Great pictures, Athinaios!

Does anyone know why there is a vertical row without glass above the western elevator, as seen in this picture?

I'm pretty there entire vertical row is missing even under the elevator. Otherwise they have no way to attach the elevator to the side of the building. They will fill the missing glass panels in when the elevator shafts are taken down.

Check Carlos' updates at SSP, he has some great pics showing that column.

Oh and that pic doesn't belongs to me, it belongs to SPS101.

*I'm not sure if the column splice is 4' for that core column, seing Carlos' pics it looks like the splice is about 1/2 the total floor height. Maybe 6'... don't know..
Going over there now to see.

Going to need to catch up on a few missed weeks of updates now.

I didn't post them because they aren't the final product, a bunch of work still to do.
I wouldn't call them renders either. They are "renderings" and "illustrations". They are essentially the same exact thing, same difference.
Regardless, nice work.

I have a few questions? Let me add the tower has risen beautifully and has a life of its own. I flew into newark and had a chance to take a glimpse of 1WTC from the Jersey side and it stood out of the pack. Has constructed begun on 1 world trade center again? The official roof height still remains at 1368'? I noticed on Kanto's SSP diagrams that the top of the telecommunications equipment sits at about 1400' is this correct? Any idea when 1WTC will top out? And when the spire will be completed? I have followed this thread since the beginning keep up the great posts, pics and diagrams.

Hi Lex

To answer your questions:

1. It would appear the construction is back on track. But don't quote me on that
2. The actual roof is 1335 feet. The parapet is what extends to 1368 feet
3. Yes. The telecommunications ring goes to 1401 feet
4. The roof is expected to top out late this year/early next year
5. The spire will be finished 6 months after the roof tops out, somewhere during Summer 2012

Hope I could help

1 WTC standing tall

New York's tallest building is still under construction, but it's already scraping the sky. At 76 stories, 1 World Trade Center, the crown jewel of what was once a bleak and dreary pit, is already the tallest building in downtown Manhattan.

"It's the real thing," said Julie Menin, president of Manhattan's Community Board 1. "Now you really see it. People come downtown and see a gleaming building rising from the ashes."

Once dubbed the "Freedom Tower," the new superstructure will reach 105 floors and a symbolic height of 1,776 feet.

So it's not called "Freedom Tower" by anyone anymore? Would be a pity, somehow the name incorporated a lot of American spirit.

No, it was a cheesy, manufactured name that came about in the face of overwhelmingly blind post-9/11 nationalism.

I bet many people will continue to call it Freedom Tower. Even though that name isn't official anymore, it has a life of it's own now. It will be similar to the old Twin Towers, which were not usually called 1WTC and 2WTC, but North Tower and South Tower. Nicknames are easier to remember than boring official names
