This building compliments the Calavatra's new terminal.

I would love to see a rendering looking at this building from the memorials, especially the South Tower memorial. The view will be fantastic!

Thumbs up Exterior details and Bracing is what makes it!

The exterior detailing and bracing is what makes this tower extraordinary... unique! It will be one of the "BEST" worldwide once built... an instant supertall landmark ... similar to what IM Pei's Bank of China building did for Hong Kong

What's remarkable is... Foster's tower 2 will be another right next store... then you have Calatrava's station... another... it's like the WOW factor multiplied exponentially by 3!

I have to agree with Patrick, the details are a little too busy for me. I mean I'm all for exposed structural bracing (i.e. the beautiful Hancock), but this one looks a bit busy especially when view from an angle instead of dead on. Tower 2 is my favorite in the complex, but this is a close second, it could possibly have been my favorite if it had a little more conservative detailing. That's why I don't like Times tower, its too busy.

Other than that, great building, in any case I'd love to have it in Chicago!

There is an interesting contrast between WTC 3 and 4. 3 is very complex and detailed while 4 is very undetailed and smooth. It should be interesting to see them side by side with the huge contrast.

I think this one's actually my favorite. From top to bottom it's beautiful and interesting.

I didn't like it at first but then I looked at it again and changed my mind. It’s a really cool looking building.

Besides good looking, it looks pretty modern and quite stylish, as a building should be specially in NY

My impression of the rendering is that, overall, its fine. My criticism would be that perhaps its a bit too busy. On the other hand, size goes a long way towards making me feel better about it... it'll look beautiful once finished, provided the execution is up to par.

This is my favorite building on the site. I love the exposed bracing.

Definitely will be built.

I love the design of this tower. It's Rogers best work yet. If I had any concerns at all, I would say this tower is more fitting as a skyline centerpiece. I could see this dominating the skyline of a lesser city than NY. In the context of the trade center site, it's a touch busy compared to the other towers.

I would die to have a tower of this quality in my silly little town.

I love this building, I feel that it's impact is somewhat overwhelmed by its neighbors. Imagine this beauty in place of Bear Stearns in midtown Manhattan with the Metlife Building only about reaching the height of its lower tower setback. Wow!

Even the "stubby" Tower 4 will reach the height of the top of the glass pyramid on the new BofA in Midtown.

A few years ago we would have been excited just to get Tower 3 on site. Now it's only 3rd tallest...

Anywhere else in the world this building would be magnificent. However, jammed in so closely to its four siblings all the detail on the building seems out of place. It should either be toned down to match the other buildings or they should go with a radically different glass color to differentiate it from the others.

This building is the one that has the most "stand-alone" quality. It doesn't need the other three. It could be built anyway in NYC or anywhere in the world for that matter and it would have been highly celebrated. But, as others pointed out this strength is also its weakness. I just seem to have the least in common with other buildings of the complex. Nevertheless, I don't want to see it altered in any way, not one iota!
