My rendition of the famous 2005 rendering:



I know it isn't perfect...

Not to fuel the fire, but I still wish there were Twins. Every time I see it, I think of the North Tower.

How the hell did you get the disco channel cam pic in such high resolution? I only can see the smaller resolution on the website. The link on your post is a still pic from a few days ago, and isnt updated.

Off topic, but let me post this as i thought this is related to 1WTC

Security alert as detailed plans of new World Trade Center building are posted online

'Official use only' documents show ventilation shafts, exits and rail tunnels below

Fears terrorist commandos could mount attack on replacement for the Twin Towers


Security fears have been raised over the new World Trade Center skyscraper's security after 'confidential' detailed schematics of the building were posted online.

Documents showing the locations of 1 World Trade Center's mechanical rooms, ventilation shafts, exits, elevators and stairs were posted on the New York City's Department of Finance website.

The secure schematics, described as for 'official use only' also show ground floor entrances and where the PATH rail tunnels will pass below.



Experts have warned that the documents could be used to plan a Mumbai-style commando assault or work out where to hide a bomb in a building described as 'the nation's no.1 terror target'.

The 17 downloadable Port Authority schematics also designate which floors can be leased out and which cannot. Dr. Maria Haberfeld, chair of the Department of Law and Police Science at John Jay College, said: 'We should not be sharpening our own guillotines.

Terrorists do train. They do countersurveillance, they look at targets and evaluate points of entry, points of evacuation.' The Port Authority said the documents were 'scrubbed' of sensitive information about 1 World Trade Center's electrical systems, plumbing, security and fire safety.



The agency said in a statement: 'The Port Authority provided scrubbed drawings to our consultants. While their default template is marked 'secure' and 'confidential,' the pictures in that frame are not.

Port Authority officials blamed architectural consultant Beyer Blinder Belle for using the 'confidential' stamp on the documents, which they say are safe for public use.

A source familiar with the World Trade Center architecture plans told the New York Post: 'These are leasing diagrams that are conceptual and spatial.

'They describe basic arrangement and location of space. They are typical for leases and contain no technical information.'

The $3 billion 1 World Trade Center, formerly known as Freedom Tower until 2009, is scheduled to open in 2013 and will rise to a symbolic 1,776 feet tall.

In 2008, the Port Authority vowed to review its security after a homeless New York man found hundreds of pages of confidential schematics in a dumpster.


The 2001 terror atrocity claimed almost 3,000 lives in New York

Media scaremongering. Everyone on this site knows more about the building than the document online shows. Zen posted a similar diagram nearly 2 years ago on this site.

I'll third that. It's got a sort of creepy vibe to it with the low-lying blanket of fog.

I love how the cranes and their cables form an almost perfect mirror image of each other, making the letter M! And you just happen to live in the right direction to capture it.
