Construction at the side of One WTC

Hi, wondering what is the building that is under construction neat One World Trade Center. Maybe somebody knows ?

I am pasting a link to a view from the Brooklyn Bridge http://oi61.tinypic.com/24v5xe8.jpg

I am almost sure is the one I marked, but being near the memorial you can see the construction site.

Also what's the building at the right of the picture?

Thank you!

Wikipedia seems to say it is the Two World Trade Center

You're asking about the building with the red crane on top? It's definitely not 2 WTC, it's nowhere near 1 WTC and it's TINY. (Not in height, in footprint.)

Not sure is what is shown in the picture, but the area is closed at the side of the World Trade Center Passageway's exit I thought from the Brooklyn bridge it was it, but not sure.

I think your building is 33 Beekman Street, a new dorm for Pace University:

Yes, it seems to be the one in the picture.

But definitely is not the construction I meant, I found this picture I took on site http://oi60.tinypic.com/10cvwhz.jpg

Sorry, thank you for the effort in looking for the building in the city just having the crane as the most valuable information :)
