I saw it and it didn't look to good. It seemed way too crowded. But I bet you itll look better in real life. It looked so modern though. A different kind of feel.

I would like to see a spire that tapers from the top floor, instead of the glowing toothpick. It shouldn't count or be called a spire, it is an antenna and a ugly one at that.

The spire is still being designed.

NEW YORK - The architect of the Freedom Tower has advice for those who might not like the design: give it some time. "It will be something that will grow on people," David Childs said.

Surprising!, The footprint is rather small!, just about same size as all each of those WFC..

He doesn't need to please me or everyone with the design. Most of all people are looking for a building, ANY BUILDING, to rise up and fill in ground zero to help bring closure.

Yes, they are being built on top of the old complex, except for the footprints of the Twin Towers.

Yes. I am not completely sure, I got them off Google Images, they might be different designs by the same person.
