Looks short and fat! Damn you, Silverstein! It would look perfect if it was much taller, but, as you said, it's far from final, if it even looks like that. Break into the 25th floor of Seven World Trade Center? Hell, I'm all for it.

Something like 1,100 feet tall to 1,150 feet tall, but it should be higher.

Dear Superior, The true embarrasment is that with each passsing day that hole in New York sits empty, terrorists look more effective and New York looks more feeble. A handful of New Yorkers have spent more time squabbling over designs and who will pay the cost of rebuilding than the people of Oklahoma City and Washington DC (of which I am one) have spent mouring, memorializing, rebuilding and moving on.

Instead of nursing your victimization complex by praising a half a billion dollar memorial, why don't you ask the foundation to size it down and spend money on bomb detectors for ports or security for subways and tunnels. I'm sure the survivors would appreciate that much more especially if it prevents another tragedy necessitating another half a billion dollar memorial.

The moment we've been waiting for so many years is finally here... structural steel is visible.

The freedom tower design is lame.Totally lame!

I agree with Donald Trump.They should build new towers virtually the same as the orginals but only taller.

New York needs those twin towers to anchor the downtown.

Imagine if the Opera House in Sydney,or the Eifel Tower in Paris were knocked down and they put something esle there to replace it.It just wouldnt happen.They would build it just like it was before.

In the case of the twin towers they were skyscrapers.Building them a second time but only taller will restore the area to its original glory and give New Yorkers a new era of confidence.

I pity the Freedom tower. I really do think its a cool looking scraper, but everyone expects too much out of it. Well, at least construction has started.

While the Freedom Tower design may be lame, the Twin Towers were lamer in terms of design.

The waterfall looks good the problem with rebuilding the old towers is that they are out dated and there style is old. We have to build a building that will look good throughout the 21st century not one that was built during the 70's.
