i think we can all agree on the new complex looking way better than the old from that angle. other angles, maybe not too much; debatable!

Thanks for the height compare diagram. I really love them so please keep doing them.

But there would be one nice addition to them - could you put the Empire State Building on them? I think most New Yorkers reference things against the ESB these days so it would be great to see how WTC 1 and WTC 4 compare to it right now.

Here is a small SSP comparison diagram. I cut the building to the current maximum height of it's steel. I hope you'll find it helpfull:

I like this UFO-cricle at the top, shortly before the spire rises up to the sky.
I hope, the building structure doesn't change silent and secret, you know what I mean. Out of public. Please One WTC, stay how you are, you're perfect at the moment. And the renderings are perfect, too. Let's hope, the building isn't going to get a flop. This would be a horror! But I'm an optimistic, and I think, it won't change. But who knows that?

Very good looking pics, btw.

Since they are already constructing it the building will not change. However, the spire and the ring might

Yes, of course, but they haven't reached the end hight yet, and I hope, they don't form the top to a square, because if that happens, the One WTC loses it's individuality.
The One World Trade Center, which is already built, stays of course like it is. But I'm worried about the spire, and the roof area. There is still enough place and freedom for new ideas.

But already said: I'm optimistic

I wonder how the blue safety cocoon is going to fit the vertical steel after the office floors are completed and they start the mechanical floors?

Here's a Twin Tower movie montage, compiling the buildings' film cameos from 1969 to 2001



Although it's very good, seems like the guy that made that didn't have childhood since he didn't include Santa's attempted super duper looper at the WTC. Well, here it is:

Try reading next time.
1776 is a misplaced bit of "patriotism" as a height. 2001 feet 9.11 inches has more to do with where & why the building exists than when the us was founded, in fact the dutch had a colony there hundreds of years ago...

Just saying.

I didn't say the 1776 ft. height wasn't bullshit, I was just saying that your idea is worse.
