[QUOTE=chris123678;92286030]One World Trade Center's redesigned spire sorta looks like One Liberty Place's spire in Philly

I honestly see very little similarity between the two. They don't really look alike, but yea 4 Times Square looks more like it plus One Liberty Place has a nicer spire, more full looking

That's not a spire, that's a crown. That's a big difference

The only one, that is any good is the one on the far right. All the rest are disgusting. #3 might have been OK if it was enclosed productive office space all the way to the top, with the observation deck on top, as opposed to those ridiculous windmills. But such as it is, I think they finally made the right decision.

Well perhaps the will of the public, and the population base, had somewhat of an influence against it, even though, it was determined it wouldn't have been structurally feasible and/or realistic.

I kinda doubt it. From what I've heard Obama is just signing the last beam that will go in. I doubt it will be lifted on the 14th. They haven't even laid out on the flooring for the uppermost floor at the moment.

I was using that comparison because the spire on top of 1LP kinda had an emptiness to it. But it's an older spire.
Nice to see that you like that spire tho.

It was. Everything that Libeskind made at the WTC site was a joke

That **** fixation on the 1776 number was the biggest mistake imo. It made it impossible for 1WTC to rise any higher in the first place.

Do you think they fill finish the top out for June 27 or maybe July 1 ? just to get the idea of when the height will be finished, and also, when do you think they will begin to install the antenna in the top of the building or, to finish putting all the glass?

No...the One Liberty spire looks like it melds and matches with the building and doesn't have a bunch of platforms and spikes sticking out of it... 1WTC looks like an afterthought, chicken wire and doesn't match at all..it looks like a naked frame that's missing something.

I'm glad to see that the One world trade center finally reaching the top. One question: Do you guys know whether they have really changed the spire for the current antenna or if it was just a proposal? That would be a pitty 'cause I found the building perfect with the spire. I think it definitely matches the whole building.

there is no way that i could agree with you more......you ever see those old buildings from the twenties and thirties? they stick some kind of contraption on the top of it and it looks horrible usually........that's what this looks like. the finished product will look like someone just plunked some cheap piece of crap right on top of it............the geometry of the building must be carried through otherwise it will be a massive failure and they shouldn't even bother with the spire at all. i said in the beginning they should have just capped it with a nice pyramidal roof.....it's trite, i know, but that is what has made new york skyscrapers famous.
