Sorry to interrupt with bad news, but YouTube no longer supports my preferred file format so I'll combine all the videos and upload the batch. Because its all HD it might have to process overnight because I'm going to upload it in the bast quality possible.

Although the observatory design seems gaudy and a bit overdone, I've found that renders of any design are usually exaggerated so that the main focus is the central theme, which is the render itself. The actual design, while probably the same, will probably look more modest.

Some people are to quick to judge, wait until you see it for yourself or at least pictures of the real thing...these are probably quick renderings to give an idea anyway and even if they are final I bet it will look 10x better in real life.

The actual building itself only reaches 1,368 ft, while the, lets just call it the pointy thing on top, puts it at 1,776.

The actual building itself goes up to 1,368 feet, while the (Let's just call it the pointy thing on top for now) brings the total height up to 1,776 feet.

I'm pretty sure it's not going to be like that, it's not going to be like the original but I'm certain it will be a real restaurant.

And does anyone know what happened to Carlos over at SSP? He hasn't posted there since Feb 9th or even logged in since Feb 16th. No 1WTC updates on his flickr photostream, either. Just pictures of his phone...

I heard it was going to be a Shake Shack, or at least they were being considered.

How about NYC's first In-n-Out atop 1WTC?
