There is a select group of posters on this forum who like to shout down anyone who dares to defy the "great spire/antenna/mast/whatever," and it is getting old. If no one else wants to call you and the others out on their garbage, then fine, I will do so.

Just because you are fine with the design does not mean that others are. This thread is for the discussion of One World Trade Center. The antenna/spire/mast is a part of said building. If you have a problem with people discussing a portion of the building, then perhaps you should keep it to yourself or explain why it is inappropriate to discuss that particular portion.

And by the way, I've been reading this forum for quite a while. Longer than you have, in fact. Thanks for asking.

theirs a difference between discussing the PROGRESS of 1 wtc and complaining because you don't like the antenna..guess what no one cares whether you like it or not, if you want a discussion that bad press on the tall talk section and start a thread there to discuss.. i personally liked 3wtc with the cross bracing..it got removed..to bad am i going to go on there and bitch that i wanted the bracing? no you move on

I think you have had an aneurysm. Seek medical attention immediately.

Progress update:

Mechanical cladding: Cladding on the SE side has gone up so fast today, the building is nearly 50% done now, and was only 25% done yesterday. Unfortunately, nothing was done on the NE side today.

Antenna: Really weird, I can't seem to find section 12 of the mast on the platform now. I didn't see any change in 1WTC's mast appearance. Was it taken down, or am I just not seeing it?

Yeah, weird, I know. Last time I checked workers at 432 Park were off today, but I can assure you from looking at the SE facade, plenty of work was done on that facade today.

The glass on the tower is looking gorgeous. Better than I though it would be.

Once again, Complaining is NOT discussing. Seriously theyre complaining, but how is that discussing a problem..? Thats a totally serious question. And to be honest I could really care less how long youve been here, thats actually more of a garbage statement than you claim mine is. Also telling Filipe he has an aneurysm, what the heck is wrong with you?

Battery Park City is undergoing a renovation so The Sphere was removed and is currently sitting in a hangar at JFK I believe. Moving forward, I would imagine it finds its way back to the WTC site, and from some quick Googling it sounds like a spot in Liberty Park is most likely.

I agree with meh_cd, everyone is entitled to express their own opinion about the mast. It's something you can't control, expect the same type of conversation during coming months, all we are seeing here is mast progress and podium enclosure.

But I just don't get why constant complaining is considered discussion. I respect everyones opinion here until it becomes redundant and putting the tower down. Its just sad and disappointing to see that

I agree with Otie. I am new here and have not been following the project too closely over time. But I found this forum online and decided to join so I could ask some questions. I posted a couple of questions and was rudely shot down by one or two people, for simply asking a question about the construction. People shouldn't assume everyone who joins this forum knows everything about this project, asking questions is the way to find out things after all! A forum should be a topical informative place to exchange ideas, and anyone should be welcomed and free to ask any relevant questions whether they are new or not. If some people on here can only resort to ridiculing or putting one down for inquiring about different aspects of 1WTC, then they should expect that people will not tolerate it and seek out friendlier forums.

What did you ask? Some people think they know everything and then the simple questions, even that I ask too, get pushed aside because theyre "dumb". But SouthernBoy Oties talking about opinion/backlash of the mast
