    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.

    Do you have any idea how the economy, society and politics works? Obviously not.

    No, I’m waiting for General Tarkin to explain it to me.

    And as I understand it, problems grow around society and the workarounds for those problems turn into part of the society, so if the original problem is taken away then society (or at least a part of it) seems to be affected negatively.

    So what to do? Let the problems pile up, find ways to almost neutralize them but not completely because something, someone, somewhere out there, depends on this flawed infrastructure. Drugs, guns, shelters, rehab centers, medications, loans, etc.

    But I’m a puertorican, don’t pay attention to me.

    GRAND MOFF TARKIN!
    Is it sad that that is all I felt the need to comment on?

    They’re not considering it… sensibility won out and they’re building a somewhat useful new building instead:

    of course – so they’re building yet another ugly office tower. I’m not saying the steel thing posted here would have been good, but where has creativity gone?

    From what I’ve read and seen about the WTC rebuild, sensibility is the least correct term to define it with.

    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.

    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.

    Ask yourself: would a company want to set up shop in the “new” WTC? It would take a MASSIVE propaganda campaign along the vein of “Can’t let the terrorists win! We have to show them America can rebuild itself!” and even then it would be awkward. Can you imagine yourself saying the words “Yeah, I work at the world trade center”? Doesn’t it just feel “wrong”?

    No, it doesn’t.

    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.

    The point is, WHY would anyone want, nay NEED THIS?!

    Simply pointless, it has been proven the world can function without it.

    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.

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

    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… Read more »
