    It's not Liebeskind's fault whatsoever. All that remains of his site plan is the street pattern.

    I do feel that the site is going to be extremely dense. I have said in the past that I wish there...

    The base is an itegral part to the tower as a whole. There were plans from back in the 1920's to build a tower atop the base. This is just fulfilling the legacy. I think this tower is wonderful. ...

    I think that if Childs were to take the tower on the far left, exten it up to a pinnacle and light it from within (like a crown) , it would be ideal. But sadly, it will never happen.
