SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): Steven Plate, Director of World Trade Center Construction "I think it's going to be breathtaking and when you walk through here and even yourselves and myself when I walk through I can't believe how beautiful it is. When you look at it as an engineering construction project how we challenge ourselves to do something very different and very special to remember the souls of those three thousand people and I think mission is accomplished as we did with Tower One and throughout the site. This is just another very special element of that puzzle that's coming together and it will truly represent something that will define us as a people even though we were attacked that day we rose above it and made this place even better than it was before and that people will come for centuries to look at and marvel at and truly enjoy."8.

Wide of transport hub and One World Trade Center STORYLINE:NEW YORK (AP) _ Hundreds of workers are busy around the clock at the $4 billion World Trade Center transportation hub project. The complex will include trains to and from New Jersey, and links to half a dozen city subway lines when it opens sometime in 2015. The design by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava features two white sections that look like wings. Each Sept. 11, sunlight will directly hit a skylight between them at exactly 10:28 a.m. _ the time when the second tower collapsed. High above the hub is the 104-story 1 World Trade Center. And right above the underground complex lies the 9/11 Memorial plaza. Construction Director Steven Plate said during a tour Wednesday it's more than an engineering feat. He says the project is meant to "remember the nearly 3,000 souls" who died there.
