looks like they're finally getting their BAD WORD together.

So, will this be above street level at the end of the year?

Geez. Relax buddies! I say something negative or neutral about USA and there's 15 replies all telling me to shut up. Yes there's a lot more skyscrapers in NYC than in Dubai, but the difference is that in Dubai the towers look much better (probably cuz they're newer but anyway). And there's not room for new towers to get build in the big cities of USA. Sure Americans have much longer skyscraper history but I believe the towers of Dubai will be as durable as in the States. Don't get me wrong, I would still visit USA rather than Dubai.

Is it possible that u are just envious to Dubai just because it will have the highest tower and is the fastest growing city?

The problem is, you came in here are announced that the project was "no big deal" because it's not in Dubai. What does Dubai have to do with New York? They are two very different cities on opposite sides of the planet.

And another thing. The new WTC is HUGELY important. It's not just another skyscraper.....It is the replacement for the disaster of 9/11. That makes it much more than just a building.

If you don't think it's important, then stay in the Dubai threads and leave this one alone.

Wow! You're an idiot! You don't even know what you are talking about it! Please leave us alone and go away! Stay in Dubai threads. Please do not bother to bash any cities!

If you talk that way even you're in USA, your ass will get kicked for sure! Never piss any Americans off period!

I like New York more. If you look at pics of the city you just get a good feeling. A beautiful city. Dubai is nice to but some skyscrapers i just don't like. And it's a whole new city so it needs time. New York has just beautiful old skyscrapers and now this new skyscrapers. Love them.

PS: I've never been in NYC but i want to go there once.

(Sorry if my English is bad)

There are two things I absolutely despise when it comes to WTC. People who say Dubai is teh best (it isn't), and those who say they want the old twins back (not gonna happen). There is nothing about that that even resembles ultra-nationalism or what-may-have-you; you brought that up.

Just imagine if I posted on some random skyscraper going up in Dubai and I repeatedly spammed "this is crap/fugly/Chi-Spire is better." Wouldn't you be pissed?

I sadly agree. This is not the 'exclamation point' that the NYC skyline needs to replace the one that was lost. OTOH, I do and will continue to check this thread every day to see the progress and make commentary, anyways.

That is another reason why I'm so very excited about the tall-building construction activity in Chicago, too.

<sigh...>

Maybe if that idea 'leakage' about the MSG area comes to fruition....

Mike

The projects that will be happening in Midtown will most likely make the WTC look small.

I wish all of you critics would shut up. All of you. Just don't post on this thread. Do you know what it's like for people who watched the towers fall to hear your fatuous idiocy?

And as for "the USA aren't that "special" as the most americans believe". It's not a superiority complex. Maybe you don't understand what happened. Go wikipedia it.

The MSG project/Hotel Penn/Drake sites/Westside Project (the largest lot of land on Manhattan)/Brookfield/maybe the Con-Ed site (doubt it)/Hudson Yards/ect
In fact, a 90-story hotel was recently proposed for the Javits Center, but it has competition with another plan.

There's going to be a lot of supertalls for Midtown in the coming months. Hopefully, the Freedom Tower will not be tallest in NY for long.
