I, so, hate THAT spire! Otherwise, One World Trade Center is another striking (new) icon for NYC.

You do realize that it's only about 49 feet taller than the North Tower's antenna, right?

Those renders are amazing, Otie!

I love that model. It looks so massive; yet gentle.
That's true, though it has a pyramid on it's top so it can serve the purpose of worshiping Ra

Why do they need the antenna and all those dishes on top anyway? Isn't there enough antennae around new york already?

Silverstein is a massive entrepreneur. If you're building that tall, you'd be crazy not to take advantage of the height by not installing communications equipment. Its largely about money, but also crucial to the building's operation as a bustling office tower.

I dunno but that's weird since in Hong Kong nobody instaled an antenna on ICC or on 2IFC

That's because in Hong Kong the antennae are on the mountains surrounding the city.

OH MY GAUUUHHHDDDDD!!!! looks sooooooooooooooooooooooooo beeautiful.

I now start to wonder if we would ever remember NYC and lower Manhattan a year or two after these are all being constructed as they sure will change the skyline of NYC so drastically into a way way way astonishing city that dazzles old and new residents and visitors?!

LOL. One skyline pic of HK is enough to see the mountain range. Don't tell me you haven't seen a single pic of Hong Kong yet!

Btw great renders, they indeed look very realistic. Also I'm glad NYCD is back!

Why say anything about HK, if you never seen pictures of it. NYC has lots of TV and radio stations. And ESB antenna isn't all that great.
