there wont be too much. i doubt 2 will change at all seeing as its at the iconic height to somewhat replicate the former wtc height. 3 might go through more height changes like it did already depending on market.

Hello from me! I was in NY in 2010 and I have a couple of shots of both 1WTC and 4WTC, but the construction stage in those pics looks like it was ages ago, so there is no need for them now! I also had the helicopter tour around the site and boy....how has it changed over 1 year...

What a progress since then! I am actually waiting for the tower to top out before I visit New York again! An amazing city with an amazing new jewel as its new beacon!

Love New York and love this beautiful tower and complex!

Well, the iconic height is one possible change. They might increase the height of 2WTC to 415 meters / 1362 feet so it's the same as the old South Tower

I think its unlikely there will be any changes. Unless they decide to put a spire on just to annoy you.

What's more likely to happen is a decrease in height, not a increase.

This kind of post is obnoxious, especially considering no new pictures have been posted. Lighten up

I think 'Freedom tower' is a silly name.

Wikipedia says 1 WTC has steel columns going up for floors 83-84. Is this true?
