Best Freedom tower(s) for WTC site

What do you is the best tower arrangement for the WTC site? Is it the new freedom tower design, the old design, or two new taller freedom towers (instead of those crappy crystal buildings)?

No! The first ones were too bland. I'd take the old Freedom Tower design over the WTC design!

Bland or not that's what was there first. If the U.S. Capitol building got destroyed I seriously doubt they'd try to replace it with something else. I kinda find it hard to replace something that was so big with something totally different.

The U.S. Capitol example was probaby extreme but if the Library Tower in LA, Bank of China building or Jin Mao tower got destroyed in a terrorist attact why would the NOT replace them to their original look?

I'd like to see one tower at or slightly above 2,000 feet tall.

The new one is more futuristic and I kind of like it. Even though they say its truck-bomb resistant.

I think the new twin towers are actually really great. They look like the old WTC but in a fresh, updated version - the skyline will look kind of the same as it did before 9/11.

It doesn't matter how much the FT gets changed, it still looks as if it's lacking.

Are they going to build two or are those renders just to see what it would look like?

Without a doubt, this was the best. It's a shame this one never gets built..




But, of the Freedom Tower which have been chosen, the first design was the best:
