hm dont know what to say, as much as I want the memorial center and everything around it to be rebuild, it just doesnt seem like a WTC. The towers look like individual business towers not like a united complex. Hm I dunno, am like 50/50 on this, damn why wouldn't they just add two FT's and then it would be much better.

I don't think they look bad. Of course there is some disappointement...they were a bit overhyped on this board with people saying stuff like "thursday will be the most significant day in sky scraper history" and so forth the last few days. But I think these are about as good as one might hope for. I wasn't disappointed.

For such a 'holy ground' these are really bland and could be anywhere in the world. It all seems a bit 'business as usual'. But then maybe that's the point?

heh, when they said 4 "independently" designed towers I didnt expect them to look alike (well, except for WTC2 possible twinning) but yeah, theyre independently designed, so yeah. They should look different

and whats this "Its better in London" crap? its so random!

I'm hearing a lot of people say "London" but the first thing I thought when I saw it was "CHICAGO."

I agree, I don't think it would suit anywhere better. I personally think they are excellent, and work well together.

looking at the new night piccies, I also dont see how 2 and 3 are hogging the attention from 1. IMO, 1 is still in command by a pretty good margin.

To all the naysayers what are you expecting? You want crazy shapes a la Shanghai? No. You want flat-topped boxes? No. You want all the towers to look the same? No that's too monolithic. You want them all different? No it looses the WTC complex feel.

So to all the naysayers, what is it you want?

Well, now you're getting one tower as tall as the twins, another tower almost as tall as the twins, then 2 more towers, one over 1000ft and one just under.
