For those that have seen my Chicago model thread, you know the deal. For those that haven't, 2nd link in the sig.

If you remember my first model, you're awesome, but this is a brand new one. The old one was saved in a file format that doesn't transfer to my current software. However the premise is still the same. I am not planning to recreate all of Manhattan or NYC with this. The model will focus solely on the WTC site and a 1-3 block radius around it. It will be improved as new information on the towers and lowrises become available as well as when I feel like working on this.

Now onto the renders.

Overview


Broadway and Vessey


Fulton St. Wedge


Grenwich and Fulton


Grenwich and Liberty


West and Liberty

Hmm. I never got the particle effects working. I tried a couple of times, but since I really don't use them or need to use them, I gave up.

Great pics, STR!!

The other towers look a whole lot better than those ugly ones that His Excellency
Ambassador Libeskind had wanted.

the last pic looks good but that triangle shape i think spoils it, and those other towers, but seeing that last pic can you imagine if the was two WOW it would look like the north and south towers. would have been great

haha, i agree. for towers 2, 3, and 4, they might as well as build larger versions of the new 7 wtc instead of having to wait for other architects to finish the job of designing them.

I think you got a good point there, 7 World Trade!

Having other architects assigned to do those other four towers seems to just s-l-o-w things down even more to me!! :eek2:

But it also signifies that all leftover creations from the Libeskind design will be gone for good!! His ugly design of the Freedom Tower was unbuildable, and so the other ugly creations for the other towers are probably unbuildable as well. :cheers:
