^It's saddening that we lost RobertW. down at Skyscraperpage.The only reason I made an account in SSC was to follow him all the way here.

The greatest part I like about this building, not sure im the only one that thinks the same. That how this building is geometrically shaped... if you view it it in one way the bottom looks thin and the top looks thick. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lifesad...s25/7790273228
Love the building, only reason that I'll visit ny! proud that america has some sense of hope again

Perhaps (though the user made a similar "trollish" comment yesterday that I responded to as well, both of which we're deleted). It's tiresome hearing how slow 1WTC is. It's slow, everyone knows that. We know the reasons why. So let's give it a rest.

Sarcasm or not.

Haha you're funny Spectre!

I really do hate it when people compare this building to other skyscrapers going up...
He also posted a comment on the Shanghai Tower thread about how ST is going much faster then 1WTC...

Anyways @ Chris I don't think that the gray shiny stuff going on at the base is tape, It is something having to do with the cladding that's for sure because you can clearly see the level of cladding that will go on for the 20 story base. Hope this atleast cleared something up.

Here is why, because One WTC, is build over a subway line, which makes digging the bathtub very slow. And the inner core is reinforced concrete with very strong steel cables and iron work.

This makes it very slow to build.

So One WTC will take twice as long to build as another building of similar height.

Building started construction in May 2006.
If this was any other building, it would have topped out by Summer 2009 and opened by Spring/Summer 2010.

But for this building, it will top out Summer 2012 and open on Summer 2014.

So 8 years to build this building instead of 4.

Just went to see this today and the facade looks even better in person. I look forward seeing the other buildings rise next to this flagship.

Yeah, if they're not going to skin the antenna with that white material, then they may as well not even put it up there at all. The building would look fine without it.

Alternatively, I don't see why they don't just redesign the antenna into a vertical axis wind turbine. Then at least it has a practical reason for being there.

I agree with you that without anything on its roof 1WTC would look the best, but the antenna is still better than the fat spire and it has a purpose, which is broadcasting

This Might Sound stupid, but couldn't they clad the spire in a strong plastic?
