The old WTC7 is very underrated due to so many people using it to spread stupid ideas. It was a very nice building that did not deserve the hatred it has now.


I can't even search for a picture of it without seeing those blurry images with the stupid red circles

I guess many people didn't even know that it was part of the World Trade Center before 2001.

I think Al Hamra was rather overrated in my opinion, the final result did not make it up to my expectations.

But is it really overrated? I don't hear much about it.

Me neither. I showed Al Hamra to my mom (unbiased judge), and it and BOC Tower were here favorites.

It isn't that popular, but by underrated I understand people don't aprecciate it that much no matter how many people have seen it. It's the opinions which makes the difference.

The forumers on its thread were quite excited about it, but it never grew on me as it did for the rest... who knows... maybe I'm underrating it

I hope I made myself clear Cheers.

Do you have any pictures of what 3 California plaza would look like? I was unable to find any in Google.

Heron Tower (230m 46fl), London - doesn't get a lot of recognition but it is (currently, due to be overtaken by Leadenhall and the Pinnacle) the tallest building in the City, and I think is an amazing skyscraper. No matter what others say!

I agree. It's a great buidling with an impressive steel skeleton

There aren't any renderings of it, but it would have looked similar to the other two towers. It would have been taller though, standing at 915 feet with 65 stories, making it the second tallest building in LA.
