First 2 parapet beams went up between July 13th and 16th, I can't remember which. The final one was placed on July 31st.

Seems like the base at the north/Vesey st side will be clad the very last.

I did not mean to rebuild the twin towers at Ground Zero, but elsewhere yes! ...the twin towers were fantastic

But exactly the same way? They simply don't build buildings nowadays with 60's architecture and without the outside being totally clad. It would be incredible to rebuild them but i just cant imagine any building going up in these times with old techniques and architecture it would just be so simple and no accomplishment.

Doesn't look like spire to me. More like just an antenna. Or will it be clothed with something?

Why build such a beautiful, dominating and elegant tower and then put a f*cking metal stick on top. The old spire design was so much better, this antenna is so thin, deformed and does not fit with the rest of the building.

You're currently seeing it covered in many TEMPORARY worker platforms. Once completed, the spire viewed from the ground (even without the radome) will appear a solid, tapered mast with a beacon on top. It looks awful at the moment because of all the platforms at every segment level.
