Nope. By roof height it is 6 feet or 2 meters taller than the North Tower and 12 feet or 4 meters taller than the South Tower

And that would have looked absolutely stupid in the skyline.
and that whole top of it was like a shell, not offices etc............just a facade with nothing behind the glass. truly pathetic that someone even drew this up

Yeah, glad this didn't get built.

And where are you getting 2001 from? There was NEVER any talk of building to 2001 feet. It was always 1,776 ft even under the original Libeskind plan.

Because on the site where i got the original model of 1WTC it showed that 1px = 1ft and the height of it was 2001px for the 2003-2006 design and the height of the current 1WTC is 1776px

Never mind, forgot about the mid-2003 birdcage.

If it wasn't for all of the empty space, the second to last would have been my favorite.

yes, thanks for getting this, as i said, the tip of 2WTC is very close to the roof height of 1WTC..............i dont do spires for height (see BoA, sorry, it's not a 1000 footer) though 1WTC absolutely HAS to have a spire

It's a good idea that they chose the current design. The other ones are too cumbersome.

I can't wait until people post time lapses of the ENTIRE WTC redevelopment, from 2002 to 2018 or whenever. That would truly be an amazing site to see.
