Probably would have been a better idea to not start the thread with provocative statements, but hopefully this thread can stay on topic.

Can someone repost the most recent pictures? I'm not very skilled at posting images.

from the last thread...."old 1WTC height including antenna, 1,727 feet, as opposed to the new one, 1,776 feet." so i mean its pretty much the previous WTC just 50ft. higher, and this time it counts!

A few pics do no harm in case of a new thread









Completion - 1st Quarter 2011

Size - 2,600,000 sf

Floors - 80-foot-high public lobby topped by a series of mechanical floors form a 200-foot-high building base. 69 tenant floors rise above the base to 1120 feet elevation. Mechanical floors, two floors to be occupied by the Metropolitan Television Alliance, restaurants and observation decks culminate in an observation deck and glass parapet that mark 1362' and 1368' respectively — the heights of the original Twin Towers. An antenna supported by a cable structure rises to a final height of 1776'

Location - Freedom Tower is located in the northwest corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, bounded by Vesey, West, Washington and Fulton Streets.

Building Amenities - Observation decks, world-class restaurants, and the Manhattan Television Alliance (MTVA) broadcast and antennae facilities.
All floors served by direct elevators. Cross-over elevator banks at floors 20, 29, 37 and 45.
Ground floor contains a secure, 45-foot-high marble and glass entry lobby facing Greenwich Street, where access is limited to black cars and taxis.
Loading dock with five bays accessible from Washington Street.
Each floor served by individually tenant-controlled DHX units.
Each floor has 6w per sf of power available, with additional power if required.


Transportation - Freedom Tower offers access to mass transportation (including the A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, N, R , 4, 5, J, M, Z and PATH trains) both at grade and through an underground concourse with entry immediately outside the building and running from the new Fulton Street Transit Center to Battery Park City and the World Financial Center.






- The desired schedule for construction, calls for the tower's foundation to commence April of 2006, concrete to grade by the end of 2007, topping out in 2009 and completion in 2011.
- This building will consist of 69 office floors, and 13 non-office floors with uses ranging from mechanical to dining.
- Ground for actual construction (different from the cornerstone placing) was broken on April 27, 2006.
- A parapet wall around the roof will bring the building's height to 1,368, the same height as the old North Tower.
- The 187-foot-high base will be concrete clad in over 2,000 pieces of prismatic glass.
- The 408-feet tall decorative spire will encase an antenna with a lighting system to make it into a beacon.
- Foundation work started in July 2006.

I like this project, because this project means a new future to the city of New York, I like the design of the buildings, of the subways stations.

I still think that the new design would have looked even better in a twin set.

I find it weird and retarded how people say that they dislike 1 World Trade, but the next sentence say they want two of them. I don't get it. Anyway..the base looks cool.:

What happens if someone falls in the pit?

There are no barriers to protect the public.

If you fall into the pit then you deserve to.
