I don't know about the rest of you but I'm sick of all of the yapping about the necessity of having twin buildings just because the buildings we tragically lost happened to be twin buildings. The new designs are beautiful in my opinion and the contrast between them are modern and interesting architecturally. It's too late to redesign everything, this is what we're building, and it's going to be something that New Yorkers as well as the rest of us can be proud of. http://duan.ca/6i

Nothing's wrong. I just asked because you don't really seem to comment when you post them. ^^; It's a beautiful photo.
I apologize for the confusion.

@Otie: Do you have a new diagram made?
I'd love to make a diagram for you folks but atm I'm still out of the loop as to what floor are we now at. Are we now at floor 88 or still 86?

Now I'm starting to be puzzled at the slowdown in the steel progress these days. The weather's been relatively clear and not really windy. Though today I saw they had raised most of the curtain wall, so maybe we'll see something new in the coming days.

I was thinking about symbolic heights like 1 WTC at 1776 ft., and I had an idea about building a tower called the "Columbus Tower". It could be 1492 feet tall.

Someone should also build a Millennium Tower at 1,000 feet.
