If piece 12 is still sitting up there then there should be 3-4 more pieces to go up before this, unless i"m behind I thought 12 was n't attached yet,,could be wrong, if so what piece of the spire has been erected?

12 hadn't been placed last I saw, only sitting on the platform. However, you can rest assure it'll be up sometime this week, most likely tomorrow with the remaining pieces arriving recently.

Piece #12 is still sitting up top on the platform waiting to be installed. Once it's installed, that will leave just five other pieces to finish the mast.

The winds are forecast to be 20-30mph tomorrow. It looks like it might be at least another day till work resumes at the top.

That's where the temporary PATH station is at the moment. It will eventually be (exactly when has never been stated) a performing arts center. I know which renders you mean when you say it looks like a park. It'll probably never actually look like that; those renders are just trying to give an idea of life in the new plaza area once 1 and 4 and the Transit Hub are up and running. Also inaccurate in those is the absence of 2 and 3, which would be in the middle of being constructed when the area looked like that.

I am curious to see what it's going to be like, trying to get into the area while 2 and 3 are under construction. Of course the area around those will be sealed off, but what about the memorial? I hope it'll all be opened up by that time. I eagerly await being able to visit the memorial whenever I want.

Anyone else think they should have just built two identical 1 WTC towers?

No. It looks fine with the current design. It's also a refreshing look with unique identity. Each tower is supposed to be like steps going down, from 1 WTC as the tallest to 4 WTC as the shortest. There was supposed to be a 6th tower where Deutsche Bank building used to be. Unfortunately, I believe that idea was scrapped.

height restrictions can be lifted and also even in a few decade if you have a dozen 600m buildings you will still be having one of the top skylines of the world. i mean even singapore has a height restriction of 280m and has one of the best skylines in the world and also one of the tallest, seeing that it still ranks in the top 12 with its CAHTT score.

it is not clear as of now, whether or not the antenna will be counted towards the architectural height, so maybe 1WTC will not even be the tallest structure until 2016 when 432 PA is finished

It wasn't designed to look attractive from 10 feet away.

This is atrocious from 10 feet away...


But the world looks and sees this...
