Beautiful tower.

Truly an architectural marvel, is a gem and will be an icon, it will never be the same were the twin towers, which in my opinion maybe should have been rebuilt with more modern systems but outwardly look the same.

Anyway, the new WTC will be very modern and impressive, especially this one tower.

I've always liked the two-spire look. It would seem, however, like they were copying Chicago's buildings. But done with a NYC flair, and it could look cool, and original.

Please tell me that the conversation of two spires is just personal preference and not an actual decision by the architect?

Maybe someone can make a render so we can proof it
