I thought I read somewhere that they were going to build 2 big Geodesic domes at the base, one on either side to compliment the design. I think they will be used for parking.

The diameter of the base is 224 ft. The sides on the sears tower are 225 ft at the base. The diameter of the Petronas towers at the base is 150 ft. This thing is big.

This building should have no real terrorist threat. It is a residential building full of foreign millionaires. Far from a sign of American imperialism which the WTC portrayed.
