we're not buying what your saling buddy, so give it a rest. Now where were we. The model needs to be upgraded. The ring around the spire should be change, it hasn't look like that in years.

Wrong, I am a 21 year old human studying BA Architecture at Westminster University.

Before you attack me with I'm disrespecting family members, just research Manny Badillo, John and Bev Titus and Luke Rudkowski and listen to what 'the last survivor' William Rodriguez has to say.

Uaarkson: One World Trade Centre, discuss?
Way to go AlexanderCameron. Don't let these people here bring you down, they don't know you so they have no right to judge just because you stated your opinion. It's amazing how ****ed up people are in America today. You shout out a conspiracy theory and right away people call you a "nut." I'm no conspiracy theorist but I don't believe the official story either. I don't buy the controlled demolition theory but I do believe there is much more to the story. Anyway back to One World Trade Center. So glad this Tower is growing faster and faster.

Brilliant remark!! I take it that you are skeptical as well of the Apollo Moon landing, and you believe that Elvis Presley is not really dead, but flipping burgers somewhere in Montana.

Almost, its projected to be somewhere between 55-60 stories high at the end of the year. Which equates to 650-720 feet tall.

its lower manhattan, so the word cluster doesn't really work down there. If it was a smaller city or there wasn't any buildings for miles away. Then yeah it would be quite the cluster.

Well, given that most of the WTC is significantly taller and glassier than everything around it, I'd say it will be a very visually impressive "cluster."

WTC Is to New York what what the Shard is to London. Both represent something very special all be it for different reasons. It's nice to see some hight, one can only wait for the cladding. New York and London... The best city's in the world!

Couldn't be different. You forget the whole reason the WTC is being rebuilt, and were at one time composed of the two tallest buildings in the world. The Shard is a modern day project funded by foreign investors from a totally different era. The WTC towers have a lot more meaning to them considering all the lives that were lost than the Shard does.

I think you are confusing this tower with the WTC memorial. This tower has no connection to any lives lost, it is just an office building.

So, you are saying that the US Government, the same Government that couldn't keep ANYTHING secret over the past 234 years has managed to keep the great 9/11 conspiracy secret totally secret for 9 years.

The US Government is either "Hyper-competent" as you contend, or it is in reality, incompetent, as reality insists, for allowing the 9/11 attacks to happen.

Let us dismiss such foolishness and get on with the business of this forum, the construction of Tower One.

I think you misinterpret what I have written. No one can forget the loss of live that happened 9 years ago, but I am talking about what the new tower's mean to the the cities they are been built in. Both represent something to be very proud off. The Shard once completed will be the tallest in European community, 1 WTC when completed, will be among the tallest buildings in the world and the tallest in the United States. This is my comparison.
