well of course, I like the who concept of building futuristic glass facade buildings but I just think it would be cool if there were two FT's, even if they wanted to rebuild the original twins I think it would be better if they where in like the burj dubai facade glass so its modern .

It's hard to keep the record for the tallest building, I mean burj dubai has it now, but its not gonna last forever. I am pretty sure NYC will once again hold the record for tallest building, time will tell.

Wow, the renders do these things no justice regarding height, but after seeing these models and pictures these buildings are monsters, holy shit. You can see the true height, I love it. You can also see Goldman Sachs HQ completed on the right as well. The tall/thick building behind the WFC, which is currently u/c. There is alot more going on downtown, Gehrys new 850+' tower will add tremendously as well. Downtown can rival any ****** skyline in the world.

I dont think NYC will get the WTB title again anytime soon. Its not economically practical. NYC doesnt even need it, let other cities top each other over and over again, no one will match New Yorks history with skyscrapers.

Would you rather have the old twin towers or this? I much rather have this, I think its better to move on from what was there.
