Big fan of #2 in the dark... not as much in the light. But dark is awesome.

Sorry, I would have to disagree with the majority. I think it is an ugly group of buildings. I would say it doesn't really look like a memorial to the Trade Center towers and building 9. It looks like they want the buildings to say "Hey everybody, look at me, I want attention, don't I look futuristic? Even though it looks like a 9 yr old can build me. Hello"

Your New York envy is amusing. Pathetic but amusing.

I think the new designs look nice but they don't seem to work together. It would be nice if the design for #2 was used for the shorter two as well. There doesn't seem to be any focus point at all. Instead, we have a WTC with buildings that fighting each other for attention.

After 5 years, we finally get a massive superblock set of super-towers and the last thing I need to hear is a jealous little man, ranting about his thoughts.

thats not next to, its down the street. And quite honestly i like all of them(even though im starting to get tired of so much glass). Its better than a hole in the ground and the breaking up of the superblock is a great idea. I hate superblocks. But good job new york, cant wait to see it all.

But i saw a render somewhere and if you look in the river it looks like 2 sets of twin towers. Its gonna be beatiful.

I know where it is. I work next door to St. Paul's and used to live a few blocks away.

It look great guys, good idea of leaving space for a memorial for the victims. I like WTC1 and WTC2 they look pretty groovy. The Freedom Tower is grand! New York City's skyline is going to look even better now. Thanks for the update guys. Cheers!!!

I dont mind 4 which seems to be the least favourite on these forums, personally i think 3 is the one that doesn't fit in with the rest, its a beautiful tower, but doesn't fit with the buildings its surrounded by.

Tower 2 looks the best to me. Can't helping thinking though as there are four major skyscrapers there, maybe two sets of twins should be made instead......one set the height of Tower 1 and the second set the height of Towe 3. That would look pretty cool too me!
