With the four sections double-stacked, I wonder if they will bolt them together on the ground and lift them in pairs? Or would that be too much weight for the crane(s)?

Any idea what this thing is?:

or it's just convenient for them to be in a proper position to be lifted...I wonder how long the intervals will be between installing the segments

I was recently fooling around in CitiesXL2012 and I thought about this photo and found a few patches....

*they SHOULD be fairly close to scale...but...Anyways, just thought you'd like to see it more accurately compared.

Those rendering are still a bit off to me, isn't SWFC 1,555 feet? It's only 187 feet taller than One WTC's roof

SWFC is 495m, 1WTC will be 541m. You think the WTC spire will rise 45m above the SWFC in that visual?

I guess they are already bolted togeter and will be lifted that way. Being much smaller, two of them must weigh about the same that one of the much larger pieces of the bottom.

The new antenna is hideous. It's an absolute disgrace to such a beautiful building. The only parts of the antenna are the lower parts that were recently shipped by the barge, the remainder of it is absolutely disgraceful. What makes it worse is the fact that the Port Authority continues to call this atrocity a spire.

I'm gonna get flak for this but a great city like NYC deserves a more iconic building.

That's not that impressive looks like just any other antennae
Not impressive at all, why not make it a damn flag pole, with the nation's biggest flag or something..(something we can be proud of for some kinda record), (or any other suggestion?, just to make it different).. This is just unexcuseable on a 4 billion dollar piece of art.

Looking at Otie's render of the complete tower I think it's more beautiful with the less imposing spire/mast. The building is the focus with the ring and mast finishing it off. I know whenever I looked at renders of the earlier design my eyes just kept going straight to the spire. The building is impressive so let it be the star : )
