In my opinion, I say, the radome is tacky, and glad that they scrapped it. Can't wait for them to light it up... I think that date will be July 4th.

By roof height, yes. By official height it may or may not be taller.

What about 4WTC? It's already the world's biggest mirror. Making it brighter is almost impossible at this point.

it's a safety net like what used to wrap around the tower. Fences aren't quite as safe
This probably means that more work requiring people to be on the rings will be done. I'm guessing they're going to dismantle the doghouse.

Honestly, that's probably the best picture I've seen of this building.
