Are you really incapable of understanding the implications of capping this tower at 2001 feet? Use your brain.

Inspired by that beautiful render I decided to mess around with google earth and see what the future skyline might look like:

Well, thankfully Manhattan looks much better than Google Earth

Can I ask where you downloaded those WTC models?

that looks a little off though, it looks like 7 wtc is where 2 wtc should be, and 2 wtc is in the south west corner.

Maybe you could enlighten us, since you obviously seem to function at a higher level than mere humans.

Having said that, someone tries to become human, that is the animals!


I like the animals but I don't like them.

Why denying yourself.

Like who constantly dream of the USA - what kind dream?

What freedom do you have in the States?

Behaving like the animals?


And what Americans want that?


Watching South Park?


That's a fiction.

Why making it real?

That's a crime . . .

The original concepts all seem to have a much larger base than what is being built. There's no way these could have fit in the same space. I guess eliminating the streets and moving the other buildings was on the layout at the time?

Here you find the original diagram of the Freedom Tower's Evolution, which exclude the intolerable editing of ChewySpoon:

This is the greatest thread in all of the internet. It attracts a fascinating mixture of architecture geeks, malcontents, ironheads, New Yorkers, conspiracy theorists, haters, lovers and outright looney-bins. Sometimes all in the same post.

Kind of like how Jupiter vaccums in so much cosmic debris--this thread draws in those people with both a working computer, and an expired prescription to Haldol. Even from the farthest reaches of this universe we call the internet, the mentally disturbed will eventually find a home here, rest assured.

And you can rest ever more assuredly, I will be out there in the ether; reading every page and eargerly anticipating every update..

I thought they should have made the roof height 1776 feet and the the spire height the year it would be completed which is 2013. Then it would be forever remembered as being complete in 2013 not the year the world trade center fell.
