I agree with every single word you said.
I am a fan of BIG but his accomplishment with the pyramid are all but voided for me. You design a major skyscraper in NYC and you come up with this???
I was beyond excited for 2WTC to start rising again but I'd rather wait longer and see something else built.
And Newscorp and Faux News, how much more damage can these ppl make? Only them would drop an iconic design for this thing.

the base is just... awful. It's too massive, very unwelcoming. Imagine coming out from the PATH Hub, turning north and seeing this:

If BIG's design were the original, and I hadn't seen Foster's design first, I would have liked it. But honestly it's just not as good or memorable.

POX News will be an occupant of this new "design"? If that is the case I suppose this hideous design is fitting for FOX: Ugly, blocky and square.

Now my disgust can turn into utter loathing.

oh my what an insult to New York.... this design looks as if it was thought in 10min on top of somebody's knee... his arguments are quite interesting and the idea of stacking the individualism of the surronding city blocks actually sounds promising.. but it is terrible final result and an insult to the great, well achieved and logical proposal by Norman Foster!

In all honesty, How come Foster could not change the base like BIG's in that rendering in order to have his tower built?? It doesn't seem all that difficult. It has the same footprint and foundations!! I dunno.

I think a big reason why it looks so bad from north looking south is that all the boxes are the same size. It's awkward, if each box got taller and taller I don't think it would look as bad. It looks like a boxy right triangle, if the boxes got taller and the it wasn't so wide idk. It's hard to justify this design, I just don't get it.

I don't give a sh*t about the WTC anymore. This building was the main saving grace considering they didn't rebuild the Twin Towers like they should have.

And f*ck Fox News too, that right-wing propaganda hate machine.

This ruined my day. I cannot believe BIG designed something so inelegant and already dated looking. I thought he would pay more attention to the synergy of the WTC complex since all he does is talk about buildings being civic cornerstones that people are happy to be around. This is just arrogant.

The one thing I like about the new tower is the cladding, but I'm sure they'll value engineer that and f**k things up even more. Way to go.

I signed the petition along with 12 others, lets get this moving. Even though I doubt it will do much.

Silverstein has already updated their WTC website with these renderings, so it must be set in stone. Sigh...

This is the view I don't like.

It just looks like a bad photoshop. What the hell, Silverstein.

1) GET RID OF THOSE FÜCKÏNG CANTILEVERS AND MARQUEES.
2) Will Westfield still have those extra 100,000 square feet of retail space?! They'd better!
3) Why isn't it 1,362 feet tall if he wanted to pay homage to the twins?!
4) It doesn't fit in with the complex at all from most angles! It seriously needs to straighten up!
5) Why isn't "2 World Trade Center" written anywhere in sight? Labeling it simply as "200 Greenwich Street" implies that Silverstein just sold off the parcel to an unrelated project, and it sure appears that way from the outside!
5) WHY THE HELL SHOULD IT BOW TO THE AESTHETICS OF TriBeCA?! This is FiDi; this is the World Trade Center, a strong symbol of business and economy! It's not some modern artist's loft!

It wouldn't even be bad if you wanted Fox News to disintegrate.

if the cantilevers were to be done away with, this tower would look much better.

It's like the cancer of this design spread across Greenwich street:
