thats because its a rendering. wait till you see the real antenna. These latest renderings are hardselling the antenna & looks like they have succeeded.

dont be surprise if real antenna is ugly as hell.

I think the renders accurately depict the antenna based on older renders. It doesn't look bad in them because it won't look bad in reality either. I like it far more than that ugly fat joint spire

4wtc looks huge to me in the renderings. Bigger than I thought. The lack of cladding is truly taking a toll on its appearance right now. When should we expect glass to reach top floor? October?

Port Authority expects glass to reach the roof by December for Tower 1.
I'd say September/October for tower 4

Does anyone have any information on when the final 32 horizontal perimeter beams / spandrels will be installed? For me, this would be 1WTC's greatest milestone until the glass cladding is complete. The antenna can always be clad or changed later.

The 5th picture down makes 7 world trade look different than reality. Will 1wtc be lit up daily?

Thats pretty much what 7WTC looks like in reality lol and no as far as I know the base would be the only part they illuminate.

Well it looks exactly like 7wtc other than the fact that 1wtc lights was mirrored by 7wtc. I was confused at first.
