The design you see in all of the official renders, for Freedom Tower, and all of the other towers, is not final; I'm not sure when an updated render will be released.

I don't get why they don't have Twins either,

If your going to construct 4 other buildings each around 1200 feet Why not have one of them that equals the Rooftop of the Freedom tower?

We will have the twins back and even that redesigned.

It looks like a gigantic monument with those 4 smaller (but still huge) scrapers surrounding Freedom Tower, each roof pointing towards it.´
The Freedom Tower itself could be bigger, but I really like the concept.

Yes that is what i like!!That would be great if they build something in this height range.

But they should keep the spiral concept by Daniel Libeskind.

N.Y.C build higher than expected!!!!!!!!!

I do not like this construction...

It is too modern and tall for NYC...I mean NYC has all old and sames syled buildings and now they are building this modern tall building that will outburst and destroy all the buildings beside it..I j ust don't think it is that nice for this city...For some modern cities yes but for NYC I don't know doesn't look natural...

Does NYC suddenly have to exbibit only short buildings from now on?

I don't think so!

We had the tallest, now we are going to get them back (and instead of two, we may wind up with five).

Way to go Osama and Family of the victims.
You guys destroyed our twins, we will get 'em back, more than double in density!

You can't have a city look like a museum with old stuff and nothing else. The whole thing about NYC is the variety of buildings of all the different styles of skyscrapers imaginable.

I can understand where you are coming from but i don't think the Freedom Tower will stick out like a saw thumb in the skyline. I think it's a good thing that modern skyscrapers are being built, what would be the point in building new skyscrapers that are similar in style to other buildings in New York, it would be completely unoriginal and be very boring. It's all about symbolising progress and bringing the city into a new era of well engineered and modern skyscrapers. You wouldn't want New York to be left behind would you?

I don't what it is about this design though, it just doesn't seem to have much character, it's lacking something. Is it a building that you New Yorkers out there will be proud of?

NYC 1,000: ESB, Chrysler, Freedom Tower, BOA, NYT, and the 3 other WTC towers, thats 8.

Chicago 1,000: Sears, Hancock, Trump, Aon, Waterview, AT&T, and maybe Fordham, that still has a long way. 6 maybe 7.

Don't throw a tantrum just yet, b/c it might just end by September if the NJ side doesn't make a full agreement.

I highly doubt that that's Freedom Tower steel. I wonder what they're doing and where that came from, and also why.

New York Times is a cheap one tho and BOA is sort of.

That would be very powerful, being from Detroit i can tell you the Rencen is very immpressive you just have to look at it you can tell its some huge company, something sort of like the what future citys look like in the movies with a huge tower dwarfing the rest, it gets your point across.
