Excues the off topic but do you think that all these modern buildings going up around the world will be as timeless in 50yrs as the empire state building, chrysler, Ge,ect are today?

the WTC will always be iconic because of it's prestigious name, it's story and it's domination of lower manhattan.
The same can't be said about other buildings going up on the west side and in midtown, other then the Hudson Yards office towers.

The WTC became iconic and known to the world because of it's unique Twin Towered complex and impact on NYC's skyline.

Has anyone heard of the China World Trade Center Tower III? It looks similar to the twin towers of the original wtc.
Sorry for asking, just like to know.

Of course we know this tower . But that's slightly off topic now.

I believe it shares the same architectural design from the old WTC too, except this tower has a concrete core.

Is it really called WTC Tower 3 with that design? That's weird, like they acknowledge the design is taken from the original WTC.
