Critics call WTC tower name change unpatriotic
Whoever has the naming rights, gets to call it. They pay for that.
I think they're calling it One World Trade Center. For me, if they were going to call it that, they should rebuild the twins or call it something completely different.
Seems to me the best remembrance is the capitalistic system. If someone pays for the naming, they get to do so, no conditions. Now, that is not without ramifications, Macy's has not been a 'hit' in IL because of the name change. No one calls Comiskey, Cellular Park, etc.
I think it's over the top to describe it as unpatriotic. Freedom Tower had a nice ring, but if they want to keep "World Trade Center" in the title for marketing purposes, then instead of "One", I'd prefer "United".
I like that they changed the name. "Freedom Tower" sounded nice, but there's nothing more resolute than keeping the name it had before a bunch of Islamothug pigs decided to commit genocide.
Frankly, if i was offered a job in that building i would decline.

um, i hope you realize tht is "the onion"
Since a memorial is being built there, why wouldn't they name it after what is being memorialized? It should have 'World Trader Center' in the title, imo. I don't get the 'One' in the title; I like 'United'. 'New World Trade Center' might be ok but . . . . some will take the 'New World' part and run with it I suppose. Why not something like 'Freedom World Trade Center' and make everyone happy.
Why would the name they use determine your preference for architectural style?
In other words:
Freedom Tower: okay to be one building
One World Trade Center: must be two buildings
Separate names with a comma.
