Its awesome! (but not as awesome as WTC1) Wtc1 its coming along great. Im most looking forward to seeing how it looks at night without all those super bright construction lights on and with just your average flourescents or L.E.D's.

I hope they will lit up the silverish edges in whti, with the usual office lightings inbetween. A slightly blueish light for the communication ring, and indirect light for the spire. With the N being morsed at the spires tip.

I went to the site for the first time in two months today.

The closer WTC gets to completion the more I am convinced of something - we need WTC2 and WTC3 for this to work.

On it's own WTC 1 just doesn't look right and doesn't cut it. It is too small and looks lonely. I think the only way it looks decent is with all the other towers there and the transportation center too.

I think the WTC was designed as a complex and won't look right until the entire complex is complete.

So at this point I think I am going to start focusing on WTC 2 and 3 more than WTC 1. I hope they don't get delayed too much.

That's exactly what I meant. I think I said it two sites ago.
That's why I agree with you

It wouldn't be standing completely alone, because 4 WTC is on its way to the top. But I think 1 WTC standing without Towers 2 and 3 would probably serve to better emphasize its dominance on the skyline (and 1 WTC is far from being "too small"). I've never liked the size and positioning of 2 WTC; either it should be much shorter, or it should have been switched with the transportation hub so that it wouldn't directly block the view of 1 WTC from the Brooklyn Bridge. I think I've argued about this about a dozen or so times here. I don't think we would have liked if buildings of similar height to the Twins were built around them, had they still been here today. That wouldn't have looked right. I think 1 WTC has the ability to stand without those other 2 towers if need be.

Sorry for the essay

I agree with you on this.

That last photo reminds me of HK. ICC on the right and IFC on the left.
