This building looks too short to me. The top is an unnatural end point, making it look stubby.

Perhaps it should have been bigger and without the spire?

Finally, the skyline is being restored. However 2 WTC is a must.

Wasn't that over the fact he wrote his posts in red?

Oasis, you need to give credit to the photographer by leaving at least a link, specially if it is hosted on Flickr. We had some trouble with the Flickr staff a few months ago and that was the last warning, all photos must be credited.

So, 1WTC is now the second tallest building to roof in NYC? Second only to ESB, correct?

That's because it's not there yet. It still has over 300 feet to go.

I think it should have had a pyramid on top, instead of a spire. That (in my opinion) would complete the design.

Sure, you're right about that! It is far better in almost every way. The cladding and slick facade are very refreshing to look at. This is actually the best building in that vicinity.

What a funny way to make jest of the building. It isn't built in Egypt, for that simple reason, pyramid is not necessarily needed.
