Thanks, I'll fix that when I adjust the "depth" of the spandrels. Will it be just like 4WTC with the regular width, but 50% glass, with the other half having vertical louvers that are placed at the depth of the glass, past the spandrels? If it's like 4WTC then the final result will be a vent that looks continuous vertically except for a inch or two space at the tops and bottoms of the panels?

Yeah I noticed that too. Maybe they just don't feel like it or something. Some of them use live footage throughout so its always updated.

Fox 5 news has the World Trade Center in background most of the time, sometimes they don't. I figure once its complete it will be shown more.

Must be the same everywhere. The background at Channel 13 here in Baltimore must be at least 5 years old. Probably pretty expensive to update those everytime something changes on the skyline.

NBC 4 New York has the WTC in the background with the empire state building every day every time they are on the air.

No, the glass at plenums won't be like at Four's facade, each panel will be mostly covered by glass with some vertical slots completely empty.

I noticed that too like Fox 5 in the morning there background shows no new 1 World Trade Center, even EYEWTNESS NEWS 7 does not show 1 World from what I have seen from their graphics, but I do see them show it live during the weather forcast sometimes from Dowtown Brooklyn Camera.

OK, so the glass simply stops about 3/8 from the edge. Thanks, and does MillerHare have more renderings for reference?

Do my eyes deceive me or did they add another spandrel on the northeast corner?
