It turned out pretty decent considering all the design changes, makes me think about how nice it would've looked if all the design changes didn't happen. Anyhow, always a pleasant impression when I see an all glass tower rising in the 21st century. :*

When will the "external elevator" be taken down of the east side? Anyone knows?

^Tower 2 would be more to the left. But yeah, fingers crossed that BIGs horrendous design gets rejected!

A very good tutorial for someone who want to build WTC
on minecraft. It's very well explained.
Enjoy it!

^ I would be against both designs; BIG's and Fosters.. I would prefer BIG's over Foster's.. only because Foster's look like a tower that has been halved or sliced.. reminiscent of a half built tower.. I would prefer another box honestly.

If Foster's would be made taller, the design would really gain a lot.

It would then rise above WTC1 roofline , which would go against the original spiral plan of Danny Libeskind. It would have been a better tower to have instead of Child's design for 1 WTC, which is a bit bland.

Out of proportions, I'd say but from this angle it would look pretty good if this one would be the tallest.

I think as long as the center of the diamonds isn't higher than 1WTCs roof, it wouldn't look higher even if it would be. So an additonal 20-30m or 60-90ft could be nice, more is looking bad imho.

I just hope it's get build, Fosters 400m Version is fine i think.

Nice, woolworths black net is gone. Now redevelop that black box north of it to something graceful.

Man the top looks sad and lonely without the spires. This entire site has been neutered. 1wtc with the spire, 2wtc being turned into a turd from the greatest building ever rendered, 3wtc with the spires, hell is 4wtc the only one that hasnt gotten the chopping block?

I agree with boss-ton. 1WTC and 4WTC are still great buildings (4WTC my favourite) but this one is a bit disappointing. Too much value engineering.
