As someone else pointed out, the numbers below can't be correct. Perhaps gross floor area figures for the new buildings are being compared to rentable floor area figures for the twins? Anyone have the correct, apples-to-apples comparisons?

Guys just notice that you are those who repeat theirs opinion over and over. I see mostly random people coming here to express negative opinion for the first time which btw shows something. Although I agree it's getting a bit annoying, but I understand they want to express it.

Yeah obviously as new wtc is tapering building which takes a lot of space. Original towers were 400'000sqm each so the whole complex had just little less space than the new one even though buildings in old complex were much lower.

I don't get all the hate. It doesn't look THAT different. To the naked eye it won't matter. The original spire looked like a joint anyways. I never liked it.

Glad you noticed. They're the ones making a fuss about everyone else's right to complain, about this catastrophic chane in such an important project. We were promised something we didn't get, and this in the last months of the project, and with something that was a key feature of the tower, and with a tower that is of NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE to the U.S. and to many people around the world.

Many people are just finding out, and they pass by this forum to post their opinion. Why should you censor them? It seems you only value your own opinion, and no other ones, by the way you have been acting. (Not you, patrykus, btw )

The original spire was thicker and more visually appealing, it was white, with a geometrically-intricate cover, that became thicker and thinner as it reached higher into the sky. It also marked the "1776" point.

The spire also had a nice ring around it that kind of recalled a crown. It looked imposing in size all by itself compared to the new, weak, thin, copper-colored antennae that will be completely naked to the eye, showing all of its cables and wiring inside, looking more like an under-contruction feature than anything else. And the crown was take away, giving us instead a cheap rendition of the crown we had before. The new one is just ugly and I doubt it will be seen from afar at all.

In effect: the old one seemed classy and world-class, the new one looks cheap and 1950's brutalist New York at best.
