I dunno, but will they even be there? It's beginning to be suspicious that even in such a late phase of roof assembly none of them has been added

Can anyone tell me about the lighting for this tower? I hope they just keep with simple and classic lighting by turning on the lights in some rooms and leaving some off like the old WTC and not any colorful gimmicks or like Goldman and light up the entire building.

The vent hoods actually look really cool in the renderings. I love how the atmoshpere on the roof looks. It's almost like a giant industrial Colosseum. The mast stands in the center and the communications ring encompasses it like a stadium and the soon to be vent hoods tower imposingly against the communications ring. It reminds me of a gladiator ring--metaphorically speaking (for those on here who are too literal).

This is very reminiscent to this old photograph featuring the original architects of famous New York art deco landmarks. Notice architect William Van Alen standing in the center dressed fantastically in his costume of the Chrysler Building.

It almost looks the original WTC from the side, and a bright new gleaming building when you face the vertical slits.

Beautiful building no doubt, if this was anywhere else in NYC it would of gained my full support. Quick question I want to know, sorry if it's off topic. If Larry who owns the site wanted the originals rebuilt, why wernt they in the end and who got the final say? Cause the way I see it, it swayed more to the option of a rebuild than anything else public and owner wise.

Will the diagonal columns around the podium be visible through the faceted glass at night ? Seems they are masked in daylight hours. I know they are structural so probably not required to be seen anytime...

I don't think they are visible at any point during the day/night. There were with the original prismatic glass.

Maybe its grand opening ceremony will be 2014, because 13 is bad number.
