New Towers At World Trade Center Site
September 7th, 2006

Designs for the three towers surrounding the spot where the Twin Towers stood were released today, showing a 78-story tower with a roof sliced into four diamond shapes (which would light up at night) by British architect Norman Foster; a 71-story tower topped by 100-foot spires at each corner by Brit Richard Rogers; and a 61-story tower clad in perforated aluminum by Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki. All three would be shorter than the Freedom Tower.

    A 71 year old tower? What, are they going to float it in on a barge and wheel it over to the spot?
