What do you guys think, which height must this tower reach until its visible from the Brooklyn Bridge? Since now i think its unvisible, allthought its ~80m tall.

Not long came back from new York, walking around downtown you can see that this tower will be prominant from quite a few streets, forming great sight lines. It will look fantastic! here it is my contribution

I looked at my pictures while standing on the Brooklyn Bridge and there appears to be a perfect gap for 1WTC to fit in! The only buildings in front are the appartment buildings near the shore line that are 25 stories tall. The Millenium Hilton is on the left and 7WTC is on the right. My guess is that you should be able to see 1WTC as it reaches the 30th floor.

I can see the WTC form parts of the New Jersey Gold Coast now , a few months ago that wasn't possible.

Come on- that gap between 1WTC and 2WTC needs another tower instead of that memorial. A much more impressive memorial could have been built inside that tower. That memorial will never be an international icon like the old WTC towers.

I think it will be a visitormagnet although America`s importance will shrink.

Probably more Americans than tourists from foreign states though.

The memorial isn't supposed to be an icon, it's supposed to be a memorial. The site as a whole will be iconic.

I think the gap won't be as noticeable from other angles.
