Both are roughly the same. The old site was just under 13 million sq ft, the new one is roughly 12 million (including 5WTC).

Could it be because that the recent U.S. military actions killed the instigator of the destruction of the original towers?

That's a possibility.

I asked this question before, and no one seems to know the answer:

At floor or height will the outline of this tower be a perfect octagon? It seems to me we are near or at that junction now.

^ I'm sure at least the half of the people here know the answer, it's just that this Bin Laden topic appears to be more important than the tower itself.

The perfect octagon is located on 72nd floor 880' where all 8 sides are 89 feet wide. Only 8 floors more!

I'm pretty sure the lighting in it right now is for construction purposes only. Once the building is operational, the flood lights will come down and regular lighting will be used. It will still be very bright because of the facade, but not like it is now.
