Which tower would you rebuilt?

Avala TV Tower and Odinstårnet as tourist attraction and for TV broadcasting, the radio mast Gabin for high power longwave transmission (and perhaps FM transmission), the Mittelturm Königswusterhausen for carrying antennas for VLF transmission experiments (and as a landmark for Germany!).
I am a DX-freak!

Hm yeah maybe the WTC indeed, but we'll see what the Freedom Tower will give.

And I'd rather finish the so many unfinished churches, for example in Belgium the cathedral of Antwerp, which would be the largest church in the world.
Unfinished churches in Belgium with the height they have and should have reached:
Antwerpen, Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal: 3 towers of 123m, 65m (should have been higher than the 123m one), 48m (there were 7 towers of at least 123m planned)
Antwerpen, Sint-Jacobskerk: 55m (should have been taller than the cathedral)
Mechelen, Sint-Romboutskathedraal: 97m (167m)
Mons, Eglise Sainte-Waudru: (190m)
Gent, Sint-Michielskerk: (134m)
Leuven, Sint-Pieterskerk: (3 towers of 136m, 165/170m, 136m)
Roeselare, Sint-Michielskerk: 64/65m (tower of 91m was blown off by the wind)

Completely agree...and not just demolishing it, but then replacing it with the turd built on its site. A pox on all involved.

This is not a tower, but I would love to see it rebuilt.

^That's great, but WTC is still the one I'd love to see rebuilt most.
