That white pole on the top looks so good, such a shame

For anyone who's seen the antenna in person, it still looks nice.

I think it would look very elegant if they made the glass cladding of 2WTC in a dark tint. Not as dark as in the rendering above, but just a slightly darker tint than the glass of tower 1.

In that way not all the towers will have the same glass tint and color reflections when it's finished, which may look a bit boring. Except for 4WTC ofcourse, which has a different clading (more reflective).
I just hope every tower will have it's own (different) tint of glass at the end. Although 1WTC and 7WTC already have the same glass cladding if I'm not mistaken.

2WTC is simply put an absolute masterpiece. If anyone messes with the design or shortens it I will personally fly to America and throw them off the top of 1wtc. They should only fill up the top and put a restaurant there.
2WTC will outshine the rest of the complex

I do agree. 2 WTC is my favorite out of all the buildings followed closely by 1 WTC.

All 4, my favorite is the 3rd! I find this very crude steel structure composing the facade.

I think the 3rd and the 2nd most beautiful than the first.

As far as I know the diogonal steal beams are removed out of the design by tower 3, so it will look like a larger version of tower 4...

I hope they keep tower 2 intact...

Very little diagonal bracing remains on the tower. All that's left is a little on its sides.

The only black tower should be 5WTC (a nod to the original building), and I'm not even so sure about that.

And by original building, I mean the one that resided at 130 Liberty Street, not the original 5WTC.

I'll bet anything the CTBUH will get pressured into labeling that OBVIOUS antenna as a spire so 1WTC gets to claim the US tallest title. They can't allow the replacement for the iconic twin towers to be shorter than a residential tower in Midtown, can they? Politics as usual.


Maybe someday they'll have the funding and technology to encase that hideous thing without ruining it's functionality.

Yes they got pressured labeling Trump Chicago, NYTimes, Bank of America, Petronas Towers, Chrysler Building to classify theirs as a spire too. They will make their decision based on their their guidelines and will call it based on it. Either way, people will not be happy of their decision either way as shown in the past in many cases. They just have to stick to their principles and we shall see. I would not bet against you because I believe it will be counted.

The Chrysler Building? Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat was founded in 1969. 1 wtc mast/spire is part of its original and architectural design the main classification of a spire. there will be no such pressure.

Of course there was no political pressure for all those other buildings, as none of them replaced towers knocked down in a terrorist attack and all the symbolic, patriotic expectations that go with it. There is a clear difference between 1WTC and any other building in American history, and there will obviously be considerable pressure on the CTBUH to be extra generous with their height classification on this one.

Anyway, the "spire" on 1WTC isn't a solid encased structure like all the other spires you mentioned; it looks more like any garden-variety guyed antenna mast you'd see anywhere in the world. If that exact same structure was sitting atop a 3-story building in Omaha, everyone knows it would be universally labeled an antenna.

If they're gonna call that a spire, they better raise the official height of Conde Nast also.
