Probably as long as people still remember the old world trade center. Its just a way of referencing between two completely different complexes representing different eras. I usually just call it the world trade center unless someone is unclear about which I'm referring to.

We need to get rid of the name "Ground Zero" first.

Stunning photos all the resort is really a wonder how it will be, I say the renders.

I think there is no reason to make a mate at his side, the twin towers were wonderful world economy icon, but it happened that none of us would have wanted, an unprecedented disaster in the new complex that recalls the enormous sources, remain forever in the memory, but the new complex, it really is impressive, since as I love doing the area again. Tower One along with two (do not know if it is being built) are brothers beautiful buildings, the three and the four that are already under construction are also beautiful and are a great skyline.

I love new york!

Sorry but i use the google translate.

The tower glass has grown 4 floors since 31 days ago. Does anyone know what floor glass is on right now and at what floor the vented glass will begin?

Nope, no Freedom Tower. They showed One World Trade Center though.
I'm just pulling your leg, but we prefer that it be called One World Trade Center, or 1WTC, sometimes even Tower one, or T1. "Freedom Tower" was always a cheesy name that made sense at the time.

Almost On Topic: I'm thinking of adding lights to my model, but I need a new rendering program, PM me if there are recommendations? I don't do enough to warrant paying for one, I'm also buying a new PC next spring. Perhaps Otie would know of one.

On Topic: at the Wired New York 1WTC thread a map was posted showing the course that the spire/antenna will traverse from Pier 25 to the site. http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showth...l=1#post401694 Post #12617

Wait I'm confused, first they was the spire and then I heard they are removing the aesthetic component making it look a massive antenna. So what is going to happen, are they going to go with the original design or are they going for the "stripped" design for the spire?

Definitely after Thanksgiving according to iron workers, It might be the week after, or a few months after, but nothing is in the plans until after Thanksgiving when it comes to bring in the spire. from here on out, I think I'm going to call it a spire. Anyway, a HUGE floating crane will unload the sections onto massively wide trailers that will carry them to the site. but that is months off. I'm looking forward to the October base glass installation, they put up mounts in the concrete to the right of the South entrance. Also I want to see how similar the M.E.R. vented cladding for the top mech. floors will be to 4WTC's vents.

Not putting the architectural casing on the antenna is going to save them $20 million.

I thought it was because they couldn't figure out how it would be [safely] cleaned...? Was it due to budgetary or logistical concerns do you think?
