Awesome news! Now let's hope we don't get one of the "generic" buildings envisioned in the very first Freedom Tower design:

"Significant Modifications"? Not sure about that at this point. I hope they don't screw the design up too much, God forbid.

Significant modifications- I bet we will see something boxier and less elegant. The roof detailing will likely be reduced or removed.
Not that I expected them to proceed as originally planned.

I wonder if they will salvage the existing foundations.

Yea, considering that the top of WTC is unfinished I wouldn't be surprised if they cheaped out. I remain cautiously (like really cautiously) optimistic and really am just glad something in the 400 meter range will finally fill this gap.

Knowing Larry, the tower will be fantastic. Larry is well known for his interest in design.

'They' being totally different entities between Tower 1 and 2WTC, not sure what relevance the spire's unclad nature has here.

I imagine they will keep the foundations, so the plan/footprint will not change much. I'm guessing most changes will be to the facade, overall massing, and tower top if there are significant changes at all.

I think that's probably the biggest reason they're returning to Foster's design—the foundation is already built. Ripping that up and starting all over wouldn't just take significantly more time and money, it would likely infuriate Westfield, who refused to even put retail space in 3WTC until the tower portion was completed. Imagine ripping up the mall's HVAC!

Now that I think about it, the best aspect is the fact that the foundations are ready, so whenever they're ready
we might end up seeing layers and layers of steel sooner rather than later.

True, if this one gets a purely steel structure instead of a concrete/steel structure we could see this rising as fast as One Vanderbilt and top out in about 1,5 years time from the start of construction. Its about time the site gets done.
