Well since I have a server, I used WorldEdit so didn't take incredibly long. I had about 3 people helping. Thanks, also!

Have they turned on all the lights? On earthcam, it looked like the lower part of the base did not have it's lights on yet.

I was down by the WTC last night. From what I can tell the lights you're seeing at the base are construction flood lights not the lighting of the base cladding. It was most obvious from the openings where the external hoist is. From what I can tell, they removed some temporary form work/scaffolding and what we are now seeing is the openings (slits)in the base cladding which is allowing the light to shine through.

EDIT:

As seen in the photo below, all of the scaffolding and forms (behind the steel super structure) have now been removed.

Do they have FAA lights on the roof and communication rings now? The past few nights I've seen several red lights up there.

How do you know that? I can't see it on earthcam because apparently, it's still day! They haven't updated the image yet.
