oh man, NY desperately needs more of these huge glassy monsters. Nothing cheesy like Dubai, but classic like 1WTC

Love that first pic with the rainbow; glad to see 1WTC is on board showing its "pride"!

That 37km makes it seem a lesser distance than it actually is!

Check out the Hudson Yards complex.

This is going to be a magical view once the whole complex is done.

I know at least 3 more glass skyscrapers planned near the WTC complex

22 Thames Street


133 Greenwich (I have doubts about its beauty, due to the notorious architect, Peter Poon)


50 West Street

22 Thames Street and 50 West look really cool. I love the slender look that 50 West has. Elegant and delightful. However, I think 22 Thames would look better if it were a bit wider and taller. But that's just my opinion. Awesome towers nonetheless

mods can edit or delete posts.

I love the reflection of evening colours in 1TWCs glass. It looks very good.

Does anyone else really like how they have the fins of the base cladding in different states of being extended? I think that it adds a nice fluid quality to the base, helping to soften its harsh and rigid geometry.
