Alright guys, this is what I have so far. I angled it so Version Three is on the left and Version Two is on the right. I'm squeezed for time for a few days, but I'll eventually move on to the rings and the actual building and build it from the top down so I can get some nice spire renders. BTW it seems like most of you have forgotten. After the temporary dog house is removed, giant chutes will extend from the top of the cooling towers to just above the level of the rings. It will direct the hot and humid air away from the equipment on the rings. Any way, as promised, here are the newest renderings.

You are correct. They saved $20 million.

It's not as bad as in the renderings thankfully but still (obviously) not as cool as a spire would have been.

Does anybody know what they are building next to the side east side of the tower, right next to the temp. PATH station where the tree planter is covered...looks like a connection to the hoist...

Shanghai Tower's Steel super columns and core combined are probably larger than this whole tower. This building doesn't even have a core. Most supertalls in China have giant core and super column. Just to give you an idea how strong and massive some buildings are compared to 1WTC.

Uh this tower has a core, and its probably 10x stronger then Shanghai all together, actually I'm pretty sure it is.

You should know what youre talking about before you speak. This building has the strongest core of any building currently in existence. If the moon crashed into the earth, the core of this building would still be standing.

Post of the year.

1WTC uses 14,000 PSI strong concrete.

Please research information like that before you post something so unbelievable wrong, this buildings core is one of the, if not the strongest on the planet

Now I have a question. Is there any news on the installing of the glass panels at the base and the top of the building? It seems like the progress has been frozen.
It hasn't been this bad in ages. Now that construction is winding up, people don't have anything else to talk about so they rag on other skyscrapers.

-TDN- was hilariously wrong though.

That post you quoted is so ignorant. That "concrete" happens to be the strongest in the world and is used to make the strongest dams worldwide

Rumors say 1WTC is the only building in the world that can withstand a nuke... Now tell me how that is 'weak'?

If the main roof is 1,334 feet 8 inches, then would that mean the total height of the spire (with lightning rod) is 457 feet? I don't recall any building with a taller one.

Exactly, but when changes are literally made within such a short period of time for a project which has been going on for a decade, it make no sense at all.

Again, where is the proof? The base change was done for safety reasons. The removable of the radome might have been removed to save a few bucks, that I agree on, but looking at the diagrams of the radome you can see how hard it would have been to provide mantaince on it. Imagine being in there in the summer or winter weather.
Safety? More like laziness and declining ambition, both contradictory to what made this country great. I know the majority of you are foreigners, but understand we're (or in my case, "were") a lot more passionate about this project. Yes, the base was changed to concrete for safety reasons, but does that mean a square block with unmatching glass panels is the only other option? Couldn't they have found a way from keeping the glass from falling, rather than giving up? Proof? It's a long read if you have the patience.
