I think the old spire design kinda looked like a joint...
I like the antenna. The communications ring however looks really bad. Also, the old North Tower antenna wasn't exactly beautiful.

Its literally like building a $4,000 project, and then downgrading a major part of it just to save $20..... Quite silly if you ask me.

I am aware of the antenna issue, but could someone post a render of the previous design so I can compare? I don't remember what the other version looked like.

The spire looks like a blossoming tree as apposed to the antenna which remind me of a tree in the winter! I don't mind the changes all too much, but I think the reasoning is pathetic.

The antenna will look much more prominent in real life than in those renders, though. I still wish they would paint it white.

That's not good if it turns brown with every sunset.

That new spire sucks. But the new skyline will be awesome, dispite the spire. Can't wait to see this one finished, and also 2 WTC

I doubt it will. Looking at a photo of an actual section of the antenna two or three months ago, it looked more grey than silver under blue skies. It looks a lot like lead in the way it shines if I remember correctly. It shouldn't be drastically be changed by the sky's color at dawn and dusk.

ring

Hi, I'm new on this forum
I'm currently following the progress of 1WTC.

And I wondered when they will start to build the "communication ring" ???

Construction has dramatically slowed down since several months

Some of you have an idea about this ? Thanks

For a moment I considered making render similar to the one on the last page with the old North Tower and new One World Trade Center... however the models are both absolutely MASSIVE and would take a day to set up. Every time I would need to make a slight adjustment it would take minutes of processing. If I get a new computer next year and I'm able to find time for the models I'll make a model showing the two previously mentioned buildings in their current, and former positions and allow you guys to see for yourself the height comparison. I intend to make a major update to the roof structures of my 1WTC model and a model of the SW corner of the North Tower from the 105th floor up by the new year. I could then, still with trouble, locate them side by side in the proper height allowing you guys to see the difference in floor spacing, facade, and structural system.
