they should stop the construction of this tower at that point .

i think this building is more iconic , legendary today , in construction , with the red,blue,with lights in all floors and the big flag .

it's way more beautiful than the finished tower will be .


it can be a symbol of a city that never die

@dsohfan:"They should stop the construction..."

No, in no way. I think, it should grow, still it has his planed height.
It would look stupid, if they stop the constuction now, and put a spire on the roof. And think: They would have to shrink all the other towers, otherwise, the One WTC would be one of the smallest in the WTC Complex.

Beautiful building, btw

I 1000% agree with you. Stoping construction would be the worst thing that could ever happen

Btw, here is an update from the WTC progress webcam:

Is it just me, or has there been only little progress at the top the past few weeks?

Puuh...Good question. I think so too, but I'm not sure.
But it might be, that they think: "Now it's high enough, we stop the construction for 2 weeks or so, and make other things". I mean, there is not only the One WTC, there are some other things IN the One WTC, and so on....

The past month has been a slow one. The 81st and 82nd floors being done now only started a week ago so they have made some good progress the last week despite bad weather.

4WTC goes up faster than it used to and 1WTC goes up slower than it used to. I wish it would be the other way arround

As to why they are so slow this month I dunno but I doubt it is because they focus on interior construction. Steel erecting, concrete pouring, cladding and interior construction are all synchronized to work together as a team. At least from what I know, so if anybody knows better, please correct me

There's always a slowdown around the 9/11 anniversary. They'll pick up the pace again.

You mean if there are any tenants? If this is what you mean then there is so far 1 tenant, which is Conde Nast
