Correct you can see 1 Financial Square behind it.
Oh jeez, I can't believe i missed 1 FS peeking out from behind. Now the proposal is making a lot more since to me, as it were.

Correct. That's also true of Trump proposals and other supertalls that were never built. This one would have been a recently completed building around the time of the attacks. It's hard to get into the mind of a terrorist, but even if they had targeted this one, they probably would have went after the WTC as well, because of a failed attempted years earlier. But the 900 ft NYSE tower that was going to get built was another casualty of 9/11 in my opinion. It was canceled as a direct result of the attack and fears in the aftermath.

The antenna certainly could have used some work, but I don't think we've seen enough to give that type of judgment.

^^^The building would look better if it continued to a point.
Like a stretched version of the Transamerica Pyramid.

Well the Buildings atenna looks kinda akward, but 1 WTC's style of attena would sure make it look gorgeous in my mind
Abit more to the base would have been great aswell.

Maybe if this would have actually gotten built, the design for the Freedom Tower would be different

Assuming this tower wasn't the one to get targeted instead.

So we're already assuming a never-built object was the possible target of terrorist attacks? Hmm

This would’ve been a very awkward and imposing structure. It really in no way would’ve paid a complimenting factor to the Downtown skyline.

Well yeah, it'd be an attention whore. Honestly, Brooklyn needs a supertall, close to Lower Manhattan, but definitely not in L.M..

NY really needs a supertall like this. I'm surprised they didn't build it, especially during a peak of American economic might. It's a brilliant looking building, especially for the time it was proposed. It was ahead of its time with the solid glass curtain wall. A real shame, who knows when we'll see another proposal this dashing come along.

I'm gonna have to go with this. I don't like anything about the design, and it wouldn't have ruined the already ruined south side skyline of LM.

I don't know about ruining the dt skyline. With the new WTC it could have made an interesting 'gate' like the two towers in Hong Kong.

I don't care for the angles. But then, I don't like the Donald's hair either.
