When will the mechanical floors be fitted for lights? It's the only thing missing, really, from the overall structure. Looks weird with black areas at night.

Did I already mention how much I love the tower's color changing abilities?

Upper mechanical floors almost fully enclosed! It's already looking so much better with that glass being filled in, and pretty quickly too

the sky was pretty dynamic today, and with that goes how 1 WTC's cladding appears.

The orange netting around the communication rings is finally being removed. This will make it look so much more completed when it's all off!

Don't forget, the satellite dishes are still yet to be installed, so the communication rings might not look completed for a while.

And by the way, on Wednesday night, I saw One World Trade Center's spire lit up from Manhattan! (Usually I only get to see it from the other boroughs.) It didn't look as bright as I expected it to be, and the horizontal beam of light that was supposed to make the tower resemble an old fashioned lighthouse wasn't as visible as it was supposed to be. And the bottom of the spire was a dark reddish color the whole night and didn't match the color on top(but I heard that was some kind of technical issue that was fixed?) And the top of the spire didn't change nearly as quickly as I expected (like the Bank of America Tower's ). I think it only changed color from gold to purple that night.

But it seems that I have made this spire look like worthless trash, but before you start calling me an ungrateful crybaby, let me just say that the overall impression that the spire had on me was fantastic. The comments I made earlier were just me being critical with all these expectations. After all, this is my favorite tower. The beacon on top looked like a little orb, and it flashed every few seconds, a little like on foggy or rainy days, except that the beacon is actually on at night, and not just flashing every few seconds with non-illumination in between, like in the daytime. And the whole spire looked like a magic wand, making New York look a little more modern. I can't wait until the rest of the tower is lit up to make a fantastic light show every night.

That was when the spire was not as bright and some LEDs were burned out. The spire is much brighter now and all LEDs are functional right now.

Capital New York:

Condé Nast W.T.C. digs ‘well underway,’ move begins November
By Joe Pompeo 2:18 p.m. | Feb. 18, 2014

Quote:
Condé Nast is beginning the rollout of its upcoming move to 1 World Trade Center, the soaring skyscraper where it has agreed to live for at least the next 25 years.

In one of the first significant internal communications about the move since Condé Nast signed a lease in May 2011, employees of the magazine publisher were informed today that the relocation from their long-time offices at 4 Times Square will begin in November, Capital has learned.

"I am pleased to share that the interior construction of our new space at 1WTC is well underway," chief executive Chuck Townsend wrote in a memo obtained by Capital. "This relocation represents a historic moment for our company and symbolizes the enormous transformation we have undergone in the past few years. ... As the anchor tenant in one of the world’s most anticipated architectural sites, we have an unprecedented opportunity to take part in shaping the future of New York City."

Condé Nast's move to 1 World Trade Center, a joint development between the Port Authority and The Durst Organization, has a transformative potential for Lower Manhattan, which has slowly but steadily been rebuilding its economy since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Condé Nast's glamorous employees are expected to bring a new cachet to the area around the new World Trade Center, raising the bar for local food, retail and hospitality businesses.

The company, publisher of such venerable titles as Vogue, The New Yorker and Vanity Fair, is also seen as the centerpiece of what appears to be a burgeoning media boom in Lower Manhattan.

As Capital reported last week, 15 media companies committed to relocating to the area from 2011 through the first six months of last year, bringing the total number of media tenants to around 80, according to the Alliance for Downtown New York. News and publishing outlets in the vicinity include American Media Inc., the Daily News, Newsweek, The Village Voice and Fast Company. Time Inc. is said to be weighing a move to Lower Manhattan as well.

Condé Nast will be the first major corporate tenant to set up shop inside 1 World Trade Center, a protracted construction project the represents the rebirth of Lower Manhattan and the resilience of a post-9/11 New York.

At 1,776 feet and 104 floors—24 of which will be occupied by Condé Nast—the building is America's tallest, though roughly 1.4 million square feet remains unleased. Condé Nast's 25-year deal was packed with tax incentives and worth a reported $2 billion.

Townsend's memo touted "the most innovative elements of energy and environmental design" as well as "advanced office technology." He added that "many of our technology and production colleagues," including employees of Condé Nast Entertainment, will move from 1166 Avenue of the Americas to three redesigned floors at 222 Broadway, adjacent to 1 World Trade Center.

The company's 1.2 million square feet of office space on floors 20 through 44 of 1 World Trade include "amenity floors" on 34 and 35 "connected by an extraordinary, interior spiral staircase," according to Townsend's memo. "These floors will house our visitors reception, conference center, library, auditorium, art gallery, private dining, cafeteria and after-hours café.."
.....

A friend of mine works for Conde Nast. I've already made him promise to let me visit him in his new office.

Also, I'm surprised by how much I'm liking the rings now that the netting has been largely removed.

Yep, now all they'll have to do is removing those yellow sticks. Or are those permanent?

I wonder if the 2 russian guys who got to the top of Shanghai Tower be able to get past One World Trade's security when the tower crane was still there

I assume security here is tighter

Nope, XYZ Buildings. Similar facade to the original WTC.
