This building I think will rule the skyline more then 1wtc. This is a more unique building in so many ways. Not the same height or as tall as 1wtc but just look at it.
I have never seen a skyscraper shaped like this. I like this building the most over the other wtc buildings.

Imagine if this was taller than One WTC.
Just imagine how incredible that would look -- it would certainly make a statement on the skyline.

I further predict that this will be one of the most photographed towers in the city for many years to come!

Ever see the smurfit-stone building in Chicago? it too has a slanted roof, and it is an Chicagoan landmark. Yet it's REALLY short! Imagine how awesome the massive 2wtc with the diamond roof will look!

Yes, I know exactly which iconic tower in Chicago you are referencing!
That tower design proves that it's not about height, but design!

I also agree with you -- just imagine the level of excitement when Tower 2 is built!

Everyone will be smiling!

If it was taller, the angle of the diamonds would increase, since the planes point to the footprint of the original twins.

I hope they never, ever, ever take the metal facade fins out of the final design for budget cuts. It would ruin the tower for me and it'll no longer look anything like the twins facade anymore.

I agree I want this building taller, absolutely. In the same height as 1wtc or higher. I don't see all the fuss over 1wtc. Yes this building will probably be the most photographed building in N.Y, when it's completed.
I am more eager to see this building rise than 1wtc. I have never liked 1wtc, very unpersonal building. This building is the right opposite.

I will take more pictures of this building then 1wtc.

They removed the cranes, so this isn't going higher for now. They're probably just getting the site ready for its slumber.

Concrete on deck was poured in the trading floor area. The sidewalk shed along Vesey St. is also being dismantled.

It's all dependent on whether or not tenants are found. It might take at least 2 years to build the tower itself, but until there are tenants, it won't be built. Since the economy is gradually getting better, I'd say the chances of finding a tenant are increasing.

Key word - gradually. Seems like this past week the economy is gradually getting worse.

The facade is pretty similar to 1WTC and 4WTC. The revised design scrapped both the standard intermediate spandrels located every 2 floors and the bigger intermediate spandrels every 5 floors. The glass surfaces are now completely flat and smooth, with 1' stainless steel vertical fins potruding the facade, these were added to link Tower One's simple facade with Tower Three's exposed structure.
