#4 - This one is actually three seperate proposals by the same team.  It's a group called "THINK" that features international designers, including americans.  It's hard to tell what they're proposing here, though...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

#6 - Includes twin towers, that reach 1400 feet tall, with a huge promenade in the center.  Designed by a husband and wife team, who did some of the original (and more scaled down) proposals.

I vote for whatever tower is the tallest.

Man, this is America. If you knock down our buildings, we are only going to rebuild them and make them even bigger.
