Once again, does 7 WTC not count? It's right next to that building, and it's much taller. What are you talking about?

EDIT: Oh, I guess you mean in front of the direct space where 1 WTC is now. Well, okay, I guess.

Lol, I think it's because you usually see the NY skyline by itself in the most iconic photos. HK is frequently portrayed with 2 skylines divided by a body of water like in that photo.

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
That's actually a very nice essay I would even go as far as to say that 1WTC looks better without 2WTC and 3WTC. I never liked Libeskind's spiral site plan. In my opinion it looks too shy. Alone 1WTC is more dominating the skyline as the Twins did, which in my opinion is far better than what Libeskind designed

Why? Also to stay on topic, I can't wait for more steel. And base cladding. Hope that comes very soon.

I think by mid to late january of 2012 they should have cladding up to the octagon mark.

I have always wonder why they havent added clading to the base. They covered it with this black covering and I expect it to have cladding after finishing.

They want 1 WTC to be unique. Having an uncladded concrete bunker base with partial scaffolding is a very cutting-edge approach, and it's sure to attract attention and praise from New Yorkers and tourists alike for many years to come.
