Darn, it is going to take a while to get used to not seeing the favorite part of what was my favorite WTC building. I loved how complicated Tower 3 looked, it also helped me appreciate the simple facades of Towers 1 and 4 much more. Now I don't know how I feel. Maybe some amazing new renders by STR will help me get a grip.

Let's just hope UBS signs and this tower is confirmed to rise without stopping, even without it's X-bracing.

They should remove all the bracing from the building.

The X-bracing really made 3WTC stand out from the others. It also made the minimalist designs of 7 and 4WTC all the more apparent and beautiful. What a shame. After all the hard work of getting these towers under construction, now shouldn't be the time to start cutting corners. I hope the architecture critics in NYC raise some noise.

I'm not sure how I feel about Tower 3 by itself now.

But I think I like it more as a complex now. It makes all 4 buildings look more alike, giving them a sense of unity. Before, Tower 3 was so different and separate from the other 3. Now they look like they might've been done by the same guy.


But is this absolutely, without a doubt, true?

Garbage.

Really hoping that Tower 2 doesn't get value-engineered as well.

Me neither. It looked like a miniature Willis Tower to me. Getting rid of the x-bracing fixed that.

This whole WTC thing is pretty embarrassing for the US really. Should've put their foot down and got their shit together a long time ago, and made this a priority instead of ******* around.

I know it is a stretch but is there a way would could contact silverstein or silverstein properties to voice our opinion to him. This is the world trade center not a random development this site deserves the best not dumbed down versions of the skyscrapers. I kinda expected screw ups from the PA but Larry has normally been good with developments and being honest, he better make a press release or statement today!

Well, the bracing is still down the sides. I guess it has lost something, but I'm too bummed. It still looks nice, and in those renders the side diagonals look really bold.

To be honest, I found most of the previous renders rather bland looking, all monochrome blue, yeah the bracing was nice, but it didn't stand out for me, and I wasn't so bothered about this tower, but this bright and bold render has rather changed my mind.

I guess I'm in the minority.

Looking at the buildings excluding Two in a diagram, I'd really rather they just left Two out. The other 4 together would look great. Three is a good deal shorter than One, and that makes One stand out more. I think Two's height I too close to One's. If they made Two somewhere around 300m and the 3rd tallest, that'd be the second best for me aside from just not building it.

There's probably a good reason why the did that..But also, there's probably a better way to solve that problem too..They spinning billions in the air..I don't wanna hear that there's no way this could be done on another way..They should improve ******' towers as the time passes by, not making fun of original designs..
