Donald Trump says that if people won't fill the buildings, to make a huge memorial park. But I'm betting that if future tenants felt safe in knowing that the towers were built stronger (not like the original one's weren't strong enough) and if the government restricted the airspace around the WTC complex as it does in DC, then I think the tenants would come back.

Yeah, cause the public really needs a skycraper to remind them that they're governments attempted to take over the world by killing it's own people. I am sure that's what the survivors and familes of those people who died sure want.
How about this, how about we make the thing into a damn memorial like it should be, and not disgrace the skies with something else that can be torn down with "two little planes" and an hour worth of burning.
Gee I wonder what kind of story they'd come up with nextime. Perhaps the jets will be filled with liquid hot "magma" [Insert Dr. Evil Picture] instead of jet fuel and that will make them fall down.
No but seriously folks, there is no need for America to make this into a huge thing. It should be a memorial, not to be re-raised and reused so that people forget the tragedy that was placed upon those people.
BIG, GREEN, OPEN, BEAUTIFUL MEMORIAL
Plain and simple,
The building is being promoted as the safest skyscraper in the U.S. According to Silverstein Properties, the owner of the building, it "will incorporate a host of life-safety enhancements that will become the prototype for new high-rise construction". The building has 2 ft (60 cm) thick reinforced-concrete and fireproofed elevator and stairway access shafts. The original building used only drywall to line these shafts. The stairways are wider than in the original building to permit faster egress. Steel columns are encased in much thicker fire protection, which consists of a medium-density, portland cement-based product that adheres well to the steel columns, among other advantages over alternate types of spray-applied fire-resistive material.[
