Unfortunately, that is what happened with 1WTC. It is a disappointment on so many levels. It should be taller, it shouldn't depend on a glorified antenna to generate height, and the podium shouldn't have been squared off. Those were bad design choices no matter how sentimental people want to be over this building.
what do you speak about?what kind of best features did they remove exactly?why it should be taller?money talks:there is no need,with the bad economy,for huge megatall tower.i think you are the one who is sentimental...come on!! one wtc is beautiful when shangai tower looks like a d...!

That's an ignorant post.......

The beacon glass frame has a bunch of isosceles triangles, just like the 8 triangles that make up the building. It damn right has a lot to do with the building!

A U.S. flag flutters in the wind as the final piece of a spire is lifted to the top of One World Trade Center in New York, May 2, 2013. The piece will be attached at a later date.

The final section of the spire that will top off One World Trade Center is raised past iron workers to the top of the building in New York, May 2, 2013.

Just wait a while, it'll take time, for folks to get to appreciate the finished product. The facade isn't even finished yet.

The question is:what's the point of coming in that forum just to say you don't like wtc1?
It just doesn't make sens for me!
It's like you come into my church and tell me:I don't like your religion!
WTC1 forum is like the US:Love it or leave it!

It would be amazing if they had a flag pole at the top and put the american flag on it. That would be amazing!

If they did do that, would that be the highest american flag?

From WTCProgress,


"Final 2 pieces of #OneWTC spire sit next to previously installed sections. When connected, One WTC will stand 1776 ft."

You really don't get it, do you? What do you expect to happen when you come to a building's thread, bash it, and tell people who like it that they are arrogant, egoistic, and "butthurt" because they disagree? Even better, you go around and tell people that your precious little Petronas Towers are excellent and anyone who disagrees is arrogant, egoistic, and "butthurt"? Can you not see the irony there? Is there no Malaysian equivalent to the term hypocrisy? I'd teach you what it meant, but considering I could put together sentences better than you when I was 5 years old, I doubt your cognitive capacity is up to speed. I know you are on a multiple account for being banned before, and if you don't stop trolling, I will report you.

On topic: 1WTC made made the local news. Surprisingly, they had all the facts right . The beacon looks amazing, and I can't wait for it to be placed.
