Not bad, not bad at all. I had a feeling this wouldn't be a flat top. I'm actually liking this whole "building on top of other buildings" idea. I still think it'd look much better built in Tribeca/Financial district, near 56 Leonard. It's really grand though; I just noticed how it almost mimics the twin towers' facade. This design doesn't appear to be official so lets see what happens...

Great!!!
Koolhaas,Gehry,H & DM and now Libeskind.It seems the deconstructivist trend has stuck in NYC.
Zaha should be the next.

oh hot dammmm. it looked good in the teaser pic; in the full render it just dominates the spot and looks huge. Maybe in midtown or lower manhattan. Not there though.

The deconstructed facade and tubular shape of the building is exactly what the future NYC skyline needs. Daniel Libeskind really hit this one out of the park with this skyscraper.
Ugh NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! This is actually one of the few deconstructive style buildings that I like. Looked great, I hope they're not planning on making too many changes on it.

SImply amazing. It is always difficult to put a new tower on top of an old one, but this one fits perfectly.
I also love to see the structure in a tower, escpecially when it is so elegant as this one.

Wow I just noticed the subtle homage to the original WTC's tridents.

Bravo Libeskind!! Bravo!

And may Elad be cursed if they f*ck this one up!

Dont fit with the current architecture. Accually it fights with the surrounding buildings!

The tower is way to bold.

Libeskind is seriously off... How come he comes up with such beauties as this or his proposed tower for Paris' 'Tour Signal' contest when he also signs rubbish like his first proposal for the new WTC Tower 1.

In THIS case: Hail to the man!

"Too bold"? Haha.

I don't know what you guys are thinking, but the first versions of the Freedom Tower were amazing. Of course, I'm talking about the ones with the diagrid shell. I don't know much about the others so I couldn't say much. I'm not sure if Dan was the one to design it or not. It was just that, yes, the first versions of the Freedom Tower were horrible - BUT only as the centerpiece Tower for the WTC site. Put the first FT anywhere else in NYC, and you have a new, loved icon, JUST like this tower.
