Hopefully its partner will be taken down within the next 6 weeks as well. An apparently completed 1WTC exterior would be awesome to see.

Wall Street Stole Something From Me, and Failed.

Look who used my model! I even admit that they corrected some things with the cables, and they even added the platforms on the rings, even if they used a 2D face. I don't even mind that I get no credit for it, because I'm not going to pay for a membership to complain. They unfortunately confused the tiny blinking FAA beacon for the main rotating one forgot to take off the temporary platforms from the spire, or even add detail to the square section (third down). If you doubt my claim. Look at the link HERE and note that even the concrete cube it sits on is un-altered in the diagram above. While using it without asking is legal for any one, even you, they should give credit of some sort to the creator. I would like it if any one with a subscription could kindly ask for the small addition of my name "Peter A. Madrigal" to the work.

Oh, here's the other model they took. Base Model

Peter, welcome to the internet .

Stealing material is the sole reason of why I don't share the most important models to the Wharehouse. As much as I encourage people to give credit, they simply don't. I recognize myself I once used without your permission your very first model of the spire for a rendering, it looked quite good!

You should definitely contact the WSJ and ask at least for proper credit, those guys may earn money at your expense.

Won't those white satellite dishes be added on the ring once antenna wires are installed? It wouldn't make sense of them to leave the rings bare.

Only when they sign broadcast tenants will the dishes be placed on the rings, until then this is what we're looking at. Which in all honesty looks 1000% times better then I anticipated especially with those crappy renders they spit out real quick.

Superb cladding and overall shape but I have always found that the architects were unable to come up with a satisfying top. I do find it disappointing in the way they have managed to take a less than satisfactory completion to this otherwise great building. It just doesn't live up to New York's veritable style in skyscraper profiles.

no, the temporary staircase which connects the doghouse to the spire is still there. That goes first. With the doghouse crane gone, it's only a matter of time.

I bet some time in the future (probably 10 years or more down the road after the whole complex is done and opened) they will cover the mast in something. Who knows.
