It's the only tower that has a chance of being redesignd, but I think it's fine the way it is. In the end, JPMorgan will get what they want, if the floors are cantilevered or not.

We should see other renders of this building from other views before passing judgment on this one.

Regarding 5WTC, looking at it from the distance with the rest of the skyline, I'd imagine it would look pretty normal since the funky parts are closer to the ground. I'm out on this one until more renders are posted, but as of right now I kinda like it.

I don't understand why New Yorkers hate it. If they do redesign T5, I wouldn't expect anything good.

It's better than what it's going to replace:

the bowl of that toilet is a shelter for the church that's to be rebuilt a few feet north of it. (think citigroup)

"It's ironic that after all the international design competitions and critiques and angst about "the meaning of the site," this design just comes out of nowhere, plop!, without so much as a peep from the public et al... "
This is a quote from someone from another site, but I cannot agree more.

i honestly don't see why people are making a fuss about it. it's an interesting building and only slightly resembles a toilet.... and only slightly.

I think if I ever go to the new WTC site, I'll REALLY have to go pee.

2 Waterfalls, and a giant toilet...

That reminds me of one of these esipodes from The Simpsons when Homer Simpsons went to twin towers just to use the restroom. It was hilarious!
