New WTC Tower Design Made Public

The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation unveiled its new design for the "Freedom Tower." It's the skyscraper to be built where the Twin Towers once stood. The original blueprints were re-drawn to satisfy security concerns. The tower now will be set farther from the street than planned, and its base will be covered in steel and titanium intended to make it blast-resistant. The building is set to open in 2010.
