Freedom Tower really doesn't sound too nice,its as if there is a lack of freedom in the States.....or deprive....1 World Trade sound much better. I agree with Don, since its going to cost so much, why dont build something thats really cool, outstanding, I am sure America can do better ............take away the "toothpick" at the top...

Freedom Tower is a stupid name. I agree.

Because others think that is outstanding. So I guess nobody thinks the same. I don't think it is outstanding, but I think it looks fine. It doesn't bother me at all. Also if you are going to make the building look more interesting (whatever that could be) the price will go up again.

I do think the design is great ,one of the best in the world (just wait till you stand in front of it when its finished).
but freedom tower isn't the best of names I agree .

If so the others will remain the same and be built and freedom tower will be redisigned as they are built. Correct?

It doesn't mean anything. That was all opinion. There will be no delays. In a year or so from now, all 5 skyscrapers will be being built at the same time, plus the GS Tower. The current plan is concrete. The only real poblems are 130 Liberty Street being taken down and that stupid Staircase blocking Tower 2.

Is this tower really only going to have 69 floors? Or am I missing something here? It just seems like something is not right when the FT is supposed to be the same height (to the roof) as the old WTC, yet have 41 fewer floors. If this is the case, then they really need to reconsider certain aspects of the design. That's my opinion.

From what I understand, the windowless base is counted as 20 floors. 82 floors will be on top of that with the observation floor being the highest, and a few more mech and broadcasting floors will be on top of the observation floor.

Couldn't the dismantling of the Deutsche Bank Building also be a problem?
