Those are the best renders I've seen! The view from 1WTC!

Unfortuneatly, the view of the distorted diamonds doesn't do it for me. They should be uniform. If that is what they will look like in reality.....dunno anymore.

if you are talking about the top section, i have to agree.
i always thought it's going to have some kind of 'plain cut', if you know what i mean.

Yep, exactly what I thought!



However, if I had a company I would try to rent some floors there. What a stunning location! Next to the Hub, sorrounded by wtc3, wtc1 and wtc7, you will be able to see ESB and Brooklyn Bridge at the same time! This building will offer the best views in New York!
If they don't find enough tenants I hope they transform it into a observation tower.


btw. the thread title is still wrong :p

Are those top windows just top windows, or will they be able to turn open? For somekind of climate control use. Or, might they be sun collectors? I can see on the renders that it looks just like big windows, but that's just the render look. In short: is this it or will there be another use in the future. The design is by the way very nice! I wonder if something like this will ever be built in my city...

The entire top diamond and portions of the next two lowest diamonds will have windows or grills that cover the mechanical equipment. The rest of the diamonds will have offices. What a view.

This is a glorious building. Significantly better than 1WTC in my opinion.

Make 2WTC a little taller, replace 3WTC with another 2WTC and it would be perfect.
