How could this be redesigned? I thought it was safe from redesign because the base is already built.

Exactly. TriBeCa should not be brought to FiDi; there's a reason that they are separate.

Funny, I liked that the original complex avoided street level! I love the idea of being above and away from the traffic and sidewalks. The WTC, WFC, and 130 Liberty formed this fantastic elevated neighborhood connected with bridges and plazas; it was a great place to get away from all the hustle and bustle (or at least to look down upon it).

Great question! Why? Why? Why?

It's just awkward and bad, and that's from its best angle.

It sucks how 4WTC, the most unremarkable part of the original plan, is the only tower to not have any changes or cuts to the design to save money

Size really work bad with poor design.

Seriously, I wouldn't mind this design being 5WTC or 6WTC

even just having a copy of 2 wtc or 3 wtc would have been more appealing or taller version of it

Fox is the reason the design was changed in the first place.

It reminds me of some kind of insect from this angle...



Very disappointing! I liked the old design better.

So is the design change a mere alternate proposal, or is Foster's version scrapped?

If the latter, I'll find the nearest cliff.

Unfortunately Foster's is scrapped.

On the fortunate side, this current proposal is in the "concept" stage, so it's possible it could be changed before getting built.
