When the others get built, I think there will be some changed minds.

Even though 1WTC looks better without them, I still hope they will be built asap cause I don't want to see the site as a construction site any longer than it is necessary

I'm not going to repost the picture, but is that a crab on the Goldman Sachs building? That's something I would expect to see in Baltimore!

Also, I don't believe I've ever seen the cranes jumped that high above the top before. The tips should be at about where the top of the antenna will be when it's finished.

It really makes a great reflective skyline along with wfc. It's good to know the exterior is not to far off from completion. Cant wait to see this on a postcard! I just feel like if they added another supertall to the skyline other than 2 and 3 wtc
that it would throw of the skyline of lower manhattan. I hope this isn't the case though. Has any interior work started? On the lower floors?

I kind of like 1 WTC and 4 WTC alone right now.



Doesn't that look precious?

I agree with windowsoftheworld, two towers looks better than just one, looks more like the old Manhattan...

This tower is made to be alone. It doesn't need a twin.

Agreed, it takes from the old while moving forward at the same time. It's such an iconic look and represents NYC so much.
