I just found this out, so for those of you who don't know.. this will be the tallest office-only building in the world when completed.

1 WTC is by far the most beautyfull skyscraper under construction. I can't understand why so many people don't like it. In my opinion it's simply awesome.

Though this would be even far more awesome:

I totally agree, replacing the twins with a single building doesn't feel right. But of course the truth is they are, essentially, replacing the twins with four pretty tall buildings, but they are not TWINS, nonetheless. What if both buildings had an ugly spire

It's now taller than the WFC building in front of it.
