    Aural Ink,
    I think your rendering is spot on, as per vengineers specs but your height is off. could you please redo this rendering, so that Vengineer's specs are followed: The top of tower 2's slanted roof should be 1354, while freedom tower is 1368. also, could you put a flat top tower 3 with height 1150 and tower 4 with height 924 next to them? to top it off, world financial center 3 (the tallest wfc buiilding, with the pyramid on top) has a height of 739 feet, could you add that as well? it would really highlight the coming towers.


    thanks very much

    ^^ what are you implying by those dimensions? Theres some truth to them?

    no...just that his diagram shows tower 2 as over 100 feet shorter than freedom tower, and by the numbers, its only 10 feet shorter.....it could look like a twin...only with a chip out of the corner....

    My questions ...

    Does the apex of the wedge point SW (towards the corner of Greenwich / Fulton) or West (towards 1WTC)?

    Is the entire tower triangular?

    Or does the east facade have more than one plane?

    those dimensions were brought up by Ebola on SSC, but theyre not confirmed.

    Is the pit really 300ft deep? I can't imagine thats right. I would guess 150 ft, maybe 200 ft at its deepest recesses.

    No. The pit is about 70 ft deep.

    The number is arbitrary, but a level is picked that is guaranteed to be below everything, to reduce the likelihood of errors.

    Got it. I misread your original post.

    I dunno, I'll have to see the cladding and how it plays off FT to make my judgement, but at least it carries through with the triangles rising to the sky theme, which is pretty cool in a way.

    i like that particular design, whether it is close to the real one, we'll find out next month.

    Hi guys,

    The depiction made by Aural Ink is incorrect.

    Well, it's not so much that you should be concerned with direct "leaks", like to the media or anything. But this is a public website. We know that other publications, both online and in print, visit this site fairly regularly, browsing for new developments and occasionally, commenting on our opinions. I don't know how much skyscrapercity falls into that category, but I wouldn't be surprised if within a few weeks, we'd be reading about today's developments in an article about the World Trade Center development.

    If the depiction I posted on the previous page is as errant as you say I doubt you have anything to worry about. Please feel free to have a mod remove the post if you so wish. Sorry for the mistake.

    Sorry to side step here, but how long has that "multi-quote" function icon been around (at lower right, next to the "quote" function)?

    I just noticed it here for the first time ...

    [ although it doesn't seem to work ]

    I think the forum had a software update earlier tonight. Couldn't access it for at least a one-hour span...
