Indeed, with the old twins it came out nice that there were two towers, one for the antennas and the other for an observation deck on the roof.

Without the spire, it might as well be 2WTC that gets all the attention. It would actually be a few feet taller than 1wtc would be without the antenna. Plus, the antenna is necessary for broadcast reasons, so they're not taking it off.

So apparently they're starting base cladding later this month?

Are they building the new WTC one building at a time? When will they start construction on WTC 2? (That one is my favorite)

Well that actually does make sense, thanx. But then again with all the skyscrapers there, couldn't they use just any one of them, or does it have to be on the tallest?

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that the thread for WTC 2 would be a could place to look for those types of answers.

That's that one with the slanted rooftop? The one that is supposed to shine light at a certain spot, on that certain day of 9-11?

For an idea of what a thinner spire might look like, I went ahead and copy/pasted the old north tower antenna on top of 1WTC. Doesn't look too shabby, honestly.

It would be fitting if they constructed a replica of the original north tower antenna.

3 more height jumps to go, and they just got a new shipment of steel.
