I am a bit lost here. So there is going to be a spire on the tower? Or just antenna?

ok thank you. But then how does it count to 1776 since antenna is not an architectural element?

IMHO Durst makes a mockery out of very special place to this country.

I don't think it was confirmed to be just an antenna though, it might end up still being a spire. So for now it could go either way. And I agree about Durst

Well it is confirmed it will be an antenna, but they never confirmed whether it will count or not. Can't they count the beacon as an architectural feature?

I realize that the spire/antenna and official height issue has been beaten to death but I just want to express the opinion that if 1WTC ends up with that skinny little stick of an antenna and it's official height will be recognized as 1776 feet while the Sears/Willis Tower with it's much more substantial dual antennas that everyone recognizes is not included as it's official height then it's very clear to me that the organization that makes these decisions has been pressured to do so because of the national significance of The World Trade Center and that they're not following a consistent or honest course of action. That would be a shame because this is a beautiful building and it would be silly to twist the standards just so it could have the date of the Declaration of Independence as it's height.

It's not necessarily accurate. Other media outlets have reported July 4th.

How do you know it's not accurate? It came primarily from the PA. And yea the media said that, the same people who are reffering to it as Ground Zero...

It looks like the start of the spire! Here is a better look at them, but they look like the support for the spire/antenna. I think work has started for the spire/antenna.

They still have to build the 105 floor and parapet, it's not the spire.

That pic you quoted is my new wallpaper

As to what we saw the cranes carry, I think it were only floor beams. The antenna will start rising only after concrete has topped out too

Are you serious? Those are the cables for the cranes.
