With common people I meant people who aren't skyscraper fanatics like us, which is the vast majority of the population so it's common to meet a non skyscraper fanatic but rather rare to meat a skyscraper fanatic on the street. With common I meant that they are the majority, nothing more

Btw, back on topic, if no tenants show up when can we expect the tower to go on hold. I can imagine that there still is a lot of work to do since there are 7 above ground retail levels that will be built right away

Pretty refreshing image, looking at the workers and the beam being put in place.

.........?

Does no-one find it a little embarrassing that this is an American city and the 2 best towers in the development are designed by British Architects? Let's be honest the American designed 1WTC is a cliched international styled design.

What does that matter? The Twin Towers were designed completely by a Japanese architect, yet they were treasured and loved icons in New York. It's not about who designs them, its about how they fit into the place they're being built. This and 2 WTC fit beautifully, and I have no doubt that when its all said and done they will be accepted as being just as iconic as the towers that came before.

To be completely accurate, Minoru Yamasaki was Japanese-American. He was born in the US.

But the architect's race or nationality is immaterial as far as I'm concerned.

Statue of Liberty? New York above all cities on earth represents immigration, opportunity and multiculturalism. I don't see why anyone would worry about architect nationality. Besides, didn't an American firm design the Burj Khalifa? (yes) The Shanghai Tower? (yes). So if you want to get down to it, Shanghai's best tower, and Dubai's best tower both are American architect designed.

1. WTC 1 is a fine design, very elegant in it's simplicity ... I think think this is the one most people will love once all four towers are completed.

2. I rejoice in the fact that Brit architects are winning major commissions. I lived and worked in the UK for a while, and believe me British architects were considered second rate for a long time ... even the Prince of Wales criticized British modern architecture for years.

3. As stated above, American architects are doing very well, thank you very much. Major projects around the world are being awarded to American architects and firms.

Last time I checked, it was the World Trade Center, not the American Trade Center. Leave your useless nationalism in the 20th century.
