2WTC is my favorite out of the bunch, i hope this one will face no redesign (unless it is upwards of course haha)

Hopefully they'll land a major tenant first. Much more important right now.

yeah.... make it a little taller to match the height of the 1WTC... that'd be soo awesome... we will have our TWIN Towers back!!! albeit not exactly identical, but identical in height, that would be good enough and look like Twin's... the new and improved futuristic Twins!

More like four different towers, instead of two.

I 1000% agree with you. 2WTC should be as tall by roof as 1WTC

i always thought of 2WTC having a similar height but a slice of from being a box building and this slice always looked like it represented that scar that the building's history carries on, i always loved to look at it like that and that may be one reason its my favorite project in new york right now

F-it yo! Make it a MEGA-tall Silverstein... we all know you want to

Making it and changing it to a 2100' design would work well and be super simple with this design too.. as the building just goes perfectly straight vertically upwards anyways, with its' "special/unique" feature on the very top with its' "slant"... just add more floors and about 700' and we will all be very very happy.

new York isn't going to go Dubai all of a sudden with unneeded heights. Plus that'd be WAY too expensive.

No, I'm not 8...I'm 9

Well..of course 2000 is impossible; I just like being optimistic and kinda kid around it lol..

...BUT, 1455 is totally possible! And you know it! 100 more feet, that's it! And it'll be truly the tallest in the USA and west-hemi. They supposedly added 50' to the 4WTC without many peoples knowledge, and Easily... so I am sure 100' more on the 2WTC is very very plausible or possible.

Are you 12, mentally challenged, or both?

Why can't you grasp the fact that "just adding some more floors" or "adding a spire" to this building or that building would always cost *millions* of more dollars, now in a bad economy to begin with, and could possibly negatively affect the structural integrity of said buildings?

Look at the top of this tower. Exactly how would it be "easy" to add 100 feet to the top and maintain the design and proportions?
