I think two antennas would be overkill, this isn't so bad:

This building just doesn't look right with a twin. Nothing beats the square, dominant shape the twins had.

The reason they didn't build twins because it will remind people of the original twins and will hurt those who lost family, friends, and loved ones when the original twins fell. But they might just might build a twin were the performing arts center will be just saying.

That last picture with the red sky is amazing. It makes it looks like a master villain's headquarters!

Blue tint + tapering + reflectiveness = Chameleon. But if you don't agree that's fine, 1WTC is the epitome of dominance or whatever..
Can you give me some examples, or a link to the buildings that look like 1 WTC ?

This tower is going to look marvelous in the night skyline once the beacon is ready.

Looking back at 5 Years of the World Trade Center view. - Repost

Worth the repost - Current view back to 5 years of documenting the Lower Manhattan skyline and One WTC from Jersey City. The first image is from Steven Siegel documenting the original WTC, same view. I thank him for that.

This is not true. Stop spreading misinformation.

The General design of Tower 1 would be ruined if a twin were built. The building standing alone by itself is perfect.

Very few Supertall's would look good if they had a twin.

Bathroom fitout now complete above floor 64th.

Here's the opening for a stairway that will link 64th and 65th for Vantone.

I don't get why people want a twin. We need to be reminded of what happened, and even if the towers would look different, like they do now, the whole twin concept would be too similar to the original complex. This new complex is perfect IMO.

That is the lot for the Performing Arts center so nothing tall will be built there. The foundations for this are already set, so that decision is final.

Not being an USA citizen, I can say that building twins again would be pretty much a way to say "Absolutely nothing happened here on September 11th, 2001. Nope" While a completely different proyect, that aknowledges the legacy of the twins, and the empty they left says "Something really traumatic and tragic happened here, and we should never forget it if we don't want it to happen again" which, IMO, is the way to go.
