I don't undervalue Americans, but forcing names like "freedom", "liberty", "patriotic" is stupid, poor and sarcastic.

STFU man. Really. We're here to discuss the architecture, construction status, and pictures of this building. If you want to go cry about how 'un'free America is go to the Skybar. This discussion about the use of Freedom to name the tower has been rehashed so many times. Please no more.

Freedom Tower is OK with me - but really it should be 1 WTC - jut for remembering original place. BUt really nothing wrong with this name.

Well not to mention the fact that the original Freedom Tower is in Miami, but the name of this beauty already stuck, and it is known like Freedom Tower around the world. Like it or not, it's how u recognize it, immediately

It was being called Freedom Tower and 1 WTC anyway, so why all the fuss?

As the title of this thread above reads; Freedom Tower and 1 WTC.

I'm not saying that you can't say that. Your just saying it in the wrong section of this forum. Remember you participate in a forum with RULES. So please be respectful and take your rants elsewhere.

I think it would be hard to rent out the whole building using the name World Trade Center knowing the images of 9/11. It's easy to say just call it the WTC but another to work at your job up on the 80th floor of the new WTC.

In eiter case, it's being called WTC or NWTC because, as everyone knows;

1. It is replacing the one which was destroyed.

2. It's being built in the same spot where the old one was.

3. All 10,000,000 sq. ft. of office space has to be put back there.

4. The chance of a 09-11-style attack like that happening again are probably a million to one odds.
