives a tantalizing glimpse into the future. With some nifty computer graphics and time lapses, the video shows the new One World Trade Center rising up and even being occupied by office workers (though none of them look nearly as stylish as the Conde Nast employees who will arrive in 2013).

The video is a great tribute the progress that is finally being made at the site, 10 years after the entire WTC complex was destroyed.  Unfortunately, the estimates on the site's ultimate completion run anywhere from 2018 to 2030.  Hopefully it'll all be done sooner than later and this gaping scar in Lower Manhattan will finally be healed.
