Whats Peace Tree like? My family wants to move there and in the pictures all they show is old people diving golf karts and these high schools kids getting off the bus that look very square.

Instead of that cluster of 300m+ towers around the FT, why not just give the FT a twin?

Everyone's thinking it, why don't they just do it.

That way everyone gets the twins back and you still get the office space.

The other thing, lose the spire, it looks ghastly, spires can look awesome but not on flat tops.

A spire that is 50m thick (i.e. not a spire, more of a tower-like figure but still a building w/ stuff in it). There is a 120m spire on top.
I obviously have no sense of humor.
Touche!
edit: I do realize its called Fordham Spire

I dont Mind The design as is, Yes, it needs a little touch up but im just happy that there actually rebuilding now after so long.. its like healing a scar on the country. lets just hope the bandaids are nice. i dont know if u guys have addressed this but, i remember a while back seeing that they were going to position the buildings so that every sept. 11th a shawdow of some sort would alluminate
the memorial.
is that still in the works or no?

Yes you are right that they finally begin to rebuild ground zero.But they should't build anything there it shoul be a new wonder of the world to honour those who died there.For example the tallest towers in the world!

The thing with the shadow was Daniel Libeskinds "wedge of light" idea and there should't be a shadow but a game of light.
it should work so.
at (8:48 am) as the first plain hit the northtower the light of the sun should hit the tower 2
at (9:03 am) as the second plain hit the south tower the light of the sun should hit the station
at at (10:04) am as the south tower collapsed the light shoul hit the memorial and the 11.September place
and at (10:28) am as the second tower collapsed the sunlight should move up to Freedom Towers peak.

I don't know exactly if it still work because the whole design changed and the buildings where deplaced so i think it don't works anymore.If someone knows it better please post and correct my mistakes to have the right information in the forum.

If it still works it would be fantastic to see it once live!!!!

I think the whole thing with the light during different times of the days died with the old version of Freedom Tower, but I could be wrong.

That still doesn't mean that you have the right to attack them for opposing it.

I prefer this design to twin towers. I like the design: have a supertall much taller than the twins, one about the size of the twins and and two more still really tall buildings but shorter than the twins. Why reconstruct what was there before, I think change is better... give a proper memorial, but put things behind and move one.

I never noticed the pics at the bottom of the first post. theyre new, and they look ****** great.

i read somewhere that the base is actually not going to look like a damn bunker. i forget where, but itll look different from the rest of the tower, just not 'bunkerish'.
