PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE BACK TO 1776 feet 541 meters

Thank you
The solution to the panel "problem" has existed since the new design for 1 WTC was unveiled in 2005. I present to you the original design for the antenna enclosure:



Thanks to NY Guy at SSP for posting the rendering. I had been trying to find it for a few days but no luck.

Wow. Me like it a lot. Much better than a joint one Imo that would be the best option of all three if there has to be something on the roof.

It amazes me how much disagreement can go on over a dressed up antennae and how tall a building actually is. The bottom line is, all buildings tall or not tall, should be measured to it's roof. Not the top of a "sphere" or Ferris wheel or anything else that might "sit" on top of it's roof. I just think it is completely cheating if you count an antennae within the height when comparing to other buildings. If I designed and built a building that was 1000 feet tall to the roof and someone built a building that was 600 feet to the roof right next to me but with a 401 foot antennae, or sphere if you will, I would be pretty pissed if someone labeled it as the taller building. "Building" being the key word. Just my opinion and I'm sure most would agree.

I'd like to see a render with that spire shown from a distance. Enough to see the whole tower. THEN one with the new 'antenna'. I'll bet it will look almost invisible.

There is no reason to change it back. It has a roof height of 1374, and a pinnacle of 1776

Exactly, we had a huge discussion about this yesterday, and I said the same thing with a different example

Had to be a reason why they did not chose that design, most probably cost issues as well.

There are a ton of shots of the original model out there somewhere.



Apparently this spire was designed without the antenna in mind, but I'm sure if they tried hard enough they could make it work. I like how it blends in with the sky as you get further away.
