The top of the building almost looks like the old twin towers did at night. Would feel good to have that back.

Wow great updates Otie, NYCD and DinoVabec!

Hopefully when 1WTC surpasses 7WTC, the WFC and its other surroundings, more people will become excited about this project! Then the tower will maybe become even more of an icon.

I dont think many people realize how clean this is going to look, they are doing such a good job. were extremely lucky that they are building 4 beastly buildings and the 1 WTC is going to be an icon. it will be in tv shows and movies dont worry

4. Informal . a boisterous, rowdy party.

I guess some of us are a little meek and mild

Well I am serious as a heart attack. We should really do this , it will be the ultimate tribute to the Former Twin Towers and the ultimate rebirth and completion to The New Tower 1 World Trade Center. I think we we should all get serious about this cause, it would be awsome for all of us to finally meet in person and enjoy in my opinion the best looking rebirth the world had ever seen since the renasaunce.

This and the shard are dominating this forum. Its looking awesome now and i love the shiny cladding. I can imagine these pictures dont do it much justice and im sure it looks massive in the flesh. Going to NYC on 27th April so will get to find out and will post lots of pictures on here

I'm still amazed its design, and suprised that how such a simple but kick ass design of structure have never been used for any highrise before?

There are a couple that are close to this design, but not exactly the same.

Shanghai World Financial Center building - probably the most similar to FT, at least the idea of structure.
