Actually, it would look better in place of the new 2WTC.
















Well... no, not really.

I knew somewhere there would be a building design heavily inspired by Paris's iconic Eiffel Tower. And reception on this has been pretty negative. I guess this is why we just can't make absolutely everything in a major city "beautiful".

The difference:

1. The Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas belongs to a theme hotel. So they built a copy of the Eiffel Tower to perfect the illusion of being in Paris.
2. The Eiffel Tower supertall Building copy is planned to be a neutral landmark for a city and they just copy an existing design

That was his point. Build caricatures in a place like Vegas or Macau but not in a city that is working to modernize, or you turn your city into a caricature itself.
