I would assume they are waiting until all the glass and the ring is done to put the last piece of the spire up. It's probably going to be some televised big thing. As others have said they may be waiting for July 4th to light it up for the first time.

It's just frustrating knowing that bastard's up there, even attached to a crane, and nothing. My guess is hopefully their finishing all the lighting and electrical stuff be4 they erect it, so it looks cool as hell AS SOON as they place it. Could also be waiting for the guyed wires to be complete, if i'm not mistaken there is 4 correct? and maybe the last communication ring has to be installed to hook the "teflon? wiring".. Anybody have a better clue? That's the only thing I can think of, like Kanto said it's gotta be in the way up there, nobody want's to "accidently" bump, nick or F up a Million dollar piece. P Mad flyer, you out there? Haven't seen you're renders in awhile, you'd probably know the situation.

Why? All the pictures I have seen show the communications ring going right under the platform with room for even the 3rd ring to be completed.

I'm assuming that everything on the roof will be completed before they dismantle the work platform. Then the cranes and then the East elevator. The last will be the strip of glass panels that go on where the East elevator (by that time) used to be and the rest of the work on the base.

On this issue..

Quote:
...

The spire is currently on a platform on the roof of One World Trade Center and, weather-permitting, will be officially installed on Wednesday.

Lyons said he’s been engaged with all New York TV broadcasters and is starting talks with radio broadcasters, but no one has signed a lease yet. Most broadcasters have their antennas at the Empire State Building or the Durst-owned Four Times Square building.

On the TV side, the biggest holdup is the pending spectrum auction and channel repack. Depending on where channels move determines the kind of antenna that goes on the building, said Lyons.

For now, the Durst Organization remains in marketing and sales mode to convince broadcasters to put their antenna atop the symbolic building, promising future-proof technology.

“This is one more project I get to be involved in to help develop a state-of-the-art communication site that will hopefully be used by the broadcasters,” said Lyons.

Come on guys go with the glass...When that beautiful pinnacle arrives at the top of the spire it needs to look like you are all dressed formal for a big coming out party for the whole world to see.

OK, now a side post for your wonderful city. When this finally happens. I know money is omnipresent in everything but for your city as a whole. Move all the stuff on top of the ESB to the WTC. Then restore the ESB as a pristine national monument as it deserves ( so if King Kong comes sometime he has a roost. PS. He is about to premier here in Melbourne. But you guys wont get that till it opens on Broadway ) You have to look at the big picture OK.........New York is Numero Uno so listen to me OK....

Can someone photoshop the Twin Towers ... "antenna" on top of the new One WTC and replace its... "spire" with it?

I kinda want to look just how One WTC would look with the old antenna instead of this new spire.....

Yep, and this is a better view:
