Here's a render I made in 30 minutes with an image of Harry Bell and a render by Silverstein Prop.
Hope y'all like it, it's not that accurate, but at least it accomplish my purpose: give an idea of how the skyline will look like from Brooklyn.

This view would only be around for a few years until 2WTC blocks most of the view of 1WTC from Brooklyn

That layout is old. Wrong in a couple of areas too.

This thing will look brilliant, but does anyone else kind of wish 2WTC was the taller building? I, for one do, just because I love the four diamond look and would love to see that as the highest point of the group of buildings. But ultimately I cannot complain as I know the finished products (both 1WTC and 2WTC) will look great.

Well, I think it would be too tricky to make this building the tallest. I like the building, but 1 WTC looks more like the old Trade Towers and I think the change would be too big of a shock.

Wow those pictures look amazing! I spent a year in NY and I used the PATH at the WTC everyday. It is great to see so much progress since I left and to also see this great city rising again hopefully one day I will be able to come back and work there again. For now I have to make do with the Shard in London, which is an equally great skyscraper but NY is king of the skyscrapers!!!

No This building fits much better with the rest of the skyline.

Since this building has so many cameras on it all the time im sure that when its done there will be great videos of high speed consturction and a myriad of the thousands of pics taken. Cant wait for some of those...also cant wait to go to the Observation Deck

Cool! Hopefully it will rise at maximum speed next summer, with a topping out late 2011!
