If I were to assume correctly then those appear to be the connection beams where the glass will be connected to and the beams that will connect the new perimeter columns to each other.

Nope. The radome enclosure was dropped a few months ago because it was to expensive and hard to maintain.
So, it will just be the antenna, which is not counted in a buildings final height
somebody told it to you? or you can show us any proof link?

Alright, I just hope they can think of something between now and September to make it look better. I don't like the idea of 432 Park Avenue being taller.

Well since you obviously haven't been in this forum before, the radome was rumored to be taken away back in March but was officially confirmed in May. It really sucks.

Not be rude, but where were you when this forum used over 30 pages in a few days talking about it?

I thought that the earthcam pic contained the steel and not the spire?

Honestly, if you even looked up 1WTC in May, then it would pop up.

I hope they can paint it white or something. The current render is uglier than I think it will be in real life, IMO, but still it won't look too good.

What if they are doing something like Chrysler with its spire, getting all the Asians excited about the loss in height and then BAM! It's there, and counts.
Asians excited? What?

No thanks. I'll stay away from that thank you. No need to waste my life with some idiotic kids game.

Not a new project, just a antenna instead of a spire

From what i see on earthcam, it looks like something was added on to the steel.

They might be, based on my theory, adding the second level of the parapet from what I can see.

3. An additional 7 feet of antenna are not encased, so the pinnacle height is 1,783 feet. (Treaty of Paris).
No, it went from the original spire, which was a antenna with a thick encasing, to a thinner encased antenna, to a antenna with nothing encasing it.

Before/After





Final design
