    I think the time has come to stop looking to the past. Look to the future with optimism that PANYNJ and Silverstein know what they are doing. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

    ^Hey, if you're feeling nostalgic, you're always welcome in the WTC model thread.

    As for comparisons, both iterations were/will be incredibly dense. Just absolutely huge buildings, each with 15 million sqft of total space above and below ground.

    Gat-damn I keep liking Tower 4 more and more. Plop it nearly anywhere else and it'd be the star.

    And Tower 2 not so much. Too pushy.

    Any one of the towers at the WTC would be the tallest in almost any city in the world.

    As the towers "break free" of the surrounding skyline there true Majesty will be seen by all. (But being in lower Manhattan they can never be truly appreciated for there hight, too much "competition".)

    Indeed. It used to be my favorite, but it really suffers when viewed from this angle in particular.
