4 out of the 9 plans unveiled call for the tallest building in the world. Here are some images: [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan1new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan2new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan3new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan4new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan5new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan6new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan7new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan8new.jpg[/img] [img]http://ny1.com/pages/images/lmdcplan/lmdcplan9new.jpg[/img] I have to spend more time looking at them before I can make my decision.

#4 and #5 are the best of those.. They all beat the first set of 'official' designs the city came up with, butI've seen better looking designs.

What I cant understand is why no one suggests that we build them back just as they were. A big "FU" to the terrorists and America haters. Well maybe not exactly as they were. put some CIWS Phalanxes and a Patriot missile battery on the roof. And maybe the Kabaa in the plaza between the towers. So all the Muslims in the world would have to pray towards New York. The Kabaa could also double as a public urinal.

I saw these on a news site and one that's not shown is a huge building about as tall as the WTC were but way bigger/fatter, it was huge! It's the one I would pick. And I don't think any of these are under 1,000 feet. It's the one on the front of the slide show in the article.

Building them bigger than the last sends a better message. I hope we don't pussy-out on this one.

I dont care what they look like as long as there are 2 of them and they are bigger than the last ones.
