You couldn't pay me to have office space in that building. Looks great though.

Ditto, but I disagree with Brian's 2nd statement. I'm shocked that the city of New York would let something so plain and architecturally sopomoric be built. The replacement to the WTC has to be just as groundbreaking, just as impactful, just as iconic. After all this is NYC, lower Manhattan, one of the most famous skylines in the world, so the new design must live up to that level of architectural design uniquness and genious. This proposed building makes me yawn.

I can bare the fact that it looks like a modern day empire state building. but can we have 2 side by side please.

you have to remember that the original towers were pretty dull too. an actual quote when the twins were built was that the 2 tallest buildings in the world were 2 of the dullest. the towers earned their icon title. do a little archetectual history. the original towers were fine. the wjust were'nt built to be hit by a plane that didn't exist for almost 2 decades after their construction.
