Not sure if this was reported but the Port Authority posted pics about 6 days ago from April.
Yeah, they were posted here...

The June 2007 issue of Esquire has the 4th installment of "The Rebuilding" series, this one named "The Steel". Not much new or interesting except this:

"The Port Authority, a billion over budget and panting hard to find a private-sector partner with deep pockets, has quietly renamed the thing. Hello, One World Trade Center. Farewell, Freedom Tower."

One World Trade sounds cleaner. It makes the WTC seem more unified, rather 1 building having an exclusive name. I like it.

Speaking of cranes.





These pictures do not do it justice but standing by 1 Liberty Plaza looking towards GS, there were exactly 12 cranes of varying sizes and functions. It looked rather impressive

Yeah, whatever

The address was ALWAYS "1 WTC." This is the same sort of accurate journalism that consistently gives wrong floor counts, height figures, etc.

2007.. five and a half years later and we finally get a forest of cranes.

And that 7 WTC.. it may be just an unimaginative box (well, ok, a parallelogram) but it sure is a good looking box. ROI meets Brooks Brothers.

They're not talking about the address, they're talking about the name of the building.

It's STILL named Freedom Tower, and will always be because of it's symbolic height of 1,776 feet.

You know, the Declaration of Independance for freedom, signed during that year on July 4.

Don't believe the hype. This building has always been One World Trade Center. It's still the Freedom Tower, yes, in name. Even the other WTC towers won't be called what they really are (Freedom being WTC tower 1, Fosters being WTC tower 2, etc.)

REALLY? NO WAY!!!! I prefer 1. All of buildings are equally brilliant. 1 should'nt stand outand become more popular just because it has an antenna that makes it taller and to the fact that it is the "Freedom Tower".

Viracon Awarded Glass Supply Contract for Freedom Tower in NYC

Mon, 07 May 2007

Benson Industries of Portland, Oregon, who was recently awarded the curtain wall contract for the World Trade Center Tower One, has named Viracon, Inc. of Owatonna, Minnesota as their glass supplier for the project. The World Trade Center Tower One, also known as the Freedom Tower, is being developed by the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey and will be constructed on the site of the World Trade Center buildings destroyed by terrorists in 2001.

At 1,776 feet tall, a tribute to our country's freedom with the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, the Freedom Tower will be the tallest building in North America when complete.

More on the Freedom Tower...
http://www.panynj.gov/pdf/Fact_Sheet_for_Web.pdf

Quote:
A public observation deck on the 102nd floor, a skyline restaurant on the
100th and 101st floors
and an antenna mast rising to an iconic height of 1,776 feet. All floors will be served by elevators. The Skylobby on the 64th floor serves as a dramatic entrance for the office floors above. A loading dock with five bays will be accessible from Washington Street.

Yeah, whatever!

NYguy is right!! Life IS rough. Deal with it. Wanna change it? Try getting past the officials.

They'll laugh right in your face, just like I'm doiing right now!

Who took that pic above? It makes all the towers look short and stubby!

With the PA officially (even though it was quiet) changing the name, this is a sign of things to come.

The trade center was known as different names to different people before and after the attacks. I suspect that it will be the same when rebuilt. It might be that only rubes will call it Freedom Tower.

Who, or what are rubes?

The tower had a few different names earlier, I think. One of them was the Vertical World Gardens.
