3 WTC Gets Updated Rendering, Loses Cross Bracing

New, 16 comments

3 World Trade Center just got a fresh new look, and it seems like a couple of you may not be too happy about it. The big change being the cross bracing on the front of the building is now gone. One tipster proclaims "they have dropped the x bracing on the building and the giant video screen both things that made this building the most unique of the new WTC towers. In my opinion Larry Silverstein has just ruined the complex for me ." Yikes! No need to worry, construction on the Richard Rogers designed building might not start until 2020 anyway. When it's done the building is set to be 80 stories (1,170 feet) of retail and office space.
