Thank you very much!! Nice diagram.

The new WTC will be great, but man o man how awesome it would be if WTC1 and WTC 2 each had another 150 feet on them!!! Then the new WTC would truly surpas the old WTC in every respect!

I'm not all about height for height's sake but I would have loved to have seen them build twin versions of the new WTC 2.

Wow...13 buildings (past and present) associated with the World Trade Center complex. 14 if 130 Liberty Street gets approved. That's impressive, yet depressing at the same time.

any of u guys looked at wtcprogress.com ? the vids on there are great, just shows u how much work is going into this massive complex!

At first i didn't like this new design wanted the twin towers back like everybody and their mother! i would still really like twin building's back to have that national symbol bk , but this new design is starting to grow on me alot. the wtc b4 was just about the twin towers where as now the wtc is a whole complex! all state of the art! im sure it will look great when done check this vid out http://www.brookfieldofficepropertie...ion-20116.html

^Woah! That animation was incredible! Although it made it seem as if they'd do each building one at a time as opposed to all of them coming up more or less together. Or at least 1 and 4 together and 2 and 3 together... But its still impressive nontheless

And imagine if the roof was 1776ft rather than the spire... one can imagine.

Indeed, that's why my photos are not just of the building but trying to give it scale as well. It is all ready massive, no pan am building but not to far off either.

I will try to get some shots from other angles next time too.

Hi there. Love this thread!

Freedom Tower looks amazing. It's just a shame they didn't decide to design a second similar tower like the south tower. Really not liking the other buildings. Still maybe over time I will.

Thanks for the work in this thread guys!

Ok try this again, On google earth earlier looking at the new wtc and looking from that iconic spot where most photographer's take them great pic's of nyc from under brooklyn bridge and 2WTC GETS IN THE WAY Of 1WTC ! ! !
So u can't even see the freedom tower from that once always great shot of the skyline with the twins towers in.
