    'Building of Freedom Tower'

    This building sounds like it is going to be some spectical to see.

    Here is a link to the story: http://www.kstp.com/article/stories/S9042.html?cat=1

    Re: 'Building of Freedom Tower'

    I like the new design better than the originally proposed one...it is much simpler and looks much more solid...the originally proposed one looked like a building that was created to glorify the architect...the architect who designed this one sends a simple message to the rest of the world...the building is back, standing tall and strong!

    Re: 'Building of Freedom Tower'

    I think the new design is awsome. I saw an article and picture on cnn.com earlier today. The light on the spire will be awsome to see. Probably my favorite thing, that I know of at this point is the fact that the building will be 1,776 feet tall. Which for some of that don't know, that was done because 1776 is the year that America declared its independence.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    I guess I am all for it, but I am really against it being a monument. I think we should build another business center of the world. I think by turning it into a monument we are letting them knock down the most important structure of capitalism without replacing it, but what do I know ... I do know architechts and hope that I actually get to see this befrore I am sixty (I will be 27 in October)

    It is going to be a business center. It will have a memorial on the ground level.

    It's scheduled to be done in 2010, so it should be done well before you are sixty supposed to be '10, will probably be '15 though.

    I like the message, but does anyone else feel that this would be a prime target?

    I am totally against this freedom tower crap. I think they should build the same exact things that were there to begin with. That would show the world how resiliant the us is. I would have loved to see the world trade towers again.

    They set it back furthur from the street than originally planned. The base is 200 feet of concrete and steel. They say it is bomb proof.
