The upper part will hopefully be cladded as soon as the elevator is down far enough.
True they have only taken the gates down to the 90th floor which is still office so I'm assuming all office floors will have the hoist until at least the end of this year.

It's strange to think the design of this building is 10 years old.

Amazing set of photos. I especially love the closeup of the beacon.

High-tech LEDs turning NYC skyline into a lightshow


[img]http://****************.wordpress.com/2014/01/skyline.jpg?w=720&h=480&crop=1[/img]

By Lois Weiss

Quote:
The city’s skyline is becoming a rainbow of dancing colors as more tall towers add programmable LEDs to their tops and antennas. What was once stagnant and mostly white or a primary color is now alive with tints and effects heretofore only seen on the Broadway stage.

Soon the nightly dance led by the Empire State Building will include the top of One World Trade Center, where the hues and swirling lights may be coordinated with those enlivening 4 Times Square and One Bryant Park — all owned in full or in part by the Durst Organization.

A spokesman for Durst declined to discuss their plans for turning on the spire lights at 1 WTC, but the company and co-owner, the Port Authority, have been testing them in the middle of some nights.

The Durst building LEDs are being programmed by Douglas Durst’s son-in-law Mark Domino, and can be controlled from his Android phone. “I’m very pleased with the spires on 4 Times Square and One Bryant Park,” said Durst last year.


Once 1 WTC’s 1,776-foot-high spire lights are added to the skyline, its nighttime silhouette will appear even taller than during the day, just as the Empire State Building’s full antenna lights make a dramatic difference, showing off its full height of 1,454 feet.

It wasn’t so long ago that the Empire’s three tiers of lights were changed by “a bunch of men changing gels,” and if a bulb burned out, there was a black void on the side of the building.

When owner Anthony Malkin, Chairman and CEO of the Empire State Realty Trust, traveled to Hong Kong and Shanghai nearly a decade ago, he recalled the “lights were truly amazing” even though he felt the skyline itself was not distinctive.

.....“I was walking down the street on one of the nights before Christmas,” Malkin recalled. “The people in the street were cheering at something, and I turned and looked, and it was at my building. And they weren’t even listening to the music.”

Nevertheless, Malkin considers having the lights synched to music on the Clear Channel stations as “crucial.”

Malkin also confided the Empire State Building will have a “star role” during Super Bowl week next month, but declined to share more.

“I love working with Marc; he is so smart and fun,” Malkin added. “The shows are getting better and we are getting better and better at doing them. For me, the skyline of New York is becoming more alive and we have caused everybody else to step up their game.”

Dear Durst Organization: It’s time to bring it on.

Superbowl 48, you can see the tower from the stadium comlex. Do it, Durst. The ESB's probably going to be lit according to who's in the lead, or something like that.

Structurally it is, but there's still some netting up there which is temporay.

Hmmm I am very interested to see what, or if, 1 WTC does anything during the Super Bowl or that week/weekend. Would be a good opportunity (in terms of spire lighting of course)
