Does anyone know why they have no attached the final glass points on all four facades. I believe there was suppose to be a glass window element that was a tiny fin that brought the glass to a very small point, it seems as though they haven't added it. If you look at where the tapered façade ends, you can see that there is a tiny triangle piece of glass which goes to a point, however on the other end at the very top of the tower, they have not added them.

Last panels? We're months away from the last panels.

Around 90% of the floors are still missing windows.

They probably forgot about them.

Otie brought that up a couple of months ago. Not even he knew why.

Still unknown why they weren't placed yet.

I've always loved views of the One WTC and Woolworth. It's like a mingle of the future and the past. It'll look even cooler with 30 Park Place.

So it's been a long time since I posted some of my WTC pics from my Minecraft server, but here goes. I would like to thank wtcforever for helping me create this amazing replica.

One WTC's beacon, roof lights, day/night FAA light are automatic (it flashes), as well as 7 WTC's roof lighting, 4 WTC's FAA lights (they flash), and the Twin Tower Reflecting pool lights.











One WTC's roof mechanical lol

Often it is the inside of the glass that is dirty. Either that or they did a terrible washing job.

Not quite yet, that's the north side of the building. Gap is on the east side.
