The pic above, isn't a pic of the base. It's an antenna. Somebody said that they should enclose the antenna with that

Then, before yours is finished, the engineers change all the real metal parts on the instrument panel to chrome plated plastic parts. Would you be just as happy with the finished product, knowing what was cost engineered out, but you paid the same price? Also, what did they do THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT??!!

They have announced changes to 1WTC, but I think there are probably many more that we don't know about.

That could be the cladding in those trucks under the white structure to maybe protect it from any possible falling debris.

AGREED! Im sorry. I know people get mad when we talk about the antenna. But its such a modern building,,, a 1980s style antenna will loot terrible. Look how Dubai incorporates the spires into the designs of their modern buildings. C'mon,,,, we can do better then this!!!!
