Heres a paper model of 2WTC me and skyscrapers144 have been working on, you can get the net of the model and build it if you go to the creative corner, and then to paper models, and then to my thread Tim's Models.

I think its an absolutely stunning building, but the only thing going against it is that I feel it would work best as the tallest building in a cluster. It almost looks out of place with all of the other flat top buildings around it.

So, the best tower is under construction now! At least, that's my opinion. WTC1 is the tallest, but I think WTC2 is better looking. What a construction site over there!

From lowermanhattan.info, Dec 14,

2 World Trade Center

3,200 yards of concrete poured to date
1,000 yards of 3,000 psi mud mat and fill
Only minor amounts of rock excavation remaining
Turner erected the east and west crane bases
