Osama is a symbol more than a man unfortunately, and it's not something you can destroy by just death, it has to be turned against itself.

The Twin Towers rebuilt; but with (obviously) a far better design and perhaps somewhat taller

The Twin Towers II plan will be built in Jersey City, New Jersey. New Jersey has grabbed the glory. New York has failed to truelly rebuild what was destroyed

where did you get this information? are there any proposals, serious plans? or is this just a long term vision for 2050? anyway, if they build the towers in jersey city it will be great for NYC too, because the two skylines work perfectly together.

This is false. Why do you keep lying to everyone on this forum?

I'm reporting you.

If this was 2003, I'd say rebuild the twins. But I think too much time has passed for a rebuild to be an effective statement against the terrorists.

Twin towers were really cool buildings, but let's be honest with ourselves those towers don't exist anymore, so it's time to move on with something new and more symbolic. I'd rather the Freedom Tower by far...

I am not lying,Uaarkson, you will see in late June, You dont even know half about the TTII, the TTII are just building just like the FT. SO what if they are built in Jersey City, You can say it is false, but you dont know much as I do!

In Fact, I should even bother, We are arguing over mere objects. Its the lives of those that were lost that really matter, not meaningless buildings. The Freedom Tower and the Twin Towers II are just buildings, so what if they are built. It doesn't matter. We have to accept and move on regardless.

I'd say Freedom Tower. It has a nice design, and some of its features even resemble those of the old Twin Towers. It is very modern, and represents a shift in the architecture of New York City. And as for TT2 being built in New Jersey, just no. They Twin Towers were not just mere objects, they were icons of New York. Just like what Freedom Tower will be. An icon. Building them in New Jersey would just be idiotic. Either have them in New York or not at all.

I hated the old WTC but I think it would've been cool to rebuild them.

It's August 2nd buddy, where are the plans? Are they digging? Piling? Perhaps the TTII are invisible and won't be made public until they're completed? I'll be keeping my eye on Jersey City for the day when they are 'built.'

A re-designed WTC would be great, but I'd prefer both be built just for the sake of it. WTC 2 showcasing nothing to bring us down, and Freedom Tower (OWTC) showcasing the future pride and strength of this nation (it does look sort of futuristic, in my opinion). Double whammy.

I doubt there will be a second Freedom T built... though that's what I would want and a whole lot of people, but the part of Manhattan doesn't need the office space. Even when WTC opened in 1974(?) there was no immediate need for all that space, and there won't be now because many of the financial businesses relocated to cheaper real-estate around the city, in low profile older buildings; or they relocated upstate (also cheaper- by a LOT). If the demand presents itself, a second tower might be considered but that could be decades. I believe there's already some fear that businesses will be hesitant to take space in this building, due to the rent; and even the worry about being a 'target'. The insurance will certainly be sky high. So, for sentimental reasons we want two towers, but financial ones dictate 1. I'm not fond of the design, it's trying to look futuristic and kitschy. The very cubic old buildings were just grand to me.
