Exclamation NEW YORK | Twin Towers II | 1,515 FT | 125 FLOORS | VISION

The Twin Towers of the WTC were marveled by all. Because they were symbols of America's freedom they were destroyed. Many believed they should be rebuild t oshow our defiance as well as millions of others. Today we have that chance. A man named Kennethe Gardener has created a new Twin Towers plan that is taller safer stronger cheaper to build and supported by 9/11 families because it was designed partly by them. The plans can be seen at www.wtc2011.com or www.twintowersii.com. There is a fight going on to have them rebuilt at www.twintowersalliance.com. This is a proposed building. We will all find out how it goes soon. There is a good financing plan etc. The designer has it all worked out im just a supporter.

Here is a picture of the designer with his model



A picture of the new model

Do you really think that the Freedom Tower as it is now will be demolished to make way for the new twin towers?

Try having it built somewhere else in Manhattan, and perhaps give it a different color, a nice gold perhaps, or gold plated stripes would work also.

Not to mention that this guys so called design is so conveniently similar in so many ways to the proposal of Donald Trump way back when. Hey, if I didn’t know any better I’d say it’s the same exact one. Please, take this nonsense elsewhere; what you see rising, like it or not, is what you’ll be getting. End of story.

This project baffles me. The only resemblance these "Twin Towers" bear to the originals is the setback-less box shape. These towers don't even try to attain the subtle charm of the originals. If I were Minoru Yamasaki or the family of a 9/11 victim, I would be insulted.

Take this pile of trash away.

This is awful architecture.

And plus what's the antenna for? For show perhaps.

Which makes one wonder does this proposal even have the same stem like reinforcement that went all the way up to the top to enable more floor space by not getting too crowded with elevators.

This proposal is nothing but a cheap imitation that doesn’t even scratch the surface of the essence that the originals carried. Plus it’s lined on the bottom with condo buildings straight out of Palm Beach.

This is obviously not a serious proposal and this thread is going far beyond the standard beating of a dead horse.

The engineer has assured us he can build over what has been done

Ken was the one who designed Trumps proposal. trump just promoted it. Besides the freedom tower was picked in an illegitamate process by Pataki that crook who picked the FT because of political contributions. He admitted it in an MSNBC interview recently

The Twin Towers Alliance is very much a joke to the majority of people here.

Just look at the new pics. How do they not "resemble the origanals" There taller stronger yatta yatta. They cant just rebuild the originals exactly they did some 21st century updating

I had no idea this idea was still alive to be honest, I thought it had died years ago once SOM were appointed for the Freedom Tower.
How many people are still involved with the TTA?
Is it just a few die hard fans of the Twin Tower design?


I'm sure you know at this point that you know that there isn't a shred of hope in it happening.

So is that model for sale?
