It already looks immense to me. But I agree the glass makes a huge difference. It's going to look a lot better without the black netting.

Great building. Shame that last time I was in NYC it hadn't even gotten off the ground at that point, It'd be great to see it in person when it's complete.

first things first, core progress!

and for those interested, ive observed a few things progress despite the perceived lull in steel construction : external staircases have been raised, the external elevator has now climbed to almost meet the current summit, additional plenum steel has gone up in addition to what was added over the last few weeks, and most noticeably the cranes have been jumped in the last few days.

You can see how massive the core is compared to the floor space. For the twin towers, the core coverings were really small, since they were drywall only.

This shows beautifully the core. I am very happy that they made it so massive. Safety and strength are the most important aspects of a building
