Great info! I wonder how high the glass will be when I go to NYC in october!

Man you're gullible. This is the same troll who edited 1wtc's wikipedia page and even admitted to it. Pay him no mind.

Maintainance for the cooling towers.
The inside of the cooling towers will be accessible and there will be small floors in them for maintenance too, I guess. Right?

Hey guys, check out my 3D computer animations of the 1WTC's base and foundation I made recently.

Another 3D computer animation, this one of an animated-timelapse of the 1WTC rising from the ground up:

Credits to Skidmore Owings and Merill LLP for providing me with some prints. Couldn't have done it without their help!

Wow! Progress is going by quite fast now! Atleast faster then I could remember... Maybe they are trying hard to get the tower open before 2014.
