No pyramids as rooftops are ugly. I like the flat roof, with or without the spire.

I know, the most of you have said it already, but:

The One WTC looks ******* great in the Lower-Manhattan-Skyline.

I think, it's one of the most interesting and beautiful skyscraper-projects, that NY have ever seen. Congratulations to New York's Skyline. When all the new WTC's are built, it's the best skyline in the world.

Said already, but: I HAVE TO VISIT NEW YORK soon

I agree, it's not designed tall enough. They should have designed it to be about 2,000 feet tall.

Yes, the spire looks so oversized. So superfluous. I would find it better too, without spire.
The pyramide is a good idea.

No. Even though it could of been taller the design is perfect for new york. A huge pyriamid sticking out in the skyline looks stupid... Dont want to be like sand fran

SHhhh, don't call it an antenna four will be counted in the height! Even though it looks like an antenna it is a spire so it can be counted.

It's called spire, it's counted into the height and it has an antenna inside of the spire..

It looks nothing like an antenna, are you kidding? It looks like what it is - a spire.
