I agree with Vertical, the building is unique, i am sure in person it will be great. Overall, the design fits in better with the others, and whether you like it or not, this will most likely be built. So will the cup be half empty, or half full? Thats how im taking it.

This one tower is a 410m tall monster ruining the entire appeal of the complex. I a done being excited about the WTC now. The chance to build something really outstanding and original here was watered down to a minimum. These towers (except building 1) look like they could be anywhere else. There is nothing really outstanding and iconic in this complex IMO. They made so many mistakes planing this complex. Thankfully Calatrava delivered a masterpiece mall and subway hub. Kudos to him.

I actually don't mind the absence of the spire. They raised up the parapet to the where the tip of the spire would have been. No need to keep 2 figures for spire and roof height and now it's just a true 1,170' tower which makes the tower appear more imposing and taller.

They don't call it the financial district for nothing and they act like 21st Century Fox is going to be the only tenant in the tower. If you want a spot suited for a media company then go to Times Square or something anywhere but lower Manhattan, I'm pretty sure after a couple years when their lease ends they'll move out this tower and the WTC will be stuck with a tower only suited for 21st Century Fox. When Conde Nast a Major Media Company became the Anchor Tenant for 1WTC they didn't ask for a total redesigned of the tower they worked with the floor plans they had

Too bank-like? It's The Financial District. The towers are supposed to look bank-like! Go design something in TriBeCa.

Option B by far makes this tower look 100x better. It's just so awkward right now. I hope Silverstein and Murdoch get backlash and tone it down to something similar to this.
I would love if we got this, even though I wish they would do something uptop instead of a flat roof.

So sad.
2 wtc design was the best and they changed for an ugly boxy building.
I watched skyscrapers design in dubai or in china and
they are so beautiful.
In us it so rare building like some in china or dubai.
Just hudson yards towers , 1wtc ,one57 ,nordstorm tower and brookfield manhattan west are in the game in new york.
WHY THEY BUILD UGLY BOXY SKYSCRAPER IN US.
WHY WHY......

Would you calm the hell down. There are plenty of amazing structures in the US, let alone New York. Have you seen the Steinway Tower?

When Fox wanted to lease at 2WTC did they like the Norman Foster design, what was the purpose of leasing there Even when GroupM a large advertising media company leased space at 3WTC they didn't ask for a whole redesigned 3WTC, because they liked the tower the way it was, The same with Conde Nast and 1WTC. Since when was it up to the tenants to change the Exterior of another architects tower whose foundations have already been made, the only thing tenants are suppose to change is the space they brought inside the tower like Conde Nast Cafeteria.

I feel that even if this new design ends up being built the WTC will still be the centerpiece of Lower Manhattan. I don't think that the new 2WTC will ruin the whole complex all together.

It's just unfortunate that Foster's design has been thrown out. It fit so well with the rest of the site and carried so much symbolism. It was a true work of art. But we gotta live with what we got... all we can do is hope for the best.
