    Construction is to begin on 'Freedom Tower' on the spot where the WTC once stoodon July 4th.

    Its going to be 1776 feet tall.(independence year) And an antena that will make the building 2,000 feet tall.

    It will restore America's long lost but rightful title as the country with the tallest skyscraper which currently belongs to Singapore.

    They considered that but said it would cause too many bad memories. I guess I can see why they think that.

    Its not like this tower is going to be less than the WTC. Its going to cost several hundred million dollars and be the tallest building ever and plus this tower is supposed to be safer and won't cost as much to maintain.

    Rebuilding the WTC would be like fixing up a totaled car after your whole family was killed in it.

    An Architectural abomination. This has to be the shittiest plan i have seen in a long while, with a even shittier name. IT sounds like something that comes out of conjunction junction or those PBS cartoons with ben franklin. "Lets all go visit the FREEDOM TOWER! its the tallest in the world, and rightfully in the good old US of A!" The last 300 feet are some lame ass spire, only 70 usable floors, and it has the most uncreative look of any tower i've seen in quite some time, and im an architecture student. What we should have done is built Frank Lloyd Wright's Illinois tower, that would be fucking badass. He is the most famous American architect, so it would be fitting that he would build or tower, it it like a mile high, had the most outstanding architecture ever, and didnt have some retarted-ass name like "freedom tower." In any case, this tower blows. Period.

    I agree with Mamichuli as usual. I also agree with KrazyKomrade, which doesn't happen quite as often. ;)

    The new tower is unspeakably ugly and they resorted to gimmicky architecture to make it the tallest.

    They should rebuild the towers the way they were so the skyline would be the same as it was before the attack. It would also send a nice "fuck you" message to the terrorists.

    I don't know one New Yorker who doesn't agree.

    It is ridiculous that there are only 70 stories if useable space. It is cowardly.

    YES!! Exactly! That would be fucking awesome!!...

    ...if it is actually feasable. Would they actually be able to build a mile high building? I know Wright claimed it was possible, and technology has gotten better....? :confused:

    Ask a liberal.

    Krazykomrade, go choke on a triangular ruler.

    ...

    Nothing says fuck you like building a taller tower after the terrorists destroyed the tallest towers in the skyline. It also says fuck you to the rest of the world, due to its height.

    I don't care what it's called, I think the tower will look amazing. You have to admit, the Twin Towers were a highly unimaginative design.
