Most people seem to blame Wall Street "greed" for The Durst Organization's changes to the design, but understand in the realm of Wall Street, which said company is not a part of, greed is indeed good. It brought us many of New York's skyscrapers, all constructed properly no matter how vacant they were when completed. Afterall, the Empire State Building and original WTC weren't failed investments in the long-run. I'm not saying buildings should be built without committed future economic investment, but twenty-million dollars is chump change in Manhattan. Thanks a lot Douglas "Douchebag" Durst! Also, filling a building to fifty percent with some company already in the city isn't an accomplishment, nor a reason to cut costs.

China is looking better.
This is among the most idiotic posts I've read.

The lowest part of the antenna/spire that's staying (green), is that the widest part of it? I found out a while back that it's 21 feet in diameter.

Everything was going as planned, and then a curveball is thrown, as if we were given the middle finger. I suppose the same can be said about the Burj Dubai when the name was changed right before it opened, but I don't really care about Dubai. Furthermore, Durst lied to us about why the changes were made and Foyer allowed the changes to be made, despite chief architect Childs' own dissent.

My China comment was one liner, so please don't take it too seriously. I was just inferring that watching Chinese skyscrapers constructed these days is more satisfying than Western ones that are either on hold or constantly changed.
If you choose not to believe what Durst said then thats your opinion, fine. Doesn't mean hes a liar, frankly i don't believe it either but you have no way of proving that hes lying.. Your china comment was as idiotic as the rest of your post, if you have an issue watching NYC get what is it? 10, 15? supertalls, then be my guest and go stare at the shanghai tower..no love lost if you do

That many supertalls? In a perfect world maybe, but my expectations are relatively low after what has happened with Freedom Tower.

Oh, I'm aware of all the supertalls proposed, and I would love to see them all built, but there's no guarantee anymore most of them will even break groud. I could flap my gums and say "OMG NY IS BOOM BOOM BOOMING," but I digress.

What's wrong with calling it Freedom Tower? People call the Willis Tower Sears, and considering I've followed this project since the beginning, I can call it whatever I please.

The Freedom Tower name will always stick around. It was a name that was told to us since the beginning.

If we can't refer to it as the freedom tower, then the orginal trade center as the twins.

this guy makes great update videos, i would recommend subscribing to him if you want to see how this tower is from the ground, from different angles. Videos are of course a step closer to reality than pictures.

How long shall it be for the anticipation to burden us until those monstrous temporary platforms are dismantled?

Not sharing the same opinion as you doesn't make someone a troll.
