Those are mockups for the base cladding.

Sorry I've haven't posted anything in a while, i've been very busy.

So about a week ago I talked to somebody I know who recently visited the 9/11 memorial. She told me that she asked the guards about a few things, but she told me something really surprising. The guard told her that on the building's podium, there will be a ticker that displays news and advertisements, like the ones in times square. I was really shocked when I heard this, since it would probably look really ugly. Now I don't know if this is confirmed or not, and I sure hope not this would not happen, it would just ruin the whole building. Just wanted to know if you have any information about this proposal.

I have been checking the forum every now and then to catch up on the news, and it seems like the PA is ruining everything, from the plaza entrance, to the spire.

What's next? are they going to replace the 9/11 museum with a Starbucks? Just Kidding, but you see what I mean.

If anybody has any information about this, feel free to reply to me.

There was always going to be a antenna inside the spire.

I'm pretty sure it will look similar to the original spire design, just a bit thinner. Hopefully it won't look like the old North Tower spire!

And it will only get better from there, with the upcoming Towers 2 and 3 and the transport hub.

Sadly they're still chipping away at the things that make One WTC unique... (spire, base, plaza)..... its kinda hard to watch.

Just a feat of modern engineering. It is a beautiful building, but a building of it's height would have been possible over 80 years ago.

Agreed. The biggest loss for me is the plaza.

I think the base actually looks a lot better, and we'll have to wait and see how the spire turns out

He was probably refering to the screen at 3WTC's podium, which was removed during the final redesign.

Second version


Third and last version

Thank you for clearing that up for me Otie! I had no idea there even was going to be a screen on 3WTC.

By the way, I am going to new York today and Im hoping to pass by the tower. I can't wait!

Like everything in this complex, it's all been watered down to the point of mediocrity. The complex will look great from afar, but I'm beginning to think that the ground level is going to be a mess for a long time to come.
