Smile NEW YORK | 200 Greenwich - 2 WTC | 1,270 FT | 80 FLOORS











Tower 2

NEW YORK TIMES-Dave Dunlap

Lord Foster’s Tower 2, with a rooftop of four enormous diamonds steeply inclined toward the memorial below, would be as high as the Empire State Building. Tower 3 by Lord Rogers, framed boldly by an exoskeletal framework of diagonal beams, would reach a pinnacle of 1,255 feet at its corner antennas. Even the smallest and subtlest building among them, Mr. Maki’s Tower 4, would be taller than the Citigroup Center in midtown

and

By virtue of its size and aesthetic bravura, Lord Foster’s Tower 2 at 200 Greenwich Street, between Vesey and Fulton Streets, may draw the most public attention. The 1,265-foot building is to have 78 floors, 62 for offices, four trading floors and the rest for retail and mechanical space. The uppermost of the rooftop diamonds will be a tripod shaped antenna whose pinnacle is 1,350 feet above street level, just 18 feet shy of the Freedom Tower’s parapet.

Construction of Tower 2 will require the removal of the Vesey Street staircase, also known as the survivors’ stairway, which is the only aboveground remnant of the original trade center that is still in place. It served as an escape route for hundreds of people on 9/11.

The main shaft of Tower 2 is to be divided by notches into quadrants, culminating in diamond forms that are meant to lead the eye down to the memorial plaza. The surface of these structures will be a porous screen on which snow and ice are not expected to accumulate; always a hazard on a steeply pitched roof.

Great pics!!

The top of Tower 2 still loks a bit reminiscent of Foster's previous design for
Ground Zero.

Cool, cool, cool! Now this is great modern architecture. And the top floor where people can go to is at 1265 feet. I love the windows on the slanted windows at the top!

Aluminum, I highly recommend you shut up because

A. Your posts in this thread have been no less than embarassing to read.

B. You are probably going to get yourself suspended/banned

C. You are totally spamming this thread with like 50 posts for every one someone else posts...

Oh yeah, this building rocks, admit it. We would all (including Aluminum) love to see this in Chicago...

Yes, that's what I said, Chicago, I, and just every other Chicago forumer, would feel fortunate to have this building built in Chicago... Read before responding, if you would have, you would know that I never said it is being built in Chicago, but that we would all love to steal this design from NY.

First post usually has the information on height you are looking for aluminum.

This tower is so incredibly beautiful. I really don't think there is a more beautiful proposal out there right now. Hopefully Silverstien comes through and does the rendering justice with high-quality materials.

I agree, especially since I find the main tower fortress like, misproportioned and unattractive. NYC could and should do much better than the current version of WTC 1.

Now is it artistic liberties on the renders or is the building's color really going to change from bottom to top? Because ive noticed it in every render but they don't do it to tower 3 or 1 inthe group shots so it might not be shadow. i dont know.

I've noticed that as well. I have to believe there will be a gradual color change for the same reason you mentioned. It's gonna be nice.

That hunk of concrete was removed from the site years ago. I believe it's already been placed in the memorial.
