Ground Zero in Manhattan remains an empty lot as politicians and developers dither over its destiny. The proposed “Freedom Tower” won’t be ready until 2018, apparently - keep in mind that the Empire State Building took 14 months to build.
The Twin Towers Alliance has some advice: Build an identical set of World Trade Center towers, exactly as they were - and thus restore the “nation’s skyline.” The group has viable plans to build with existing funds, based on concepts from the late Herbert Belton, one of the original architects.
” ‘Twin Towers II’ was not created to oppose a design, but to uphold a uniquely American icon and the premier symbol of world peace through trade. Our project was never an act of protest, but an effort to promote healing. I have always thought of it as the inevitable result of a widespread national and, in fact, international longing to resurrect the Twin Towers,” structural engineer Ken Gardner tells Beltway.
“What has been most inspiring about this effort is how it unites people who don’t agree about much else. People frequently say that they don’t know anyone who doesn’t agree on the need for new Twin Towers,” says Margaret Donovan, co-director of group.
