I'm sorry, I think it might be my comment I posted a few days ago. For some reason when I went to edit it, there was millions of letters and mixed up numbers and quotations and symbols, and I had no idea why. I tried to delete it, but for some reason it wouldn't let me delete it and I spent about 30 Minutes trying to delete it with no success, I hope it doesn't cause anymore problems.

Only high school. I didn't go to a university after I finished it cause I didn't know which proffesion to choose. But now I'm certain about that choice. In my time on this forum I became fascinated by buildings so much. Since I was a small kid I wasn't fascinated about anything as I am now about buildings. Being a structural engineer is now my dream

hahaha nice one.

Off-topic: Are there 4 or 5 the buildings from the WFC complex? I thought there were 4 but now I see there's a smaller one with very similar facade.

I made a minecraft render of the freedom tower, not an exact render but its close enough! lol here they are


The exterior base




The interior base (just the lobby)




What a person from the ground would see




The top floors, larger than others, and a red like to mark the progress.




Last is the top spire, cut off a bit cuz of map height restrictments..

Liberty Bridge will be preserved, in fact it will eventually receive an extension to Liberty Park (where the VSC is being constructed). Since it's crucial to link Battery Park City with the WTC District, the bridge needed to be preserved, several crosswalks will be created and an underground pedestrian concourse corridor will link BPC to the Hub. The other bridge located at the northwest corner of Tower One will be removed and crosswalks will be implemented instead.
