3WFC is the Ra worshiping obelisk next to 1WTC

This might be referring to an old design:

Personally I don't like the view from this angle. Feels like Beekman kind of steals 1 WTC's thunder from that perspective. But 1 WTC will be almost completely covered up from that angle by tower 2 in the coming years, so it doesn't really matter anyway.

^Yes: Pre-order "Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero" DVD and once it's in your computer, take some screencaps and share them

If that was your point, what's the spire for in your previous post? I mean no harm. I thought it's all about jest.

3WFC is not an obelisk. If it is, I will eat my hat (when I get one...)

Those renders are amazing, Otie!

I love that model. It looks so massive; yet gentle.
