Plans were unveiled for Two World Trade Center from the Dutch architect Bjarke Ingels, and in my opinion, the building looks like it will be beautiful. First of all, it looks like a staircase almost and will have gardens on each tier. Second, it looks like it will do a great job representing and respecting the original WTC buildings with the help of the freedom tower in the NYC skyline, and lastly, it’s going to be NYC’s third tallest building after completion (1,340 feet!).
If all goes as planned (which it probably won’t) this building will be finished by the 20th anniversary of 9/11 so September 11th, 2021.
