It's a small internal platform (barely 16 sq f) located at the section where the eight Kevlar guy wires get anchored to the mast. Only maintenance personnel will get allowed to access through a vertical ladder.

who here finds it weird that 1WTC is a twin tower replacement? It might actually be all 4 of the main towers that will replace the twins.

I really don't look at 1 WTC (or the other towers for that matter) as a replacement for the twins. The twins are in some way still there, their footprints are now forever memorialized. The way the complex is being built around, not on that spot shows to me that its not a matter of "replacing" lost icons, but honoring that they were there first, what they stood for, what happened on that spot, and looking towards a brighter future.

Does anyone know if any tenant space is being fitted out yet, or is it too soon for that?

Probably too soon. The elevators aren't installed yet, and I'm sure there's other infrastructure work (electrical, HVAC, water, etc.) being conducted on lower floors.

Looks like this will beat out Shanghai Tower to completion and temporarily become the world's 3rd tallest. That's good to know!
