So I was watching Oblivion with Tom Cruise this weekend and I got a little upset when I saw this view that will never be a reality. From the ESB.

Doesn't look bad from this angle at all:

I actually like the design now. It looks powerful especially in the picture posted above. I'll even say I like it more than Foster's design. Takes into account more angles than Foster's. I'm looking forward to seeing it built.

I like this angle even more, it is quite creative in a way. I really think this building looks better than Foster's 2WTC at street level but it still doesn't mesh with the rest of the WTC and I obviously like the overall design of Foster's version better.

I would like to see fall the plans for that Ensemble. Instead they should built a "Tower" no building. A Tower as a Symbol, that reduce the costs...2000m high.

It's amazing, give it a few months, and so many who didn't like the design at all are now okay with it.

I think it would be ok facing the other way, towards the memorial... but then I suppose those LED scrolling words would be kinda disrespectful if viewable from the memorial.

Not really

It would only be disrespectful depending on the content said

I love how you people are finding every excuse to talk shit Fox News, considering most of you aren't even American. In fact, Fox used to cover the construction of 1WTC every week from 2010 until it was completed. Also, they didn't commission BIG as the architect. All blood is on Durst and Silverstein's hands, with the Port Authority approving the changes to both 1WTC's spire and 2WTC respectively.

Still, you can talk shit about News Corporation after it split with Fox, because their logo change is as shitty as this tower change.

Before:


After:

Ummm...

Quote:
Lord Norman Foster, the 80-year-old architect of acclaimed buildings like Londonís iconic Gherkin, had envisioned a gleaming 79-story trophy along the Hudson River, crowned by a slanted glass roof divided into four diamonds. ... But James Murdoch [CEO of 21st Century Fox, the company that owns Fox News] didnít care for the building, which he thought was more suited for an investment bank than a modern media company. Thatís why Foster ended up being bumped aside in favor of Ingels, who is exactly half his ageóa wunderkind by the standards of the profession.

Us non-Americans were hating News Corp long before Fox News came about. Do try to catch up.

News Corp has a conservative mouthpiece in every country. So it's only logical that most people ragging on News Corp have heard of it. Fox News just happens to be their American mouthpiece. Murdoch is Australian, fwiw

As I'm gradually becoming on board with the Ingles 2 WTC design, I do wonder sometimes: how did Foster's 2 WTC not attract any financial tenants? If I was running a financial firm, I would've had them anchor that building in a heartbeat. And did any previous WTC tenants ever consider the possibility of moving back in? Guess they really stuck it to the terrorists there.

It's also been noted, that James Murdoch didn't care for Foster's 2 WTC so I guess the bragging the rights of HQing your corporation at the WTC matter more than any nice building design. Also from what I read, Ingles was really pushing the WTC location which seemed quite ego-driven considering that BIG is based in Lower Manhattan and Ingles himself resides in Tribeca. The recent Wired article also had him bad-mouthing Foster's design.

I think at one point One Vanderbilt was being considered for Fox but I am quite glad that didn't happen as I''m extremely satisfied with the KPF-designed tower (they almost always produce quality designs).

yes, not only Fox full of shitty propaganda like "I wasn't there, but I know" "it told me pair man who not say their names" - but you will absorb it day per day and you like this.
this is degradation of mind, came it style. can you compare 2WTC with some cool project in other countries? no. boxes, stacked on each other - this is XX century in better case, commieblocks. "I give you shit, and it must turns to masterpiece and sensation" - this is logic of Ingels. "Oh, shit, I really like it!" - say Silverstein and applauds bouncing.
look at project of Lakhta-center in Russia, for example and say, who is wunderkind - Ingels or British company who made Lakhta's designe.
for example, when Gazprom wanted to build skyscraper in the city center, St.-Petersburg public was outraged and the building was moved to the border city. so, where is New York voice?

If it was CNN instead, I bet nobody would attack them. Also, I bet CNN would have personally scouted Ingels to do the redesign, and it would look exactly inline with their Eurotrash refined hip multicultural anti-imperial Marixst views.

Considering my London-esque username and the fact you've only been here since July, I can understand your suspicion. However, I would never want to live in Greenwich Village, and think John Boehner was a great Speaker of the House whose name isn't funny at all.

Honestly, I Robert Walpole think should be unbanned. Sure he was a lolcow, but he gave some insightful information and pictures of NYC developments.

Never want to live in Greenwich Village? What? GV is one of the best neighborhoods in the world.

Anyway, I just thought of this, but considering how conservative "Fox News" is, it's impressive they're moving from an uninspired white box in the ultra white collar midtown manhattan to a progressively designed building, designed by an architect from a purportedly socialist country, in a now trendy neighborhood. Quite ironic.
