Nice updates!One of the most outstanding things about the building is that it looks very modern in that particular area.

That tower with Pyramid-shaped roof looks like One Canada Square in London
Gotham city looks stunning as always
Thanks for the updates Carlos

I like how the progress on the 1WTC is going and hopefuly 4WTC will make its way into the downtown skyline soon. However, as much as I like the design of the 2WTC (Lord Foster's tower), I have to admit that it will completely obscure any decent view of 1WTC from Brooklyn (especially from the Brooklyn Bridge), and the only good view of 1 WTC will be from the south, north and west. When the original Twin Towers were built, they were purposefully not unaligned with each other to avoid this issue. 2 WTC is almost equal in height to 1 WTC (a mere 18 foot difference, excluding 1WTC's spire) and will therefore block any view of 1WTC from an eastern vantage point. This is more than likely the reason why there are no official renders of 1WTC from the Brooklyn vantage point. If you don't believe me, go to the PANYNJ website and navigate to their Google Earth link. There you can bring up a render of the future WTC site from the eastern side and check this out. As it stands, I think it would be fine to leave 2 WTC as the retail stump its planned to be anyways, though I have no problem with Richard Roger's 3 WTC going up. Even though 3 WTC, has an admittedly inferior design to 2WTC, the tower is only 1,155 feet high.

Ugh, my bad. I thought every forum had these rules posted. Here they are: (taken from my forum ) http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1328871

It's super easy and keeps us in good standing with flickr.
