4WTC actually got a height increase. 3 floors, 2 below the setback, 1 above.

3WTC got a height reduction, and the central X bracing became Z bracing lining the edges.

I never knew that. I do know that 3 WTC got a height reduction. With this height reduction, it is more "humble" and accompanies 4 WTC, and not 2 WTC.

That's what I meant by the X bracing being scrapped. Just a BTW, sorry for not making that clear.

I'd be upset too, but I would try to find someone else to punch. I don't like punching old people.

Punching an 80 year old man doesn't appeal to me.

Oh, sorry. Whenever I think about the site I think about Durst. 82 is pretty old, by the way. At least Silverstein's rich. Do you want me to edit my last post?

Hopefully he lives to see his buildings fully under construction.

Yeah, a bunch of people here are douches to him because they can't wait a few extra years. My God, the guy's in his 80s working his butt off just trying to get it done, but all people do here is bite his head off.

2WTC would more likely be completely cancelled than have its diamonds removed, so I wouldn't worry about that.

If 2 WTC got completely cancelled, we would all cry in pain and agony like this:

I know. In 2006 when people still wanted to rebuild the twin towers they called Silverstein a crook because he spent 7 billion dollars to create 4 haughty buildings instead of spending 3 billion to rebuild the twin towers.

If he rebuilt the twin towers he'll be keeping 4 billion dollars in his pocket. So, really, he's not a crook. At least HE wasn't the one who scrapped the randome (I'm not a big fan of the randome, but a lot of you are.)

All too true.

I'll feel bad for him if he suddenly died. The man has worked his butt off and for him to die would make me feel as if he couldn't get the job done.

Show some respect, people.

He's the reason we can have 2 WTC. I think he just bought the WTC when it got destroyed, and I guess he feels that he needs to get it fixed. I thought he was 50 or something, but I've never been able to guess ages.
