the completion date of this tower has been slipped from 2006 to 2009, and now 2012. Sounds like one empty promise after another.

The twin towers were special to many New Yorkers (including me) they were like family.
:' (
Its like replacing the Eifel Tower with some other thing.
The sad part is that future New Yorkers will not even know how special they were, their only simbol will be that Fake Tower.

Things change. I know that is hard to accept that twin towers will never return to Ground Zero, but that's no reason to bash the hell out of FT; the Twin Towers became so iconic that people can't understand that it is right to building anything less, yet the rebuilt WTC is just as cool. In less than a decade, New Yorkers, and many others, will come to love Freedom Tower and see it as one of the most important buildings ever erected.

you.. and half these other morons are ridiculous. This is a building people. Not a bad looking building at that. Why is it sooooo bad>? Cuz it isnt the twin towers? Move on. If you're not a member of a victims family. Then shut the **** up. If you aren't in anyway part of the effort to rebuild, shut the **** up. If you're not a construction worker taking this on, shut the **** up.
If you're not a lease holder or developer, shut the **** up. If you're a 14 year old kid with a hard on for skyscrapers, shut the **** up. If you're a self proclaimed expert critic, shut the **** up. Get it?
I personally like it, I personally loved the twins. I am still upset and was once Devestated by what i saw IN PERSON.
BUT ALL THESE RECYCLED OPINIONS ARE RETARDED AND IS THERE A NEED TO FILL THIS CONSTRUCTION THREAD UP WITH YOU'RE USLESS OPINIONS THAT SOME OTHER ( KID) WILL PROBABLY SAY IN THE VERY NEXT POST?

GENERALLY

IT DOESN'T SUCK. GOOD FOR THEM. AND FINALLY. PHEW... <^> THE REST OF YOU.

people complained about the old WTC too. now that its gone they whine. what i miss is their massive presence more than anything. consider a landmark restored, my only gripe is that i wish the roof went a bit higher. anyone tihnk itd look better with the old WTC facade/greyish or the current rendering?

Hell to the no!

Personally i never favored them for the way they look. It was the way they both stood out. They were big grey dull boxes!
YES!
I SAID IT!
I DARE SOMEONE TO RIDE ME FOR THAT.

otherwise the new design pushes us further into the today, and not back to tommorow. I was for rebuilding at first. Then like the rest of you I sat around waiting for a descent design to take its place. I was totally thrown off by the fake twin towers, that is the reason i completely changed my mind.
This new design is sleek. It does fit in, very nicely i might add, with the wfc. The spire in the design looks fantastic.
The shape of the building is in my USELESS opinion.. elegant, sophisticated.
The pedistal will probably work out just fine......
The floor count is just fine.. screw a number of floors. Do any of you work there? If not, why do you care so much?
I like the fact it will have a gigantic neighbor and possibly 3 other tall neighbors. Combined with the World Financial Center i think that will look pretty " kick ass".

How can you see this any different?
The burj dubai looks good but this doesnt?
LOW STANDARDS.

I don't think people realize how big it is, nor how huge the whole complex will look like from the ground. I guarantee that many more people will love it after it is built.

whoa finally someone has stood up and said something, i compliment you ny girl.

I hated the old wtc, they were ugly, plain, dull and just screamed no creativity. before they went down, most people hated them, now everyone wants them to rebuild them, how stupid is that. Trump and all you forummers neeed to shut up about rebuilding the twins.

Oh my god it is going to be HUGE.............

Gigantic..........


People don't realize this.

Not quite sure but 2 wtc is supposed to be 1200' ?

Right next to our 1700' ( a la spire) sounds nice... then add a few more buildings over 500 feet and close to 900 feet , possibly and the new path station, then the memorial...
This is a much better deal. Trump has enough going on in nyc I am so happy they told him to keep it moving to chicago.
Once we start seeing height, and progress ( which we will) I am sure all the dumb bickering will come to an end.

Lets see whose bickering...........


would you be if it was built in a prominent location in your city? I think not.

RP1 what does ny deserve? Donald Trumps half assed attempt at creating the past? Make ny, ny again? Like it isn't ny without these 2 buildings?
If it was being built up along the chicago river would you still dislike it?
Better yet how about we build a giant birthday candle there. YAYYYYYY.

Lol.

er.

Eweezerinc, how about louiseville getting this, instead of an acid induced conception , which believe me noone wants. Still complaining then?
Half of the critics in here will probably not see anything like this built near them in decades if at all, and they critique.

Dennis.. come on man.. get real, a black day in history? I seriously hope you mean september 11th and not today. If not, and you're serious, those are some issues with reality ya got there.

I really would like to know, out of any of you bitching and moaning out there. What is so wrong with this complex?

Think real hard....

i miss the massive presence they had. the silhouette of both at certain angles was so huge, making it appear as if it were one giant tower.

this restores that massive presence that belongs there, because thats new york , and i wouldnt have a supertall in anyother place but downtown.
