Great, even more delays At least this is just the antenna. I am confident that glass, cooling tower and maybe even ring errection will proceed as planned. One question though, since the ring has broadcasting dishes on it, do they even need an antenna of this size? Could a smaller and thinner antenna not handle the broadcasting with the ring too?

I don't think ADF can legally hold steel for a different contract that has been signed. Wouldn't the steel company be legally obliged to deliver on their newer contract by signing it? Then again, what do I know.

Same idea as the mechanical floors in the original twins. The exterior [between columns in the twins, through the completely open half of panels in this tower] was completely open, the louvers that have yet to be installed are considered the exterior. There will be a ledge between the glass facade, with some panels only having half sized panes of glass and the louver wall a few feet farther in. On either side of the ledge there will be a concrete curb with water proofing and most likely drains that feed into the rumored rain water collection system.

Here is a picture of said ledge and down-turned louvers of the original twins:

Note the light bulb is the sealed type expected in an exterior location. Also 1WTC's fireproofing is in the form of paint-on rather than spray-on fireproofing at the mechanical levels, more like we see at the base, but not colored red.

Skylines in NYC most don't have LED lights which make it bland and boring old buildings.

Actually most LED lights look cheap as hell to me.

One could say the daddy of skyscrapers is Chicago,but I can darn well say New York is the perfector of such act.New York City has the most diverse skyline in the US and most likely the world,so do us all a favor and look back at what New York City has brought to the world in terms of architecture.
