Just think about with the cranes fully erect 1 wtc is only around 1,200 feet it gives you a full perspective how huge 1 wtc is going to be.

The cladding looks like a huge mirror from distance. The reflections of buildings around are just awesome! Can´t wait till it´s complete. It will be real king of Manhattan skyline.

Well your low opinion of the "twins towers" doesn't reflect the opinions of everyone.

To me there was nothing special about the design of the Twin Towers except the height. If it was built shorter (below 1000 ft) it wouldn't look good at all. I grew to love it even though the design was kinda plain.

I don't have a low opinion of them: they were great but according to the 1970's criteras. USA show to the world that they can build somerthing even better after this attack because it is an awesome country with brave people.

Finally someone is posting a interior photo. Almost getting bored of all the stunning pictures from the outside whilst the inside work is also interesting. @ which floor are the construction crews now with the interior?
