I just don't like how far it seems 1WTC is from the rest of the complex, it seems even with 2WTC it will still look to distant...

I think this comment is a bit sad to be honest.

Rebuilding this site, let alone, this building is a great achievement. Especially on a site in which such a devastating tragedy occurred.
You believe it's an ugly building, that's your opinion, but that's all it is, an opinion. Nothing more.

Love that poster. The clothing attire reminds me of Great Gatsby. I wouldn't mind a Roaring Twenties revival.

I'm just going to make a few points here. The World Trade Center Complex and it's towers were designed they way they are because honestly they made the least amount of people angry. This whole venture had thousands of interests staked in it, and the result was something not architecturally visionary beyond it's years or offensive to those who were affected by the horrors of 9/11. And I am of the opinion that these buildings vary in their individual designs from good to impressive, this entire project is impressive purely by the nature of being rebuilt.

Also I have never been a fan of how WTC 1. has been rendered as so Farr apart from the other towers it feels weird.

They might be testing the lights at the base of the spire, looks like there's a faint green covering it.

definitely seems like they were testing out the lighting at the base of the spire again, seems fainter than the last time. +1 for Cap'n thanks for the heads up.
