I really like the facade. The glass looks fantastic and the corners are a nice throwback to the aluminum of the old WTC.

Yeah, I like that as well.

Gives you kind of a sneak preview of just how beautiful the facade in going to look once it is in place on the tower!

You cannot know this simply by looking at the core because the area around the core is being built up too.

I get the feeling you're still drooling.

We'll all be drooling. The facade is, I bet, many times better than we were expecting. This building will look like it isn't even real, but something so iconic with an unmatched presence that makes people feel great to gaze upon.

(I was expecting the worst: dumb horizontal lines, horrible looking glass that was too dark or clear, stupid things holding each panel of glass in place, ect)

Because we now know that the facade will look great, there's nothing to worry or complain about since it's now 100% clear that the tower will look great. simple, but very good looking=100% icon
It will look cooler than 7.

Don't want to spoil the party but I am far from impressed by that test piece of cladding.
Towers like WTC3, Trump, Burj Dubai or Bank of America look a lot better.

Oh, I'm sure they do.

Anyway, it doesn't seem like it will go too well with the Goldman Sachs Tower, but I'm sure everything will work out fine in the end.

This tragedy just never ends.
Well said.

No body care about the cladding on those other tower, this isn't the thread for that crap. Now I do like the blue color of tower 7 and 3. And the facade for the FT looks just like that in those pictures I like.

Some obviously do as it won't be one tower in isolation but an integrated development. Give it a year or two and we'll be mighily impressed at the soaring architecture, attention to design detail and the dramatic effect on Lower Manhattan. All that's required is some patience.

Yeah I'm sure people do care about those other towers. But using them to take cheap shot at this one is'nt fare. That's nice if u people don't like this building. Cus you don't have to live in it and you don't have to look at. ^ And I thought his post was pretty heartless too. It's not about the cost of the memorial, it's about the people it stands for But I shouldn't have to say that should I.

Yeah, I also think that his post was ill-timed and out of line.
