Battleship grey

I too was hoping for at least a part of white.. at least.

I personally like the spire/mast...I think it's pretty fitting for the tower, the randome was pretty ugly to be honest...but they could have went with the open lattice like I've been saying...that would have looked pretty cool...

I don't know if this is accurate but the real deal reported that it's been topped out today. lol. I dunno.

One World Trade Center just became the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere

They still have 5WTC to build... they should make 5WTC like 3000ft and make it the tallest building... I doubt that would happen but it would still be cool

Shanghai Tower now reaching 525m just overtook 1WTC (520m atm) again. The entire building is rising faster than the spire/antenna of 1WTC. Quite fascinating I think.
