Horrible quality, but podium lighting being tested!

Did the architects somehow forget to put in a freight elevator?

This is a sample of what the base lighting could end up looking like. The lights will have the ability to change colors just as the spire does.



So for those concerned about the lighting test that went on this evening and night, don't be. It was just a test.

I think once the tower is finished, with the interior completed and the base lit up, people will quickly forget the idea of a 'concrete bunker'

I know if I never knew about the tower, my first impression of it would be, "Wow! This building is gorgeous!" "Bunker" would be the last thing to come to mind.

30 Park Place will probably be rising in front of Woolworth in around 2 years time.

apparently, these are what some of the tickets to SB 48 look like. Nice to see 1 WTC on there.

Some pics of 1 WTC and the complex made on my Minecraft server. Tower measures 49x49 blocks, the roof height is 210, and spire is 256 blocks tall. (Click images for full size)





(The beacons and roof lights are automatic)


(The perimeter lights of the Twin Tower Footprints are automatic, as well.)
