That was defensive at it's highest in this thread. No need to hope, this is it. I also did not agknowledge the loss of some very fine people to have you retort with your own tale of loss.
I would never say "I lost some friends but hey i still wanna see a great tower." Two totally different touchy topics that don't exactly coexist. If this discussion was about a memorial then I could see referring to " I lost friends as well" These are buildings, thats about it.

ok nygrrrrrrl, if these are just buildings,nothing more, why all of the controversy and rancor? i say it's because of the EMOTIONAL connection people feel toward the site. what was there, what happened there, and what will eventually rise there. don't you think the towers that get built will forever be linked to 9/11? they will for me, but as you so astutely pointed out, they will last longer than i.

Lol you are in a skyscraper site for skyscraper enthusiasts aside from here you won't get much more of an opinion other than build it! Don't forget where you are at. Now kindly climb off my tits and keep crying about the renders..

Lol you guys are nutts! Yeah, wait a sec! Your right it looks horrible we should scrape it and just go with Libeskanks needle and crystal 700 footers right? No wait lets build outdated styles that's much more plausible, maybe nothing at all then? My point exactly... nothing satisfies the boneheads.

I really hope the base stays on Rogers' tower. It's really nice. Anyone have any idea what the entrance to Maki's tower will look like?

Fantastic conglomeration of towers. 4 towers above 950 feet a stones throw away from each other? And people still complain?

I'm a life long New Yorker and I'll be proud when these new buildings stand completed.

Debate what? It's pointless to debate this one side gets what they want, the other doesn't. To debate that is equivalent to beating a dead horse to see it bleed.

When I first looked at it I thought tower 2 was 3, 4, 5 combined haha I was really worried there for a sec.

I like three the best, very solid looking design. Two im still not sure about, reminds me of the Citicorp building, because of the slanted roof, but split into four sections. Four is alright.

Overall im not totally thrilled with the designs, I thought they would be closer together and have a more dense, massive appearance. Im sure my opinion will change as more renders are created and the designs are tweaked.

i don't see any piles being driven, any concrete being poured. until that day,2,3,4,etc. are still up for debate. it's not like anything we're saying here actually influences anything. some people just like to vent their opinions. i'm sure you can relate.......:-P

Nothing we say here matters, some people like to voice their opinions and some people like to voice their opinions of others, same shit? Regaurdless of 2,3,4 etc. There's more a chance of them, then the 2 towers you want.
Done.
