I love the pure geometric designs of the towers. I've had enough of bloated billowing organic shaped towers - the novelty of those are wearing off.

Check out the cam; there are a whole bunch of large cranes by the pit. I am not sure what they are doing.

I like the diamond-like tower. How fast can they bild those? I hope they are built before I visit NY.

i change my mind i think i am starting to like these towers, this picture shows you just how massive they really are. IMO the renderings look bad, they make the towers look short.

It's not



I agree the renderings often make the towers look shorter than they really are. Why? I don't know.

3 Of those towers will be damn near as high (Or as high) as the original WTC, and another 950 footer is not bad at all!


All four towers will be completed by 2012. For whoever asked.

Why? what's so bad at these towers. especially the 2nd is absolutley wonderful. This is NY not Dubai. most of the Buildings in NY are boxy so i think why should new buildings not be boxy? Can you imagine Rose tower or the Trump Tower for the Palm in NY?? ( Me not !!!)
