I agree, WTC 2 is that will bring beauty and style to all the ensemble, composing a new "iconography" of the NY skyline!

Oh i'm sorry.

17 State Street awful? You are the first who thinks that. I think it looks very good.

Such a shame it's an awesome and iconic tower and I'd rather see it built instead of 3 or 4WTC

Is this forum un-moderated now, or what? How do you report people?

I know its off scale but thats not the point of the picture. I wanted to see how the building itself suited NYC. Also its not exactly that off topic, so chill.

Is the building going to have full illumination or only the base and antenna/spire?

unless they've changed anything (which I hope they haven't) this is it as far as illumination is concerned.

dbox (they have the best renderings of the WTC)
