Ulrich, thank you so much for your comments. The link to the website for my building is below, which takes forever to download, but it gives more detail. Another cool site, www.peacetowers.com, under the night lighting section, is just the best...

The main points concerning the height of my building: the smaller part of the building will help relieve some of the sheerness of the original towers, and also that lower rooftop is there for extreme escape, along with designed ladders and ledges (gutters). The picture here is actually placed right on top of NYC artwork with the old twin towers in it...I just placed my building on top of it, to get the height right. Still, maybe it will look gargantuan...

You know, even though some people are fearful of high buildings, including myself, we gotta show the maniacs who blew up New York we ain't scared of them or what they do. That's why it's so important to rebuild. Besides, now is a chance to create something else in our world that is spectacular, brave, free, and, well, American.
