Wow i just realized something, that tower 1 WTC is now taller then 2 WFC, so now it only has to supass 3 WFC and tower 1 will be tall then all WFC buildings making it a dominant building in lower Manahttan.

do you all think that about june of 2011 it will be the tallest building in lower Manhattan?

as of right now there are no plans on remaking and twin towers on the site, yes there are putting it names towers 1 and 2 but they wont be twins like the original tower 1 and 2.

Is the 7 WTC that stands beside 1 WTC a new building? Because I thought 7 WTC went down on 9/11?

It did. The one you see is the rebuilt version, the first building to be finished as part of the new complex.

yeah, there's a lot of people who things the same (me included), but i think that this is because the reason of the construction of this tower.. i love this tower & is wonderful to see it under construction!
