What are the white cables running up the sides of the spire?

I feel the same way. Rushing home from work to see those beams was great fun. Just to think last year around this time we were watching the final beams go up.

I don't think they are going to do it, But I wish they dismantle at least the upper part of the external elevator in the next days.

I decided to post this for my 100th post!

I guess you can just imaging 4 WTC is there, and you'll get what the World Trade Center will look like in 2014 (plus those random glass buildings).

That's great! You can see construction progress every day (hopefully it'll be finished in 50 years)!

He is not asking about the Guy wires; he's asking about some random cables hanging down vertically on the spire.

It's been asked before but nobody seems to have any information about them. It's bit of a mystery.

That's an old render of the building.

And... It's officially without the crane (at least without the biggest part)

We're getting closer to the renders... And it's AWESOME.

It'll soon go beyond the renders, since at some point they should install the satellite things on the ring. I don't see why they wouldn't, since those will be one of the most functional parts of the ring.

It just won't be a uniform pattern as renders display.

At least until all the space on the ring is claimed.

Are there any render with the "satellite things on the ring" with this final antenna design?
