    "We are pleased to unveil our design for Tower Two on the site of the World Trade Center, a building that symbolizes the renaissance of New York on the skyline while also re-establishing and reviving Greenwich Street at ground level. The crystalline top of the tower respects the master plan and bows down to the Memorial Park commemorating the tragic events that unfolded here. But it is also a powerful symbol of hope for the future. The dramatic height of the tower celebrates the spirit that has historically driven Manhattan to build tall, and the diamond-shaped top will be a crowning landmark on the city's skyline."

  This fabulous skyscraper will enhance the Freedom Tower and whole WTC. I love the crystalline form and diamond shaped roof. I hope this elegant building is constructed soon. We need to move forward.

  As a surviver of 9/11, I feel that the best memorial to those who died is to erect two new 1400 ft office towers on the foot print of the original towers.
