Hopefully this time next year, we'll be looking up at the Freedom Tower soaring above Lower Manhattan


BOA looks great by the way

Nice. The more it has glass on it, the better. It always looks better and more modern if it's not only a boxy concrete building. Can't wait to see that finished.
I never thought it was that tall. It looks smaller in the renderings. Over 360 meters high... Cool!

Can't stand the bank, but truly love that building! The pedestrian area inside will be a spectacular addition to the Times Square district as well.

There's still a lot of glass to go, even way past the top floorplate as we know.

Stunning Carlito. Don't think I've seen it from that angle before.

Superb pic finds too CULWULLA

This building was just on the Discovery Channel. It sure would be nice if every single skyscraper in the world was as green as this one is going to be.
