69 floors only?? Ouch..

Maybe some of the other WTC buildings that are going up may have as many floors as this one?

That's all old, but I wish Foster's Kissing Towers could be built else where, like, lets say, on Staten Island.


For the Freedom Tower, there are 70 office floors that can be rented (about a quarter of it is already leased), 20 floors (some are skipped, but what can you do, eh?) in the base that are used for security/mech reasons, around 10 mech floors, a few broadcasting floors, an observation floor, floors for the restaurant, a sky lobby flor, and other stuff too. In total, the PANYNJ counts the top floor as floor 108, which is one floor more than the highest floor people could go to on the Twin Towers.


I'm ready for Tal to bash the hell outta what I just said. Bring it on, buddy!

The total floor count is still 108. Every building has a lot of mech floors, and this one needs a lot of extra stuff for security reasons.

There is no doubt that the observation floor is floor #102. There are floors on top of the observation floor. The elevators in the Freedom Tower will read: 100, 101, 102 when you want to go to the observation floor. After all, it is a 1,300++ foor tall monster. The spire may be big enough to go into.

BrooklynNYC, are you crazy calling Foster's Kising Towers "horrific?" That's the best skyscraer design I've seen in my life. I hope you're kidding. If not, go jump off the the Freedom Tower when it's topped in a few years.

And everyone else, WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING!?!?! The final design has been here for at least five years. All of those designs lost. That crud shouldn't even be here.
