Hey guys! Smile

I have just heard from a friend that the owner of World Trade Center have decided that they will not build the new World Trade Center as tall as it used to be. Since not many firms are willing to become its tenant again.

Actually, I believe World Trade Center MUST be build as it used to be, ie: as tall as it was......... IF NOT EVEN BETTER AND TALLER!

Comments?

Do you guys think WTC 2 will be shorter than it used to be?

My own preference would be for an exact duplicate of the former one...but I think it would be difficult to find tennants.

Here's how I think the new World Trade Center should look:

This was just sent to me in an e-mail by a friend. At first, I didn't "get it", but then I saw how the new building kind of looks like someone's hand.

I would love to see WTC II built. My opinion would be to design it as close to WTC 1 as possible.

So... you want to see the attack again?

My idea: no more twin tower but a lone tower with same exterior design and bigger floor area "for better center of gravity" - also 119 floors for Sep 11.

I am in all favor of it being built, but I think they should make it a few stories shorter and have wider escalators and stairs(like 4-6 abreast on the stairs). And have everything in the building be a lot stronger.

Remember everyone, the previous buildings were incredibly strong and withstood the impacts. However, because of the massive amount of jet fuel feeding the fires, the steel reinforcing rods weakened triggering the collapse. Any new building will need to have massive new fire containment systems.

Hey, the WTC stood strong in bin Laden's first attack in 1993 so that is why bin Laden went after it again, except this time he was successful in destroying it. Rebuild it to its original form and make it a little stronger but change nothing else that would affect its appearance. We need to send those terrorists a message that the beautiful buildings can never be erased from the world.
