Woww!!! Sorry, but I have to "spend" my post number 300 here...I have to say that this is my most expected project, also with Fordham Spire!
The two northamerican cities with the mot impressive skyscrapers, as it mst be!

By the way, here's a very silly question...is there a competition between Chicago nd New York?? It'd be just natural.

Great chicago and New York!!!

Febo, at least you see that FS is just Chicago's reaction to FT; it's natural.

Well, letís not make this into an NYC vs. Chicago fight ó because itís clear that NYC would win.

But seriously, this could turn ugly quickly.

(Almost as ugly as the Sears Tower.)

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.
Haha.....This tower sucks any you know it. I saw the Twin Towers fall on TV and have been to NYC many times and as U.S. citizen I think we deserve to have New York look like New York again. Two big towers in Southern Manhattan is the way to go.

Oh, come on! You just trying to make this a versus thread by saying that NYC is better than Chicago! Saying Sears Tower is ugly. So is your empire state building...you know the battle goes on

I will say FT isn't as nice as it should be but since it is build for certain memorial reason, I would like it to be build soon!

The Twin Towers were beautiful boxes, you think the towers were plain, then look at the freedom tower thats really plain, out of place and a really ugly base, 20 floors and no windows what's so ever, and you say the twin towers were ugly.

Ok, first of all... who the fk do you think you are to tell me what i know? This tower does not suck. Your lame, recycled half assed opinion sucks.
I saw the twin towers falling from the jersey turnpike. That was alot different than your Tv picture. As someone who lives blocks from this i think it's just fine. I am happy it's going up and all the baby bullshit whining is NOW IRRELEVANT. So whine all you want! ****** babies. You HAVE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SAY IN THIS. You mean NOTHING as far as this is concerned. In the long run, what your protesting is going to rise right infront of you and you can't say boo to that. That is the best satisfaction with all these little moaning pricks that have no right and no say in any of this, just keep complaining and tell me where it gets you, hows about that fm. There will also BE 2 large towers ( Maybe 3) in LOWER MANHATTAN* not southern manhattan. They won't be twins. Big deal. Move on with your life. If you have one.

Beautiful boxes? Seagram is a beautiful box, hell twt is a beautiful box. The former wtc? Beautiful? Powerful , yes. Awe inspiring, absolutely. Beautiful? Far fetched. They're gone, get over it. The new WTC is far from boring. It fits in just fine. Good Job, bravo, yaddda tada too. I can take them and i can leave them but lets not take 2 steps back. Lets take 2 steps forward. A design for today, or the Late 60's all over again? You pick yesterday and tell me how quick they'll put them up, in that spot. Ha not gonna happen open your mind , and shut ur mouth.

Yes it is under construction. My question to you is what do you want? What more do you want? If the current design was being built in your city, would you be complaining? Ten bucks says you would be gloating.



THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS THING IS BORING AND UGLY IS BECAUSE IT IS NOT WHAT THEY WANT. OTHERWISE IT REALLY ISN'T.

ISN'T THAT CHILDISH AND PATHETIC?

ANSWER: YES.

Have a nice day.
