i think the spire is too tall for the complex concrete structure of the building...if they will rise the concrete structure up other 200 ft and the rest in spire could be better

That's what I wanted from the start, and so did David Childs. Larry Silverstein was the one in charge (developer) and chose not to build so high.

Was it a question of cost? Need (or lack there of) of square footage?

I don't like the proportions or style in this suggestion. The top either has to continue the aesthetics and design of the bottom OR has to contrast. This particular suggestion IMHO does neither and thus clashes with the actual building part.

FT would look best with no antenna at all. But if there must be a spire to 'fake' the height to the symblic 1776', then let's have a slender one

Anybody know?

Looks like they replaced two boom sections, probably due to damaged lacing or chord members. Overall length remained the same.

Yes, they did. It should be back up and running this afternoon, or sometime before dark.
