it would of bin awesome if they built twin towers to represent and pay tribute to the former tho, dont you guys agree?

Not that I'm complaining, this project looks better each time i look at it. But it would of bin cool.

Twin Towers would be insulting.

'Lets build twin towers to totally act as though 9/11 never happened. Nevermind the 2,000 + people who died.'

Going by that logic, the mere fact that they are building anything on that site is insulting to all those who died there.

I like the Freedom Tower, but I liked the older 'twisting' design better. Still, at least something is going to fill the gaping hole in the lower Manhattan skyline.

^ Building something new is a way to say that we've moved on. Rebuilding the twins as they were is saying that we're sweeping it under the rug and basically say that it never happened.

And the bird cage was a giant cluster****.


Oh..and here is a cool pic of the evolution of the Freedom Tower:

The original proposal was retarded.

Who on earth was advocating rebuilding the original WTC? I certainly wasn't. And HWDP was merely suggesting building two new twin buildings, not rebuilding the exact same twin towers as before.

I still like the older design for the Freedom Tower. It was unique and more symbolic. I'm not foaming at the mouth that they didn't build it though. I do like the one they went with, but it wasn't my favorite.

Since the footprints of the original towers are still exposed it would be cool if they built the current design and then build 2500 foot replicas of the original WTC on the foot print of the old towers. New York ain't New York without those twin towers in Lower Manhattan.

I never said you.

FM 2258: The footprints of Ground Zero is hallowed earth. You don't touch it.

People need to understand that any sort of twin towers will NOT BE BUILT. After all the delays and design changes, the Freedom Tower is under construction. Why can't anyone be satisfied?

I'm not saying they should of rebuilt the twin towers exactly how they were to act as though 9/11 never happened.

I'm saying it would of bin cool if they kept the SAME NEW DESIGN they have now for the freedom tower and made 2 of them to symbolize the old WTC.

I think thats more of a nice thing than to forget about the old twin towers and just build something completely different. Twins would of paid tribute to the old towers and would of reminded people of the old towers and made them remember the old towers


Those twin towers WERE new york, it made the skyline different. with all different buildings the skyline wont be as interesting imo it wont stand out as much. The twins brought the whole skyline up


I still like the Freedom Tower, and the project looks good. Its just thats what my preference would have been.

Interesting to see how the design of Freedom Tower evoluted. I wish Freedom Tower rooftop would be tall as August 2003 design with spires on it. That would look very taller.

Is it neccessary to have such a massive Base, consisting of concrete and steel?? Y do they have that? Fear of attacks?

Yeah, to show that it is defiant.

Oh, not STILL pages about which design this, or which design that? Everything HAS been said over & over & over & over for the last 4 years. See this thread in a couple of months.

Thanks Carlitos for updates.

I agree with this. I like the idea of #1 being 1776, #2 & #3 being twins, and do whatever with #4.

I think it would have been a tribute and an honor to the twins that fell.

That all said, at least they're rebuilding, and the 1776 is a nice touch.

i think they should build the roof hight to 1776 and a spire or something to 2001ft. i would like that better.
