The proposed performing arts center. is it similar sized footprint of 1WTC?

I thought of this thats all;

7WTC would loose its view though, doubt anything like this would ever happen, but its inspiring.
This one looks so much better than a lonely WTC1...

I couldnt agree more. I've always thought the same thing. A roof height of 1776 with a spire of 2001 makes much more sense. Not to mention that the building would have a larger presence in the skyline than what was there before... and would serve, by default, as a better memorial and reminder.

1776 to commemorate the birth of the country and 2001 as the symbolic height to remember 9/11. Why build something that is the same size as what was there before? Not to mention all the supertalls that are going up around the world. 1WTC wont even rank among the top ten tallest buildings in the world. If it was built to a height of 2001 it would have a better ranking and help to elevate the skyline in NYC into the future.

Oh well... just my opinon... and it doesnt matter now.. the building is begining to rise.

Oooo... dunno if this has been mentioned already, but they've started installing steel framework over the exposed PATH tracks at the south end of the Memorial Complex. The gap is starting to be filled

Ditto

Can work out like this,

1 WTC (FT)
2 WTC (an identical FT beside it, where the Peforming Arts Center is)
3 WTC (200 Greenwich st)
4 WTC (175 Greenwich st)
5 WTC (150 Greenwich st)
6 WTC (130 Liberty st)
7 WTC as 7WTC

That way all the buildings add up again.

There isn't enough room and it would require a complete reworking of the site. I wanted twins at first but I've grown to like all four of the new tower designs and I'd be saddened to lose any of them.

Would people get over the twin WTC 1 already? i understand the appeal completely, but i feel as if we should try to appreciate what is gonna be there now, and judging by those renders, it really is going to be just as powerful as the original towers... Absolutely beautiful... and i have a question, is that a floor i see being installed at the top of the beams or just a surface for the workers?

I think that it actually looks better the way it is going to be built than with tower 2 and 3.

Earthcam is fogged, but you can make out some perimeter columns on the east side.
