If you're looking for a great replica of this tower, here's one. I've ordered quite a few from this site. They're very high quality.

If that's skylobby they have made a huge progress since the end of September (when I was inside the tower on a tour).

Looks like netting has been removed from the communication rings! Not sure whether this is good or bad thing, they made the tower look more unfinished but also gave the rings more substance...

Yea you're right, 9/11 isn't a sensitive topic. And don't tell me to get over myself, I don't live on this forum 24/7
