Interesting angle related to David Bergeland's article. Hosting and finding credited to Lofter1, on WiredNewYork.

I'm sure this building won't be the tallest in the city forever. I'll give it 10 to 15 years before something else comes along

Allright I thought that the deletion of over 25 posts this afternoon would've been sufficient. Apparently it's not and I just deleted another 20 posts. Please people, stay on topic. The reason that the Twin Towers are considered to be offtopic is because discussions about these towers always end up in fights and retarded arguments. Please don't troll and please don't respond to trolls. Thank you very much.

I've seen some great updates on this project, keep it up

I'll try to take some pictures of NYC on my way back from Scranton Pa. I doubt if I'll be able to but I won't hurt to try.
