Really people?
It is this sort of attitude that allowed Durst to make the changes in the first place.

We will combine the following: After the opening of ONE WTC (and obviously its antenna), we open a "new thread: Antenna Radome ONE WTC"! Okay!

The challenges to reach this point were (and still are) huge. One WTC is fantastic.
The importance of completing the 1WTC is not just for New York or America .....!
No matter radome. The radome can be for the future ..... (or not) .....

P.S. I'm very happy with the progress, and we all should be!
congratulations to the creators and "changing the way" that become "ONE reality"!

He gave his top reasoning as the spire being impossible to properly maintain. Unless you can deliberately walk up to his headquarters with picket signs and demand the spire be brought back (along with actual solutions to the maintenance problem) you would be able to have a chance at bringing it back. Complaining on a site for skyscraper geeks doesn't help, as I doubt Durst checks this site for weekly updates.

We should all raise the $10 million needed for the spire.

20 million dollars is nothing for him; low budget isn't the reasoning he gave for cancelling the radome.

I know. I'm just saying though, the complainers should actually do something rather than complaining on the forums. How about Petitions(which did nothing), donations, or even have some type of protest.

this thought just came to mind..how can this antenna not be considered part of the building, but if you add a cover its then considered part of the building? how does that make any sense because lets say they decide to add it later and the buildings height is 1368 feet..would they increase the height again to 1776? no.. i seriously think the way they decide height is pretty ridiculous lol

I'm sorry but out of all the things in the world you could protest for, it would be for an ornamental covering for an antenna?

Yeah it is.
Business CEOs and politicians lie. I know it's a big shock.

How do you know he is lying? What is this, the conspiracy of the missing radome?

My point was that money is not the reason the radome was scrapped. It was the maintenance issue. That means that the only way you can really talk back to him is to offer a solution to the maintenance problem. Either you suggest to his company a solution or accept what you get and stop whining.

So that makes only 1wtc a tower, that makes sense.

I guess I'm the only one who isn't disappointed with the antenna. Of course it's not better than the orginal spire, but this antenna isn't really that bad. It' looks alot better in real life than the renderings.

Not to mention it still isn't the time to judge it, as the bulky temporary platforms make it look far more cluttered than it will look when it's finished.
