Found this on a image hosting site when randomy scouring google images. Think it could go where 200 Greenwich st. will go for a sort of Pentronas towers layout.

Think its based on one of the new renders, looks good but probably isnt official!

I really wish there would be an outside viewing deck at the WTC!

What are you talking about when completed 1 wtc will be the third tallest building in the world,so he has a right to call 1wtc a monster, but only for a short limited of time, and even so it will still be at the top 7 tallest buildings in the world for some time.

No, still third, after BK and AAB.

If 1WTC was built three years ago, it would have been tallest in the world. So to say that it 'isn't that tall' is honestly absurd.

oh ok your right , but its tall, but if you look at it by roof height, its still tall but not as impressive, it would be the 9th tallest in the world if im not mistaken by roof height..

Yep, it's 9th in the world when you don't factor in the antennae.

i think if this building would have been designed today, instead of not to long after 9/11 i feel it would be taller, especially now with lots of buildings being 1400ft+, but its a great building
