I agree. I could barely stomach the smugness of the narrator of the video. It said nothing and the design does nothing to pay homage to the victims of 9/11 the way the original design of the diamonds did. The new design looks like Rupert Murdoc's old wretched middle finger. Looks like the base will have to be demolishd and started over to accommodate the stacked look.

I'm intrigued. The other buildings in the complex are so boring, and Foster's 2WTC looked like something from Dubai.

The base shape remains the same for the first few floors, so no demolition needed (didn't you see the diagram I posted on the last page?). What really rustled my jimmies was when he said he wanted to incorporate the feel of TriBeCa. My blood was boiling because the WTC is supposed to be everything that TriBeCa isn't. It's supposed to be the foil of TriBeCa, not accommodating to its style!

I think if anyone is spewing dog shit it's probably you. You are wrong 50% of the time, so what makes you think you are right this time..

God damnit. They cheaped out on 1 WTC's spire, completely dropped 3 WTC's spires, and are screwing 2 WTC sideways.

As much as this has really upset me, the comment section has brought a fine smirk across my face.

Imagine Bjarke reading the comments here.

A bigger version of the other ones. I am more upset that 3 WTC lost its spires than how this looks in the skyline.

And from the WTC website, the new tower is 81 stories, and it looks pretty final that fox is moving here.

"2 WTC is the capstone in the redevelopment of the World Trade Center and the final component of the revitalization of Lower Manhattan. The 81-story building will serve as the new headquarters for 21st Century Fox and News Corp who will occupy the lower half of the tower, housing their subsidiary companies and more than 5,000 people under one roof."

Rupert Murdoch sucks in every conceivable way! And that is absolutely on topic.

I don't think it looks THAT awful its not great though don't get me wrong but its not that bad from some angles. I just think it needs to be worked on a bit more. Just ditch the leaning look to it and it will be OK. least its 1340 to the roof.

The height is the only improvement. The highest occupied floor will likely be the highest office floor in NYC too at around ~1250 feet. Only a few residential floors and observatories are higher.

The love child of City of Capitals in Moscow and the GP Building in Atlanta. I don't hate the design of this tower it just does not belong at the WTC. If it was built at Hudson Yards I would be content.
