Its an optical illusion. The perspective looks correct if you throw some guide lines in there. That left side IS there, but its very skinny and close to the sky color from this perspective.

The building is supposed to be parallel to the WTC footprints, not the street to the left side.

The thing is that this type of render, where a building's vertical lines are actually vertical in the photo from top to bottom, tends to mess with your sense of perspective if you look at it for too long. In a normal photo those vertical lines will get closer and closer together towards the top because the top is further from the camera than the bottom of the building is. You cannot get a photo like this in real life with a normal everyday camera.

Overall, this render is about as perfect as is possible.

Amazingly, how much expenditure some people are making for their argumentation!

the vantage point of that render seems to be about 30 stories above ground level

the small building directly left behind the freedom tower would absolutely not fit into your perspective... it's got a square-formed-base -the freedomtower instead looks, like it's got a triangle-base in this rendering! u cannot mix up 2 diferent perspectives in one rendering... thats totally WRONG!!!
the original perspective from the photography was not used from the creators of this rendering -and that -whatever some people here say IS a mistake!!!


as u can see here in this pic the rendering from above should more look like this cause thats the perspective in which all the other buildings in the background of the RENDERING are displayed!
--parallel-perspective!

Well anyone who's arguing back is an IDIOT because I do 3D CGI modeling, and I KNOW what I'm talking about. You obviously DON'T KNOW jack shit about what you're talking about.

And no, that smaller building is not a square, it has a parallelogram footprint just like WTC7 next to it has. Only its tower on the top has perpendicular sides.

Anyways, I'm done arguing with the mentally challenged here.

Yes, thank God nobody's whining about rebuilding "the Twins."

Well I had hoped mine would, but I'm noticing tonight a lot of people around here just want to argue about anything and everything, no matter how wrong/naive they are about it. If all else fails, they resort to America bashing.

Are the core areas around the two tower cranes concrete or dirt.

half-half i think! the inner core might already be concrete, the area around the core for example the eastern area (the area DOWN on the webcam) is still bare ground as u can see they still get all the dirt out with the machines-
