When Will Freedom Tower Be Complete?

Why werent the Twin towers rebuilt instead of the Freedom tower?

after the complete destruction of the WTC Towers, now in 2012, they are building also another tower called The Freedom tower ( of simply WTC 1)...But why werent the Twin towers rebuilts instead of the WTC 1?

1. Because we know now precisely how that type of construction can fail.

2. Because the towers as constructed in the 1960s would no longer be code compliant.

3. Because knowing what we know now about what happens to people trapped in burning towers, buildings will henceforth be designed with different life-safety features than those built into the construction of the towers.

By the way, they dropped the "Freedom Tower" name almost five years ago. It is One World Trade Center, same as the old one.

Who would be crazy enough to work in the Freedom Tower?

If The Freedom Tower is completed successfully it will be two things: the symbol of American resilience and the new obsession of Al-Quida. Terrorists wont eat or sleep until they bring that thing down. I would never work there, for any pay. Do they really expect people to work there when another hijacking is possible and the target is so appealing?

I would; to hell with the terrorists.
