Is the updated design now really the final design or it is possible that they will change the design again?

It is possible. The design can change because it's only the antenna section.

Which means that construction of the tower is not affected whatsoever.

It's more than 100 floors because I've read that an observation deck will be on the 102nd floor.

I think it looks woeful.

The glass base is better bust still pretty drab. The whole street level integration is just third rate.

The top is ghastly with the George Jetson 70's ring and misplaced mast that looks like it doesn't belong there, a first year designer could tell you it doesn't match the building form beneath it.

The actual tower is generic and looks like some cheap SWFC knock off. Where is the creativity? where is the innovation? where is the inspiration?

All in all a lesson in mediocrity. That's arrogant Childs for you.

Oh well, can't say it was unexpected. Let a hack design it and you get hack results.

So are they counting the spire as part of the total height or not? If it is, I will feel disappointed because it is like they cheated to get up to 1776ft when it is really much shorter.

The spire is counted because the roof height will be exactly the same as WTC 1.

Come on someone else had to see CLICK and yell out holy shit and then have everyone look at you, and ya, it cheats big time too with a 400ft spire NYC has been getting their height lightly by adding spires, it's still tacked on to not incorporated like ESB or Crysler. Fordman Spire still beats this one oh and so does Sears, anyone notice the new China builds have a flat roof thats awsome im starting to like China more.

The Twin Towers were the best design.

It's the so-called "families of the victims" (they are not actual victims themselves) that are crying to prevent the twin towers from returning.

^ Maybe they'll start in a few weeks, maybe months, but steel will be up before the year's end.
