The gorgeous new One World Trade Center (formerly known as the Freedom Tower) is still under construction but it's looking more and more gorgeous everyday. What's more gorgeous: the view of New York City when you're on top of the new giant skyscraper. Wow.
Ten years ago today, Chicago developer J. Paul Beitler — who once aspired to build the world's tallest building — told The Chicago Tribune that governments would cease to approve plans for skyscrapers, for fear that they would become "magnets for future terrorism."
I really didn't like the look of One World Trade Center—aka Freedom Tower, the tallest building of the new World Trade Center complex in New York—until today, when I saw this beautiful day-and-night time lapse video.
