Well, two sides of the building taper when it gets higher, just like 1WTC. And the glass of both towers don't differ that much from each other...

Glass looks pretty different for me, and for 1wtc, 2 sides of the building don't "taper", rather all four corners "taper" (it is actually a specific geometric form, I don't remember the name). And 1wtc does not end with 2 sides coinciding into a "blade", but ends flat into another square, just like it started at the base, only with a smaller area.

They're taking so long doing this floor that they've actually hooked up electricity to the blue netting floors that's the first time they've done that =\

Judging from this shot they have really picked up with the speed on the cladding.

There are 10 rows of legit cladding in your pic. The rest are obviously photoshopped.

When I get some free time in the next week I will be photoshopping some images of 1WTC accurately, so that we all have a better idea of what the finished product will look like, in comparison to renders.
