This thread is seriously one flawed, uneducated argument against another, over and over again. Contribute or shut up, PLEASE.

Might be. But I think they should let the building grow until it has reached without spire the 500 Metres, and after this, they can think about a 50 metres high spire, but a 120 metres high one is just oversized. This one is not made for a Skyscraper, its made for a telecommunication-tower, you now what i mean

I don't come from NY, so I think i may ask this question: Which tower is the one next to the OWTC? In the right side of picture, between One WTC and Woolworth Building(?)?
Beautiful pics, by the way.

Yeah, that would be nice but unfortunately it is now impossible. Once the foundations are made it is impossible to add height to a building cause a taller building needs bigger foundations

It's not impossible..You can add more height..Buildings are never calculated to the maximum..But as much as you add, that much is taken from the strength of the building..There are rules and laws you have to take care of in case you want to add something up..Also, you can't add 100 more floors or something like that..

Nr.1: Yeah, I know. Unfortunately, unfortunately. However, things are happening and nobody can change this now. Nevertheless I think, it's going to get a wonderful skyscraper, with, or without spire.

Nr.2: Thank you, I've supposed that.

There was no jest. I'm not sure what your point is, the building is already 8 pyramids.

I think so too. I'm sure, there are going to come a lot of new angles in the future. NY is a big city, and the One World Trade Center a high building....

(Maybe, there's someone cheeky, climbs up the Brooklyn-Bridge and takes some photos )

Great Building!

This isn't ancient Egypt.

You've already got your Ra worshiping obelisk right in the middle of Washington D.C.
