Obviously the freedom tower is much better, the spire looks like a giant vibrator sticking out of the ground.

Yeah I like 2 WTC much more than Freedom Tower. I like 175 Greenwich (3 WTC) too.

Left to right, WTC 1-4:

I LOVE 175 Greenwich and thankfully they're increasing the height! (My favorite design) Hopefully it will be nearly as tall as the Freedom Tower.

I like some of the other WTC complex buildings better than the Freedom Tower as well. Besides its height it seems kinda bland.

The entire complex though will look great once its all completed. All of the buildings compliment each other and will definately make for a great tourist destination.

As for the Spire, I don't think some people can picture how the cladding will look as the massive building twist to the sky. Hopefully nobody gets blinded driving down Lakeshore Drive during the day.

I think 200 Greenwich is better then Freedom, 200 just has a real unique futuristic look.
