how could you say that? New York doesnt need 3000 story towers for me to say wow, i say wow every time i am there. if people across the world arent inspired by NY they have probably never been there. These buildings are sick, they are wow, they are more "wow" than anything being built in the civilized world...

Haha come on, look at his avatar.

Anyway, I dont care if they're building a 300 ft piece of crap in the middle of a city no one's heard of, it could still be magnificent to look at. Dubai just takes it and throws billions of dollars into manufacturing a city out of nowhere.

Reminds me of a mirage

You have your opinion and I have mine.

Unfortunately, for you, your opininon is wrong.

Yes, in fact, an opinion can be wrong.

An opinion can't be wrong, because it is an opinion. A fact could be wrong. But an opinion is not a fact. So hence an opinion cannot be wrong, just a matter of taste.

Whether the Earth is flat or round is a fact, not a matter of opinion. It's round and has been proven so.

"An Oxford student is playing a part in the project to build a new skyscraper in New York on the site of the World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

Christian Bergner, from Wood Farm, has won a four-month contract with Libeskind, the leading architectural firm that has designed the Freedom Tower.

Mr Bergner will be part of a team working for architect Daniel Libeskind to make models and produce detailed plans for the new building.

Mr Bergner admitted there was a great responsibility with the role, but thought the tower could breathe new life into the city."

WTC Tower 5? Finally!

Can someone answer my question?

Will the tower crane be up by the end of the week? And will it be visible in the skyline?

It will be at least 250 meters (to the roof) in my opinion. Anywhere from 250 to 300 sounds right.

Obvious, you know nothing about New York City... NYC is having over a hundred of new skyscrapers under construction right now. New York City is still developing as well. If you think about historic skyscrapers such as Flation Building, Chysler Building, Empire State Building, etc., people would still say WOW to New York City. New York City has long history of world's tallest bulidings than compared to any cites in the world. Plus New York City has so many to offer than most of cities around the world. Why do you think why millions and millions of people around the world are still visiting New York City before and after 9/11? It is obvious people are still WOWing at New York City.

How much longer will it be, before they erect the crane, and this building begins to rise?

Also, how long does it usually take for them to erect a crane?

First off, the Ground Zero Watch on NY Magazine mentioned that the FT is not expected to rise until almost next year if it does get built.
