All they did was reiterate Condé Nast as the primary tenant of the building. Rather anticlimactic based on the title of the announcement.

Yes the Tower had a slow start, but is rising very fast now.

See, look at that! Amazing! So much more impressive than just the one tower! That's why I wish they'd built the twin towers right back!
IMO, they would look better if they were different heights.

PORT AUTHORITY AND CONDÉ NAST SIGN 1 MILLION SQUARE FOOT LEASE FOR PUBLISHING GIANT TO ANCHOR ONE WTC
Date: May 25, 2011
Press Release Number: 28

Condé Nast – one of the world's leading publishing and media companies – today signed a lease with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to occupy one-third of One World Trade Center, soon to be the nation's tallest building.

The lease signing, which is the largest in Lower Manhattan in more than 25 years, validates the turnaround at the World Trade Center site and signals to the market that the new World Trade Center is fast becoming the first address in New York for premier corporate tenants. It also represents a boon for Downtown as Condé Nast's move to Times Square in 1999 triggered a renaissance of that neighborhood, driving an explosion of high-end retail and commercial development.

Absolutely. It would've been visibly more impressive, but also would make a bolder statement - "You knocked them down, f*ckers? Well we'll just build them right back stronger and more beautiful than before!"

I think I'd like them better the same height - like the original twin babygirls. Anyway, there's nothing we can do about it now. =O)
