Oh Kanto ... If only you knew that the "old fashioned antennas" which you talk about were not so old-fashion, but late XX century additions. ESB's original spire, from the early XX cent., which ends at the upper observation capsule, was designed with looks very much in mind and was to serve as a landing post for blimps. The upper, more horrible, metal structure of disparate sticks and cables (in the brutalist style that you so much love) was added later and was never intended in the original plan of the structure.

Now, did I just hear you say that ESB's first architect designed such a proportionate, detailed, symbolic, and symmetric structure to be topped off by a disproportionate, under-construction-looking pinnacle that only looks good from afar? Doesn't seem to make sense.

EDIT: It just dawned on me that this last sentence has validity with the newly redesigned spire of 1 WTC and its contrast to the detail, symmetry and symbolism of the tower.

Whoa, I appreciate the fact that you can't seem to be able to bear hearing somebody else's opponion, but frankly, you didn't have to be so kind as to spend your valuable time looking for a facepalm to post here. That is so creative.

you would've understood if you had seen that I was referring to a previous forum member's depiction of 1 WTC without the spire and communications that I'm so crazy about.

Agreed! Are you people insane?! It looks hideous, unfinished, and plain out boring without a spire/antenna!

Sorry, I didn't know you were referring to the picture w/o the spire.
It that case, it does look pretty bad.

The mechanical floors shouldn't take a lot more time than the office floors. The mechanical floors are about 2 office floors. 1 office floor would take a week. So a wild guess maybe about 1,5 week for mechanical floors because they don't have to prep a new floor they just make the frames a bit taller.
