NYC: Freedom Tower - 1,776 FT/541 M (Part 2)

I'm not sure how many floors the skyscraper has, but if the podium really has 19, like everyone is saying, the tower has 105 stories.

The other towers are still being designed and small changes will be made to Freedom Tower.

Ebola do you know exactly what changes will be made to the Freedom Tower?

I also heard a rumor that the reported height of 1776 feet is a fake data and the tower will be taller than 1776 feet when its finished .I read it in a german newspaper in combinatuion with the secret real height from Burj Dubai.

Did someone have further information about this?

The spire and 200 foot base will be changed, and that's all I know. The other four towers are still being designed, so it's still too early to say anything about them. As for the height of FT, I don't know because I do recall reading somewhere that the Freedom Tower was redesigned to beat the BD, but that was a long time ago and I doubt they will be going crazy with the height if they can't even get the memorial right. If any info like that leaked, everyone would be all over it. If they did change the height, I doubt that they would tell anyone anyway. Also, Silverstein just said it would be the world's tallest, but I bet he means that it will be completed before the one in Dubai.

its going to be one of the most beautiful WTB even though im not totally convinced about its huge spire, an unfair but nice trick to become much taller...... but who cares, Petronas towers and Taipei101 use it and look all the way nice just as 7US will !!!

I like the colors on the base of tower 7, if the FT has to have that base it wouldnt be so bade with that lighting.

that first rendering with the city is mad old. It gives you the idea of it all, but those 4 slanted towers around it are history, all being redone with separate architects for each, and all at least 1,000 ft tall. I just picture all the other towers that are u/c right now into that picture, like NYT, Beekman, Orion, GS, BOA, renovated Verizon building, and countless residentials.

Currently, yes: Chicago has more thousand footers.
However, once the project is done, that could change.

Well.

I really think the architecture and the building itself is really modern and nice but I don't think it belongs to NYC and especially in that part...Too modern compared to all the other buildings...

that looks good, but why don't they stop being little a-holes and just add another tower same height as FT, but without the spire.

Well Chicago has 4 1,000 footers right now, 2 under contruction and one 2,000 foot tower that should start next year. Not sure what New York will have or does have. There are 2 right now right?

Well again, those aren't actual designs. I believe Foster is doing one tower, so that will be spectacular.

I hope the final design would be without the pointed antenna, looks so out of place. New York is a premier city, build a real skyscraper and with occupied floor of above 500 metres. Hope the final design would not be the one in the render.

So the design of FT on the renders above isn't the final design or do you mean the other towers around the FT?
