Yup, I completely agree with you. 1WTC is far better in every aspect except for height compared to what we see rise in the middle east

Spires are awesome and in this case a tradition, no matter what any autist roof height warrior says.

They probably cover the light bulbs with a colored cover but I highly doubt they cover the windows with plastic.

Does slotted glass begin at 89 or 91, because 89 and 90 are for broadcasting, according to this diagram.

Have we seen any glass panes so far that are twice as tall, or will these be the 1st on these upper levels?

Does anyone know why this article says it will be the highest observatory in the United States when the SkyDeck is the highest as 1,308 feet?
