So if that is the case then the pace of one floor per week there is a real possibility of 1 wtc topping out by the end of this year weather permitting.

Nevertheless, twin towers would have been much better! Cannot understand why they didn't build twins again...
The twin towers were such a landmark for New York and its characteristic for the city...

Yeah, that does look bad. If they were to do twins they would have to be in the middle with the other towers flanking them. Not going to happen. Lets just hope they get WTC 2 up quickly. It will look bad with just WTC1 as a supertall there.

well in the movie 'click' i found it that the twin freedom towers didn't look that bad, but, no, it would be a cheap copy of the 'twins', for my eyes it looks perfect like this once WTC2 is finished..i am sorry to say that but WTC3 & WTC4 will definitly stay in the shadow of 1 + 2. i don't know which one i like more, 1 or 2 and when i'm there on the finished site, i think break my neck while i can't decide from which tower i take pictures

Beekman Place, Goldman Sachs and WFC all look awesome, Lower Manhattan has so many of my favourite towers gathered in one place, it is beautiful. Another couple of years and the four WTC towers will join the club and make the LM skyline even more breathtaking.

I think the design is perfect as is. I would of gone for a height increase though, 1wtc roof at 1776 and spire at 2001 with 2wtc roof at 1776 and spire at 1787(year constitution was signed) and 3wtc at 1607 (year Jamestown was inhabited) but oh well

cool ideas, I'm sure SOM & RSH, the architects of 1 & 2 thought about something like that. I'm guessing they were thinking it would be too high if they went with those dates.

Tower 1 is maybe the only tower to feature sensitive numbers... the purpose for all towers is to primarly recover the office space lost, and since economics aren't doing well, extra office space isn't the best option.
