I think Bigreach is talking about the red building in front of the financial centers.

Nice video,

That building is 1 of the 2 Holland Tunnel Air intake towers along the river. Hope that helps.

I love how it rises far above all the other buildings. It's almost shameful that more will follow.

The building with the green mast is the Bank of America tower, the building to the right of it is 4 Times Square.

Hope that helps.

The tower fits the skyline quite ok, but the result is nothing as jjawbreaking as the old towers were. Its just another tower (considering its 2013, look at what is being built worldwide nowadays). Design wise i think the Trump Tower Chicago or Comcast Philly (both with similair heights as wtc1) would have made a bigger WOW factor. Lets just pray WTC 2 and 3 will complete the ensemble and then lets close this horrible chapter in worlds history so we can move on....

Well, the Comcast Tower is 974 feet, but it would look great taller. I'm not sure if a 1,368ft Comcast Tower would fit better.

I agree the only thing that I like about the new site is the amazing plaza and memorial and the beacon thing on top of One WTC.
