I'm probably the only one, but I can't help but fear that the WTC1 will be not impressively big enough when finished. Still hoping!

Chill man Trust me, just double the height of what the tower is now and you got a nice sized building. Believe me when Done it will look amazing

The block sizes in new york kind of prohibit a lot of skyscrapers with large bases. and speaking practically, buildings are inefficient once they get over a certain height, so id say this one is just about in the middle. it will be perfect.

Imagine the original 1 WTC without 2 WTC. Tada, that is what it will look like from some angles. From other angles it'll taper towards the top.

the scale of the freedom tower ain't bigger than the original Tower 1 anyway. The spire is taller, but in scale it seems even slimer, because it is not a box but gets smaller towards the top

Hah, the base alone is about the size of the two tallest in my hometown.

at least your town has buildings on that page. In my town there is a church and an industial tower both may reach 60 or 70 meters not more if at all. I call it the skyline of my hometown

What all the pics, renderings and diagrams do not show is this. Tower One will be just as tall and slightly narrower than one of the Twins from the cardinal directions.

Something that can not be truly appreciated unless one has seen the Twins in person towering over lower Manhattan. (Few pictures captured there total dominance of the lower Manhattan skyline.)

(I am old enough to have witnessed the Twins construction.)

The rest of you will just have to wait a year.

I totally agree, I mean I was at the old WTC many times like at least 40 to 50 times and the twins were Huge so knowing that the New Tower 1 is going to be as tall if not slightly taller then the Old Tower 1 , Then the NEW Tower 1 is going to be huge and dominate the same as the old one did. Also the New Tower 1 is going to be stonger built then the previous Tower 1.

This is how One World Trade Center compares to Dallas' 2 tallest buildings.
