But as i know twin towers had observation area on the roof. Why 1WTC will not have it?

Because there is equipment on the roof. Not having a rooftop observation area, has always been the biggest loss for me with this tower.

One World Trade Center won't have an observation area on the roof because the communication ring and antenna will be up at the top.
If the Original North Tower didn't have a twin, there would be no observation deck at the top either

Amazing second picture Mike. The ESB, BofA, and soon to be finished 1 WTC are certainly three of the best skyscrapers in the city.

The best places to view the skyline are free and open to the public for sure.

They are some of the best skyscrapers in the world. 1WTC will look whopper when it is complete and the three buildings will look savage.

True I may be mistaken but is the microwave radiation emitted by the communications ring dangerous to humans? On a side note if 1WTC were given the opportunity to rise an extra 100ft it would surpass the Willis Tower as tallest in the US by roof. But as it stands now its the tallest in pinnacle height.

Haha very true. The developer behind the Miglin Beitler proposal in Chicago actually said that they had to test radiation samples because of the Sears antennae's, and that putting a tower too close to the Sears with a height of 400m+ would create a radiation vacuum, or something of that sort, and would cause massive radiation problems. So the moral of the story is, antennae's cause health problems and will give you radiation poisoning
