I couldn't imagine there ever being 2 1 World Trade Centers. The design of it would make it seem impressive from a distance and resemble the orginal twins, but as you near the building, or even at the ground, the tapering design doesn't really need a twin.

The cladding looked about 2 rows from reaching all the way across. Hopefully it'll be finished by next week.

Is the spire visible yet, I can't really see it at the top of the tower. Could someone point it out ?

I just saw One World Trade from 287 on my way to the Woodbury Outlets. It's the only building that portrudes above the hills

more progress is being done on the cladding, the mechanical floors for this side will definitely be finished before the next week is over.

Good find. You can see a panel being placed on the top row of cladding.

The higher the glass gets the taller it looks.
