There were no bombs in the building. Another myth that people seem to think is true.

Oh please don't start another discussion about those conspiracy theories. Now they're building the freedom tower, we should focus on that!

I think what they are building now is the best way to deal with what happened on that side. Four impressive new towers and a memory site for what once stood. I like the buildings very much, especcialy tower 2 and 3. They can stand for their own.

We don't know that with 100% certainty.

But, I do agree that this isn't the place for the conspiracy theory discussion.

Another stupid internet-brainwashed conspiracist. Educate yourself and use logic; look at the thousands of engineers/organizations who said there is no evidence of conspiracy whatsoever vs. the the few actors, the few engineers, politicians, who agree with it.

Right, instead of 2 very large towers, we get 4 large and 1 medium sized tower (not including 7 WTC). But we also get a reconnection to the Manhattan streetgrid. That's important to the pedestrian flow of the city.

I did not know Norman Foster designed WTC2. I love both of the towers.
