it's hard to beat one of the world's greatest icons but nevertheless Tower Verre will be a great tower.

Absolutely love Tower Verre. 1 WTC is great, but architecturally it doesn't stand up to this building.

WTC is slick and simple while this is more raw and in someway more... Evil looking?
Also 1WTC has had way to many changes through the constrcution period! while Tower verre was, as far as I know, hasn't been changed yet
Tower verre will also make a huge impact on the skyline while completed. And even though WTC already makes that impact, I think Verres could be even more dominating!

Its design is incredible but it lacks height. At the end I think it will be overshadowed by 1WTC because of that.

People nowadays really lost the sense for height. 320m is still VERY TALL, and some in this forum complain about lack of height, even though they never stood next to a simmilar tall building.

When i stood next to the ESB for the first time, i was in awe. And this one, will be as tall as ESBs 84th OB Deck height, which is amazingly tall. Plus, itll be on a midblock location, which will make it even more imposing.

Furthermore, the 380m version was too tall, and i thank Amanda Burden for shortening it. Look at sbarns render of the CP skylines future. Tower Verre seems very imposing with its current height, not to mention with an additional 60m.

I am very fine with this tower and cant wait to see it materialized soon.

It was significantly shortened in height.

Um, Tower Verre is meant to be a tower of beauty. Unlike the dumpy WTC with its junkyard barbwire antenna on the roof. The developers of Tower Verre would never ruin this building with nasty cheap elements.

What's with all that hatred? I personaly like 1WTC more than Tower Verre, although both are masterpieces
