I feel like the former design of this tower made it feel like a machine. Like a living creature. Now, it´s still kinda nice, but also a lot like "the other ones". Means, not REALLY standing out.

This angle shows how many thoughts went into designing the new complex. It fits 100% into the rest of the skyline.

I like 3 WTC's bracing; all these zigzags complement each other pretty well -- at least that's what I've been seeing.

I'm eager to lose the Woolworth's blindfold; cramps its style.

It's just a marketing thing for Fifty Shades of Grey.

That last photograph makes me yearn for new twin towers in place of the two pools, but each 1776 feet tall. Just take a moment and imagine how that would look. Seriously, imagine it.

The last shot makes 4 and 3 WTC look huge, same applies for the occolus.

To be fair, they are both incredibly massive and bulky, which only makes them that much starker in size.

Surprised they were allowed to build an apartment building so tall next door to be honest.
