That seems much more fitting and "in your face" to the terrorists than a hotel and some office space.

These designs are lame. Making the WTC site into a ho-hum office complex is akin to saying "I won't aspire to anything anymore. Please don't hurt me". Why not just build a giant rock to hide under. Rebuild to at least what was there before. Or better yet: the same basic design, with structural improvements, and added height.

I am probably gonna get my ass flamed for this but what the hell!. You only live once. I appreciate the symbolism involved in building another structure but would anybody in there right mind insure another building? I mean in reality wouldn't this become the #1 target again when it is finished? Edited to add: By the way, if they do decide on another building. It should be the tallest in the world. Who has the tallest building in the world now?

Exactly..."please Mr. Terrorist man, don't hurt me. I promise I won't dare build any symbol of capitalism and freedom to annoy your radical Islamic senses!" simper, whine, pee my pants. What a bunch of pussies. Or, more likely, someone just looking to make a quick buck at the expense of making a statement. Easier just to put a mega-mall/office space/hotel complex and start taking in the rents than to put up a grand scheme building that says, "screw you Joey Jihad!"

Make them taller. Mount SAMs, as well as CWIS (Close-in-weapon-systems) on all sides. Load those puppies up with depleted uranium bullets... mugzilla

I know this is old, and I'm paraphrasing from an email, but here goes: "I think we should build the two towers back, with an even taller one between them, so that it looks like a giant middle finger pointed straight back at the fvckers who did this." FOTBR
