I feel like they need to paint the spire. It looks rusty, even though I know it's not. I think it'd look much better either pure white (like the Sears tower) or jet black. Something other than... I guess gunbolt metal.

But we all know they won't. Everything design-wise is set in stone now.

It's possible in future renovations(15-20 years from now).

Silverstein had big renovation plans for the twins before they were destroyed.
I know they planned on fixing the cladding, most noticable on the South Tower.

Just wondering, how tall is each floor? By the looks of it I'm asumming it's 3 meters high like the old WTC?

They're several feet taller, hence the lower floor count.

I love the design for 70 Pine Street (which I call the American International Building). It looks a little like Chrysler Building and the Woolworth Building.

That picture was either taken after midnight and/or is old, right? Because the spire's not lit. And the beauty of this photo is that you could actually see the parapet and the vents at night.

Looks like it's after midnight as all the other special lights on other towers are off.
