I'm getting REALLY tired hearing about the spire. let's just move on already. I can't believe there's over 50 pages of spire complaints. What happened to all the progress pictures? I mean, this thread is going downhill quickly. See you guys at Skyscraperpage.

I'm leaving this thread and not coming back until people have calmed down about the spire.

Good, I'm tired of hearing you complain. Of course the spire redesign is going to rile people up and cause plenty of discussion.

I think those 5 little knub/platform are the Biggest things that make it look "incomplete" like a frame..those 5 things make it look super ugly and out of place....

..the least they can do is remove those 5 little platform thingys to at least make it SMOOTH like every other buildings' spire/antennae on earth.

And paint it too! Wtf is up with the rust color???? LOL!

Paint it white, silver..or even black at least... but RUST/BROWN?!?!?!? WTH?!?!?!

White would be the best... like Willis's antennae, it's pretty nice.. much nicer than this anyways...

Can anybody go outside and take some pics of the scraper or must I take my jet to N.Y and do it myself. Because it is all about spire this and antenna that. YES one of the two will stand on top of the 1wtc, so SHUT UP about this horse shit and do your work and go out and take some pics NOW If I could choose none would stand on top. I would build an observation deck regardless of the mechanical floors right under
