Should the Freedom Tower thread me re-named 1 World Trade Center?

We all know that Governor Pataki wanted to appeal to patriotism etc. when he wanted to name the new tallest NYC tower Freedom Tower. However, times have changed, and many people (especially businesses) did not like the name. As a result, the Port Authority renamed the building 1 World Trade Center. Should the thread name be changed?

OOPS! Sorry for misspelling "thread" as "tread!"

Either Keep the name "Freedom Tower" in a parenthesis or contact the developer to tell you exactly what name they intend to give the building upon completion. Do not forget that until the building is completed, the name may change a few times so, to be on the safe side, I would keep both names with the "Freedom Tower" put in a parenthesis in order to facilitate web searches with this name too.

^The name is One World Trade Center, the address is 1 World Trade Center. The only Freedom Tower is in Miami.

The name has been changed. It was changed in 2009 but its owner. To quote:

“Freedom is out of fashion at Ground Zero,” rival tabloid the New York Post said.

The Port Authority announced that the planned 1,776-foot building, now barely above its foundations, will instead be known by the same name as one of the twin towers destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks: One World Trade Center.

Port Authority Chairman Anthony Coscia made the announcement Thursday, saying: “As we market the building we will ensure that the building is presented in the best possible way…. One World Trade Center is its [name and] address, it’s the one that we are using.”
