I was wrong, its not a beam, just part of the cocoon lifting mechanism.

Hmph, that raises the question on how the top spandrels will be placed. Will the spandrels be placed on the top of the top columns or will they be placed between them like the other spandrels?

It seems to me that the spandrel beams are really the beams down by the base that we thought were the spire at first.
Can anyone confirm this?

I would say so. You'll notice right before the cranes snatch them up like children, they will move some of them much closer to the base.

Thanks NYSkyline, I was trying to add a photo from WTC progress.

Beam signed by Obama raised at World Trade Center


Quote:
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK -- A steel beam signed by President Barack Obama was lifted into place Thursday at the top of the 104-story One World Trade Center.

A crane atop the building raised the beam from the ground after dozens of people, including construction workers and police officers, added their own signatures near those of the president and first lady Michelle Obama.

"It feels really good to be a part of it," said iron worker James Brady, part of the crew that lifted the beam. "I feel very proud to be here. I feel very lucky to be here."

On June 14, the Obamas visited the skyscraper that's being built to replace the twin towers destroyed by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001. The white beam contains the words "One World Trade Center" painted in blue. Obama wrote in marker: "We remember," "We rebuild" and "We come back stronger!"

The signatures will no longer be visible as the beam, which is 35 feet long and weighs 11,000 pounds, is enveloped by the structure.

"It will be, as the rest of the beams are, one that will support this building in years to come, decades to come," said Steven Plate, head of World Trade Center construction for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the site.

The skyscraper, formerly known as the Freedom Tower, is expected to be completed in early 2014.

people have really been overreacting about the antenna. It will look better in real life, and we'll get used to it. It will look just as dominating and certainly will stand taller than the original north towers antenna.

I disagree, the spire was beautiful, archtietecture beauty. It's no longer the symbolic 1,776 in height.

Fianlly- What else is disappointing, is that the Port Authority keeps calling it a spire and saying it will be 1,776.Do they think we're stupid?

According to that oft-posted render of the upper structure, the top spandrels will be placed in between the parapet columns like the others are.
