Looks a bit short and stumpy compared to the real one. Maybe it's just me, I live in London but I LOVE NEW YORK SOOOOO MUCH!!!!! Wish I could live there.

I liked the blockyness of the old WTC and this version which looks as if it tapers in a little bit makes it look small in some perspectives but when viewed in that last night shot above, it's almost reminiscent of the old one, just take away the cranes and put the spire on and maybe not the red light.

Anywho I know I already asked this already, but its been 2 months, so things could of changed since.

But, How will the tower look in mid-late October?
How heigh will the glass be?
Will there be base cladding?
Will the parts of the antenna be on the building?

I can't think of anything more embarassing than seeing someone use greentext outside of 4chan. You even changed the color of the text yourself. lmao

I'll just take some educated guesses.
1. The Glass should be around between 90-93?
2.Base Glass is going to be installed in October and will be the last of the tower completed.
3.Antenna? It will begin installation when concrete reaches the roof, so right now, we're on floor 100.

You can't predict the glass, there might, little to none, be any cladding, the antenna might be the smallest stump, and it's really unpredictable so just wait and see

According to Wikipedia, we are indeed on floor 93 of glass. And from what I have heard, we also will begin base cladding in October. As far as the spire, the exact date of installation to my understanding is uncertain.

Wikipedia says that glass is on the 82nd floor.
But wiki isn't always accurate, and we have some users who will go unmentioned who like to edit......

I misread and mistook the concrete for the glass. But now it says concrete is around floor 94, so I have no idea. Wikipedia can be so great at times yet so unreliable at others.

And I can't wait for the base cladding either nyarch21!

I wonder how long the core concrete must cure before the floor above it can be poured? I'd also like to know how heavy the mast, ring and cooling towers be, that maybe might affect the required cure time?

^ Agreed. The antenna doesn't look bad at all.
