I never mentioned anything about the Quality on Buildings in Japan and China, there leading innovation. I merely stated that they have much more workers and different building conditions.

whoa! wait the pedestal cladding wont start until next year??

Excuse my language but why the hell do they need 1 year to do this??

I thought they already decided what the cladding will be and everything was cool and ok... and i surely dont believe they need 1 year to just manufacture the cladding, so, what am I missing here??

IIRC, it because they have so much work to do above and inside the base, they don't want to risk damaging the base cladding, or something along those lines. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Lolwut? It's much better than any of the new wtc towers. It has style, quality materials, great detailed cladding. You can't deny new wtc towers are collection of just acceptable glassy boxes with no details whatsoever. Wtc3 had a chance to stand out but they blew it... beekman style fits nyc much better than blueish all-glass scrappers IMO.
