Although it's polished, I don't think it's the real proposal (unfortunately).

This is BIG's proposal's rendering from Tribeca, which obscures 3 WTC as it should from that angle...





In the new rendering 2WTC is totally in the wrong spot. That would be a major screw up that no respectable commissioned rendering would do right?

Me too! This looks great. Foster's original diamond topped tower was my favorite but this looks good too. Anything compared to BIG's "Big Mess".

I REALLY hope the diamond design gets chosen! This new design feels like they stuck a bunch of Central Park Towers into one massing with terraces added throughout its design For being the second-tallest building at WTC, it lacks any real originality or unique attributes that would be worthy of calling it 2WTC, imo It's better than BIG's design, but that's not saying much.

Yawn! Not liking this one too much. Too boring and simplistic IMO.

Neither of the original towers had much originality or unique attributes either. But just like the current towers, that had absolutely nothing to do with being "worthy" (whatever that means) of calling it 2WTC.
