Had to post this for my 300th post!

I was trying to find a pic of what 1 WTC looked like when it was 300 m (because it is my 300th post), but I came across this twin freedom tower rendering. I know it's never going to happen and all, but please don't criticize me, it's my 300th post, a little like a half birthday.

And by the way, it's funny because this is exactly one month since I joined, and this is also my 300th post! Milestones today! 300 m represents the height of a supertall, so I'm so excited that I got this far! Thank to all you guys for the wonderful jokes, debates, updates, and pictures throughout my days on skscrapercity (and even before I joined, I avidly looked at this thread for updates.) Once again, thanks!

In my opinion what we're getting is just as nice though.

Despite its many minor flaws, it's still a very elegant and simple tower with aspects of undeniable prowess in minimalism. Something the old towers greatly represented and what it represented for captalism. Straightforward, efficient, power, and world trade. Truly a remarkable building, and even more so when seen in person.

I dunno I think it looks more like something in Shanghai with twins, I don't know what makes me think that either , but I think the current group of towers far surpasses two of these anyway so I'm happy

Durst earmarks 94K sf at One WTC for smaller tenants

The Durst Organization will earmark 94,000 square feet for smaller office tenants at One World Trade Center, the landlord and developer said in a release today. Two entire floors – the 45th and 46th – are being set aside for this purpose, and will allow up to 18 tenants to take smaller spaces than previously available in the trophy tower. Subdivisions of the space can range from 2,000 square feet to 43,000 square feet.

“There is demand, from across the globe, from large multinational companies to establish a presence at One World Trade Center,” said Eric Engelhardt, director of leasing at the tower in the statement.

The Real Deal reported that the building planned to subdivide spaces last year, though plans weren’t final at that time.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Tara Stacom is leading leasing efforts at the 1,776-foot-tall, three million-square-foot building, which is about 55 percent leased.

“The pre-built program provides an opportunity for a smaller tenant to immediately occupy space in a prominent building,” Stacom said. “We will also build space tailored to a tenant’s specific needs.”

One of the things I really love about the Manhattan is how on an individual level most of the towers don't seem like anything to write home about, yet they all work so well together. Though I do also love Shanghai's skyline, at times I feel like the buildings at Pudong are all battling each other for attention.. it's still impressive but it could be so much more so with a little unity, as the Manhattan skyline demonstrates.

I could be wrong, but it looks like the stainless steel edges are lit in a couple of those night pics?
