The WTC indoor observatory was nice, but the roof was awesome.
I want to see what people say when they visit the site when it is complete. And who said these are not state of the art for today. And given the history of this location im not that shocked it has taken this long. This wasn't a clear dirt lot like in most countries. Just build it and it's complete 2 years later.

It was decided from the start, and correctly, that the office space would be phased in by demand. Having that office space in only two towers would mean that there would be no second tower going up for a long time.
The original WTC took at least a decade to complete.
I don't see what the problem is with the 'shorter' tower 2. It's less than 100 feet. And if you want to look at it as a tape-measure issue, two extra 1000 footers in the package.
On a structural or volume basis, don't you think it's a bit jaded to dismiss all this.
^2 World Trade will be 1,350 feet tall from lobby surface to the tip of the crown. The couple of articles stating 1358 are mistaken.
I like Tower 1 reflecting Tower 2 reflecting Tower 1 back at itself. It probably means I need to blur the reflection more.

Wow str, amazing job.
The death rays reflecting off from all that shiny glass can melt steel.
STR that wasn't funny! I almost believed that for a moment!
I could live off the renders any day!
Nice renders STR. Tower 2 really looks like a pig. Ugly, ugly thing.
I stand corrected WTC tower 2 1350'
