Still busy convincing people how great the WTC project is? Haven't seen you in awhile, you're missing out on the gossip. Word on the street is that another skyscraper has sprouted up in the Midtown, this one is 1100' to roof.

I'm stunned. I never thought those 2 and 3 WTCs were going to be that tall. Over 400 meters is veery high (concidering the average height of NYC towers).

You can't bash it into people's heads enough.


Anyways, 3WTC cannot be touched.

I like how towers 2 & 3 don't have that ugly ass base. The tower 3 lobby looks amazing!

Believe it or not, the Freedom Tower base may be the best one yet. It's semi-see-through so you can see some of the beams holding up the tower. There are thousands of reflective glass panels on it too (they react to light and change color, I think); it isn't as bad as most people think.
