woah! now this is a mega-project!
congrats to all NYers!

and to all those dummies that think Dubai is somehow even close to NY's greatness, just **** off, there's nothing like NY.
Dubai's skyscrapers are just a bloof, they're standing over oil and built in poor conditions by very cheap workers with no rights (aka modern slavery).

It will be unveiled to the whole world.
I'll reserve my excitement until I see what they look like.

youll see a whole new downtown in 5 years. theres many many MANY other projects going on besides the WTC redevelopment as well. downtown manhattan will have a respectable skyline in itself, maybe even better than all of midtown in 5 years. we'll see how NYTimes, BOA, and Con Ed turn out.

why didn't they just make it the world's tallest building? i am guessing that that is too much to ask, but seriously, that would be badass....we would once again have the tallest skyscraper in the world....it deserves to be in America (yeah, i am patriotic and nationalistic...so what?)

because its a.)tall enough, b.)if you build a 1.2km tower in NY some Sheikh in the mid-east will build a 1201-m tower. its pointless. Anyway, 1WTC need to blend in the skyline like the old WTC did, and i'm thinking this new WTC will too.
