    Actually the developer, Larry Silverstein changed the name because 1 WTC is the proper name and it's his decision.

    Right now there are 3 tenants.

    Conde Nast
    The Federal Govt
    and a Chinese Investment Firm

    Which one of those is offended by "Freedom Tower"?

    It was changed because it's a corny douchy name.

    People forget that the WTC was a "flop" when built and went predominantly vacant for the first few years ( as was the empire state building). Wasn't until the mid 80's that the buildings really filled with private tenants.

    Two world trade, in the late 70s early 80s was almost all fed and state govt.

    In a few years..the building will be a huge success.

    While the building does represent resilience and determination, its only right to replace 1 World Trade Center with 1 World Trade Center.

    Some of these pictures are mind boggling.
    The new WTC looks gorgeous imo. The original replacement designs were awful.
    So glad they changed it.

    On a related, if anyone has Netflix, throw Man on Wire on the queue. Amazing account of Phillipe Petit's WTC highwire walk in '74. The interviews with the responding officers are awesome.
