Should be more concerned with 2 WTC possibly receiving a height decrease.
Yea but remember, 1WTC is "1776" feet tall.

So anything under that is good

It will likely be taller than 3WTC though because they have to keep the spiral effect. The most recent cutaways/DOB's on SSP showed 1,259' which I think would look good in relation to the other buildings.

I still think they should just make it 1,362 feet tall though. Why the f*ck not?

This is so underwhelming I find it offensive given the significance of the site.
Disrespectful to the nation even! I hate it

i like the design. It is at the very least not super slender and has a nice impact on the skyline. This project just leaves a hole in the current downtown skyline and I hope they build any 350m+ building there now. I don't worry about the design, but that the plot stays empty for longer and longer.

The design is garbage. It's an insult to the original vision of the site. I'd rather the plot stay empty.

As a single project it would be ok, but for my taste it simply doesn‘t fit in the WTC area.

Unfortunately this may be cut down to 383 metre 76 floors
May be beginning construction on sometime 2018 or later
I not making up ... because I noticed few months they’re keep mention 383 metre 76 floors
If they say 403 metre 82 floors I may misunderstand or something else
Rumour out there is 2018 sometime then take four years

slivershite doesnt care about making the city look nice. he cares about making a few extra bucks. silly considering his age.

the only building in this complex with any real artistic merit is 4 wtc with its austere beauty.

at this point i wouldnt be surprised if the 5 wtc site becomes a cough-man/vig-NO-ly budget box hotel or so called "luxury" rentals.

I believe this has been known for a while now. Although at this point I'm not going to complain about a 1,260' building.

The unfinished areas of the site are in a mess! Work on the church has stopped and it doesn't look like any new steel has been added for the Performing Arts Center.

It would be great to hear some news on 2 WTC before the new year, but I'm not holding my breath.

I think it will be in the first quarter of 2018.

take it with a grain of salt, but a source over at the YIMBY forum hinted that we might get a decision from Deutsche Bank on whether or not they will anchor the tower by February.

Either would be great. There's not a city in the world that wouldn't love to have BIG's version of 2 WTC. A 390m leaning tower with setbacks sounds great.
