Sorry this is off topic, but is tower 3 going on with construction and not stopping at the 7 stories?
Word over at the 3wtc thread on both skyscrapercity and skyscraper page that has happened.

I liked the old base at night but this isn't bad.

A combination of the new base and the old upper structure would be my choice.

I'll go for the new design too. The big steel crosses are nice but I don't think that design would have fit nice between the other towers.

The new base is actually kind of better Im sick of seeing those ornate piece of aluminum that hang off of all the new buildings in New York for example Bloomberg Tower has it. So does the base of timewarner,and few newer condos in midtown

In my opinion, the best scenario would have been having the original design of Three and the alternative facade design of Foster's tower.

From the look of it, the podium actually looks closer to the old design than the new :

I don't think that is the absolute outer perimeter. There will be a set of steel beams in front of that, eventually, I believe. Still, it does look similar.
