Ok I've already said what building those were. It's Stuyvesant house and they're not projects and NYC is dangerous this isn't the late 80's.

I respectfully disagree. I think the new WTC will be amazing. They look amazing and will be much safer.

And how can you not think the new towers are massive?

We have 1WTC being the same height to the roof and a bit taller to the top as O1WTC. We have N2WTC being a mere 12 ft shorter then O2WTC. Then we have an ESB right next to them. And then we have an almost supertall right next to that. Thats pretty darn massive.

As someone pointed out a while ago, a single one of these towers would completely change Lower Manhattan. And we get all 4 going up (more or less) at the same time.

The new WTC will be just as good and even better then the old

I disagree with you

I love the twins, I have so much respect and admiration for them, and I will forever miss them, but at the end of the day, the twins were just (and I really dont want to use that word) two really big boxes

Shanghai tower looks quite massive! But with 196 meters lower!

A Matter of Taste

For me, WTC 1 is 417 meters high real..
Hi illegal.

Just so you know ... - most of those numbers for the BK aren't even close.

Back OT.

It's great to see this site coming together after all these years. It will look awesome when completed.

Hello Everybody:

I just showed my father this thread last night and he was amazed at all the renderings, pictures, and updates on Tower 1v2. He actually cryed cause him and his dad helped build the twins and My dads last job in his 39 year construction career was at Tower 1v2. So he told me to tell all of you how Thankful and Proud of all of you who take your time out of your lives and do such a great job with these amazing updates. Thank you so much Everybody.

To add to what kingdomca said I'd guess that its not a case of those luxury seats replacing ones normal fans would have got. Once you get that large the actual cost per seat starts to increase so if you'd probabley have ended up with an 80,000 seat(like most of the other proposals I'v seen) stadium with 5,000 or so luxury seats. I notice the lease seating doesnt include the playoff's(just first refusal on the seat) so the championship/div 1 playoff(the most important domestic game of the season IMHO) could end up having the best atmosphere of any game once again if some of the bigger clubs are involved.

I'd guess the FA are less likely to run into trouble than a club would be aswell kingdomca. Unless they've been hopelessly over optimistic with attendances theres not nearly as much risk since unlike a club which could face religation or failiure to qualify for the champs league its garenteed the same set of games every year.
What are you smoking, dude?
