    Would someone please tell this guy there is no such thing as 'Freedom Tower'? It's like nails on a blackboard not getting the name correct.

    Now that the hideous redesign of 2WTC seems dead it would be nice of this tower had its' 4 spires returned to it. Unfortunately it probably won't happen once they designed them out to accommodate the...

    On my list of the top ten most tortured analogies:
    'Even though they are not twins, they are not identical, they have a sibling relationship going on.'

    They sure do. They hate each other.

    Silverstein comments that the Foster design as well as the other towers are so 'last decade' and this design is somehow more current. Given how long it takes between a final design and the completion...

    I apologize if I came across as 'snarky' as my intention was to use an extreme comparison tongue-in cheek to describe just how bad my reaction is to this new design. I am not an architect but like...

    Either Donald Trump or Sam McChang would have been better. Just put a 1,300 foot Holiday Inn Express there. Or something pink with gold faucets. Please.

    I didn't think something could be this bad. Here's hoping the deal falls through. Never thought I would say that. To paraphrase a line from Spinal Tap; 'On what day did God create 2 WTC and couldn't...

    My one problem with the Shanghai skyline that I have is the obligatory antenna and observation ball structure. Toronto and so many cities in Europe have them and they are neither unique or...

    If Extell doesn't try to claim the spire as part of the building like at 1 WTC, Durst might keep the increasingly false illusion of tallest in the Western Hemisphere.

    Maybe in the not too distant future. This tower's new height pleases me immensely as one of my concerns has been that the 1776' official height of One WTC would become a defacto height limit such as...

    This doesn't upset me too much. Were it a Windows On The World type restaurant it would, but I am guessing (It is Legends after all) that the food will be on par with the better food options found in...

    It doesn't appear as narrow on the skyline as I was led to believe. Perhaps once it is at full height.
