I've been saying all along the spire would look great, even if the radome would have been better. I find myself liking it more and more as I realize what a striking connection it gives between 1WTC and its predecessor.

I agree. It just has that awesome Constructivist character, with a Gotham feel at night, with the lighting

every time i look at this building i feel like the kid in checkout who just asked his mom for a candy bar and was told emphatically, "no". i can cope with the towers uninspiring geometry but the roof is where i draw the line. the round structure on the roof and the spire has no relation of any kind, be it architecturally or visually, to the tower. i'm not saying that disparate pieces should not exist in a tower but those pieces certainly should have the capacity to speak to one another and the tower regardless of what they say. the circular crown and spire are having small talk at best but the tower doesn't even know they exist. i'm really still in shock that this happened.

I love how the base is looking! It's very futuristic and imposing. Especially since they decided to square off the corners (the old design with the angled corners was kind of lame in my opinion). This will be incredible to see when it's complete!

The base cladding has been a nice surprise! Just wait until it's lit up at night!

Admit it, even if they would have gone with the original design for the base, you would still be commending it.

this building looks cool but the mechanical floors not lit up at the top look bad, and it's exactly where the plane hit.

Other than that nice building

Maybe this is intentional ? The building is truly amazing.

this tour guide might have the blandest voice in the city. Nice view of the tower, though.
