    1. Why even consider this?

      The buildings used to be offices. Now they want to “invest” (read: waste) money on fancy-looking shit for butthurt dumbasses that will contribute next to nothing besides the magical disappearence of valuable money.

      Use the money on something worthwhile like a program for killing off bums.

    2. Beautiful design.It would make a stirring memorial.But face the fact.This is some of the most expensive and useful real estate in the world.It`s simply not a realistic proposal.

    3. So it’s basically FUCK MEMORIALS FOR THE HORRIBLE TERRORIST ATTACK THAT LAUNCHED THIS COUNTRY INTO A TWO-FRONT WAR. WE NEED OFFICES!

      • well, look at it this way: the whole reason it was bombed was that it was both a symbol of financial America and a large practical hub for the same.
        So I think it’s important for the structure to be exactly what it was before the attack on the inside, and a memorial on the outside.
        However, bstaples has a super valid point. The delay is ridiculous, and it’s getting to the point where anticlimax is almost the bests we can hope for.

      • Fuck memorials for the horrible terrorist attack that scared people enough to be manipulated into supporting two half-assed war efforts that continue to cost our country dearly in blood and treasure.

    7. daniel libeskind, the winning architect beat vinoly’s proposal..from then on libeskind’s proposal became only a ‘master plan’ (a guideline, subject to be modified)…as the turn of events didn’t or people fell out of favor from daniel’s original intent..

    8. Rebuild the Towers so they look the same as they originally did. That way, we can stop digitally removing the originals from movies made before 2001.

    9. Why would they be removed at all? Are they gonna digitally replace Sean Connery in the Bond movies after he dies too?

    10. I agree with #9 (except not for the purpose of being a convenience to the movie / CGI industry):
      rebuild the frigging towers to look exactly as they were, with the
      following exceptions:
      massive anti-aircraft batteries at top of both towers on a hair trigger
      (better that 1 or 2 innocent 747s gets shot down than for WTC,Jr. to
      get toppled again.
      massive concrete hardening of the foundations so saudi agents cant try
      to bomb it again
      massive surveillance so that anyone with skin color darker than cafe au
      lait and/or anyone with anything resembling a kaffiyeh/burkah/hiqab or
      sikh headgear (sorry, sikhs, you’re collateral damage) never get
      within 2000′ feet of the entrance (and certainly not inside, ffs).
      oh, and also everyone who enters undergoes “Gattaca” type ID checks
      and (almost forgot this one), place demo charges at the midpoint of
      the buildings so that IF a plane DOES hit the towers and causes a
      massive fire that would tend to weaken the foundations and allow for
      a plausible collapse of the building, the same conspiracy that knocked
      down the first WTC towers can again destroy the second WTC in a
      controlled demolition, under cover of terrorist alibi (win/win).

      Sound good? OK, lets get to work!
