I couldn't agree with u more. I would've definately wanted to see them build new twin-towers. Not the same design as the old ones were, but still a twin-tower buildings. It would've been suitable when considering the old ones were twin too. This new design isn't bad, but two of them would've been better. Now there's many different kinds of towers coming to that place, which is cool, but two very high towers would've been the best choice. Everyone remembers how the WTC-towers looked like, when they dominated the city.

Why don't they build it higher - say 1776 METRES!! That would beat the Burj.

there is too much opposition to build anything of that height. terrorism is a big threat in NY and they dont llike building to high because of it. but ya never kniow, there is a lot of speculation on the westside of towers topping out past chi spire??

I wonder if Trump still wants his 200-story building. This is the perfect time.

The height just isn't everything. A tower that high in the very heart of New York City would be the number one target of terrorists everywhere on Earth. And no one needs a tower that high, even tho it would be wonderful. How could u get anyone to live in the 300th floor after the 9/11 attack?

Yeah, but he missed out on Columbus Circle. That would have been a great location for one.

They may have moved, but they are still at the same level since they were installed there.
