No disagreements: Ain't gonna happen, and is still a good idea if only to make a statement.

Why do you say this? The total office space of WTC 1, 2, 3 and 4 is a good bit more than two WTC 1's would be so if twins of FT were built the others could just be scaled back to give the same amount of office space. I realize it's too late for that now but it certainly would have been done.

You could wish for them to build 4 of these things ain't gonna happen. Or should say not going to happen. Just be happy with what you got. I pray to god they'd change the first design. And thank him when they did. I never thought, maybe they should build two. One was good enough for me.

Never going to happen, but it would answer the question that will be asked for a long time after FT is finished... "Nice. But where is the other one?" !!

if they were going to build 2 FT's like that they should be 1776ft to the roof, no spires. Now that would look awesome!

Governor places Calatrava station ahead of W.T.C. towers

ok guys here we go, latest updates from governor....

Gov. David Paterson laid out his priorities for ground zero the day after the seventh anniversary of the attacks, and he broke with the city and some community leaders in the order of his list.

Paterson placed the World Trade Center PATH hub designed by Santiago Calatrava above the Freedom Tower and Silverstein Properties office buildings. That’s the reverse of the priorities Deputy Mayor Robert Lieber identified to Downtown Express two months ago and repeated last week.

“Lower Manhattan is a serious hub of transportation, which if developed correctly can again accommodate [people’s] needs,” Paterson said Friday during a speech to the New York Building Congress. “There will be more of us and more places to go.”

Like Lieber and nearly everyone else involved in the rebuilding effort, Paterson placed the memorial at the top of his list.

“It’s priority and having a plan,” Paterson said, describing how the site will get rebuilt. “It’s following the steps of the plan, and if there are obstacles, being honest about it, and being honest with the public.”

Paterson took a step toward that honesty when he asked the Port Authority for a realistic set of ground zero budgets and timetables earlier this summer. The Port will have answers for Paterson and the public by the end of the month.

After his speech Friday, Paterson gave his first direct response to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s request that the governor shutter the city-state Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. Bloomberg wanted to transfer the L.M.D.C.’s rebuilding functions to the city, and he particularly wanted to relieve the L.M.D.C. of its responsibility for the long-delayed demolition of the former Deutsche Bank building.

“I do understand the perspective of how we could close down the L.M.D.C. and also in a sense how we would get the Deutsche Bank building down as soon as possible,” Paterson said.

However, since the L.M.D.C. receives federal funding, the city-state agency will have to remain in existence at least on paper, Paterson said. Bloomberg acknowledged as much in his essay in The Wall Street Journal, where his comments on the L.M.D.C. first appeared.

“Legally, I don’t think the state can disband the L.M.D.C., but at our next biweekly meeting I’m going to ask Mayor Bloomberg to come in and show us how that would be possible,” Paterson said. “Also, the way the L.M.D.C. works, there are resources becoming available that we’d have to give up to shut the L.M.D.C. down. And so we don’t think that’s an immediate decision that we’d like to make.”

Paterson said that while he and Bloomberg may not be in agreement about the L.M.D.C., he is glad to hear new ideas and see more energy focused on ground zero rebuilding.

“To me, that’s a change from what must have been going on in last seven years,” Paterson said.

He also said that while meeting with the mayor this summer, they discussed how “mutually agitated” they were that the memorial was behind schedule.

Bloomberg isn’t the first person to suggest closing the L.M.D.C. — former Gov. George Pataki wanted to dismantle the agency before he left office in 2006, but he failed to do so.

Paterson joked that he has spent much of his first six months as governor listening to people tell him that he should achieve the things New York’s past governors failed to do.

“Everyone says to me, ‘Gov. Pataki said he was going to do this and Gov. Spitzer said he was going to do that, therefore you have to do it,’” Paterson said.

“No,” he concluded, drawing a laugh from the crowd of construction professionals, “that’s not true.”

BY September 29 they should release a new report about changes to the public.

the rebars on the south side of the south core is getting very dense whereas the rebars on the north core is never appearing. I think south core will rise again before north core rises next time.

New York was dominated by the twin towers and should be again in the future!
It was so cool, to have the Freedom twin-tower. Looks more majestically.
Maybe they gonna build twin towers anywhere else in the city?! Maybe on the old railyard?

honestly, i have thought about it for a while now, and have to admit, it looks good solitary! it makes a bold statement as it stands there by itself. i think it is great to have the one tall tower there.
