the only good thing about the new design is the terraces and the view of midtown from them.

Anyone who signs that is an idiot. Can't even spell decorative, for crying out loud!

This really is a shame. From same angles, it looks okay, mediocre, but okay, other angles, where all those boxes are seen, it's just hideous.
That tower does not fit in with the others at all and destroys the look of the complex.
It would have just been better to create a glass version of the South Tower then the garbage that's being presented.
Does Larry Silverstine have a say in this or what?

I really don't understand why 3 WTC doesn't have the spires on it..
I think if it had the crown lit up at night it would look way better

All your great renderings, Otie. What a waste.

At least we have 111 W.

The WTC made out pretty well all things considered.

This is a goddam tragedy! I dont understand how they let this fool design anything near the wtc! Also on a major saftey note... i saw one of the renderings has a unprotected staircase right next to the perimiter of the tower. What happend to all the saftey procedures with putting staircases and elevators inside concrete cores. P.s i had to make this account to vent my frustration.

Looks like Foster is raped twice in this project.

This what they should have build, the Foster design. Iconic, elegant, resembling the old WTC.


The current project is a mess. Designs keep changing and always for the worse, the project is still not ready after almost 10 years.

It's on YIMBY now, too...appears to have received a positive reaction there but not reviewed by Nikolai, so maybe he can come on soon and give us his perspective on it. From what I see hear it's going to need a ton of selling, but as I said I can adapt to it.

It's clearly noticeable tha this design was made in a hurry. Even if you look at the inside renders there is big mistakes in details.
Regarding the shape, looks overall much worse than Foster's proposal, but it might turn not that bad when seen from Hudson River.
BIG ideias are runnig out in the office lol
