5 WTC isn't dead. It will be an empty lot south of what will be Liberty Park and St. Nicholas church. A valuable lot that eventually be home to a skyscraper. But this is a bit off topic.

Was bored again today. Figured to find out a way to make 1WTC look taller (By taller I mean 2,500 feet high), while using the design we have now.

I only came up with 2.

One is to just invert it on the top:

And two is to make the spire so insanley tall:

Would look decent if it didn't look like it's about to break off.
