It looks like were getting two towers hovering around 1,370 feet give or take. Only difference is one has a spire that goes to 1,776, thats not twin enough for you? On top of that getting 2 more towers ranging 900-1,200. I think were better off.

Very true. WTC 1 and 2 will have probably the same prescence the original buildings had. And Im also excited to see in September what the smaller buildings look like.

I dont think 'small' is a good adjective describing the other 3, seeing that theyll be hovering around 1,000+ feet.

I just wish they built 2. And built them slightly taller than the old WTC. Just to make a statement.

I like that you called it One World Trade Center i think that should be the new official name of it instead of Freedom Tower.

They were outdated and there not coming back. I think this is a good replacement for them. I think manhattan needs a lot more glass and this will do it.

You are responsible, because the fact that you began with giving information about it. Not the fact how people see it for them self.

But, it doesn't matter! Because we don't even know if your 'renders' are good, and we only know the design in the follow month. But also i will thank you for the information of the high and other things

I like the World Trade Center name, it sounds more NYC style than Freedom Tower. This would be one of the best office complexes if not the best when finished.

What a stupid post. The original towers are never coming back and since that is a fact this is the next best thing and its what America is going to get.

1wtc will be the official name, freedom tower is merely a pathetic press name. Don't worry, I too want to sock pataki in the face every time I hear it... so do 22 million new yorkers.

Don't worry, you won't be seeing information from me in here anymore. I've moved on.

Freedom Tower isn't the official name at all? good i was never really too fond of the name.

Good job naming this thread then, cuz I think everyone here agrees
