Wow, NW cladding for the final few floors seems to be about 80% complete. I'd expect the tower to be fully clad by the end of this week or beginning of next by the looks of things now.

Really? I envy the universe where 3,000 people didn't die, but to each their own.

Looking at the spire, it doesn't look remotely complete, it looks like a mounting pole for comms equipment, incomplete without the coverings of the radome. Of course nothing can be done till the equipment (if any) is installed.

By that logic, no antenna in the western hemisphere looks completed.

No radome of such width and purpose has ever been added to any building in the western hemispere. The only real architectural radomes currently up are thin, like the one at the New York Times Tower.

I agree 1Filipe. I think it looks great the way it is. The radome enclosure was to fat to me.

New, (possibly) never before typed sentence: If I don't play the pipe organ tomorrow I'll model the Comm rings. In addition, I'll try to model the 89th floor and up so that I can (attempt to) make a 1080p photo-realistic animation of the top of the tower(assuming it doesn't require a week to render). I just made a render for the 3WTC thread and it took nearly three hours with lighting in just the lobby and reflective lobby materials.

What's going on with base cladding for the west and north side of the building?

if there's a parallel universe, then it's evil, which means 1WTC has a beard.

Seriously guys shut the **** up about the Radome and whether the stick will be counted or whatever because we are sick of it. Go AWAY. I and many others come on this thread to hear news about the building and see pretty pictures not some pathetic whingers whining about something the can't change so shut up about it. Your entitled to have an opinion but for heavens sake.

So stop the "If parallel universes do exist, then theirs one universe that 1 wtc has it's radome, i envy that universe." and "This sucks bla bla bla" we don't want to hear it. Write it in your flipping diary but not on SSC!!!

MORE PICS, MORE NEWS, MORE POSITIVE DISCUSSION and LESS OMG IT SO DAMN UgLi!!

Although it is a very nice building, in my opinion it cheats for height and does not have the prescience the old WTC had. We were cheated out!

Huh? It is almost exactly the same height as the former twins to roof, so when viewed from the sides, it has the same outline as one of the twins.

No offense, but you're on the other side of the planet. I've actually stood next to this building about 100 times, from when it was a mass of rebar below street level. I have been all over NYC and the hudson waterfront of NJ. I can tell you right now, the spire will not look right without the radome added, and frankly in my opinion should not be counted towards height until it does. There has been so much unbalanced compromise on the design from day one that the least they could do is actually follow through on this one simple thing. This will be a source of pride for many people, it makes no sense to do less than they could and leave it as an ugly "stick". NY times, BoA, 4 times square all have nice looking spires, this one is not pleasant visually because it isnt complete.
