Yah, chaiopen, that design is sexy as hell. Totally love the 2 tone iconic color scheme. In fact, it makes me think of the classic black NYC silhouettes, which still traditionally features the twin rectangles of the old WTC. Seeing the new tower's design here really seems to solidify to me the evolution of popular perception of the NYC skyline. Or maybe that's a stretch, but its an amazing set up nonetheless.

I don't see why they would use the hoist to move in, the elevators are extremely narrow, they probably wouldn't be much use.

Indeed, you don't see that angle much.

It may sound weird but let's hope in 5 years 1WTC isn't visible anymore from that angle.

Not sure if 2WTC will be finished in 2019. We're hoping for the best though

Thank God.

Assistant Director of Security at 1WTC to Resign

One of the men in charge of security at One World Trade Center is resigning.

The news follow a break-in earlier this month and the arrests this week of three daredevils who parachuted off the skyscraper in September.

Daniel Vasquez is the building's assistant director of security.

Though the Port Authority owns the property and is responsible for perimeter security, Vasquez works for the Durst Organization, which took over building security in January.

A spokesperson for the Durst Organization says that Vasquez will remain on for a transitional period.

The Port Authority is not commenting.

Another **** up by Durst.....

I was reading an article last night- apparently they had one security guard who was blind in one eye, and had compromised vision in the other. Yikes.

Wow.. fail fail and more fail, now if only Durst himself could somehow be fired that would be great.

I hope they either finish all of the security systems soon (if they haven't been completed yet), strengthen the security system, and/or at least fix the hole in the fence.

Excuse my language but why in the hell would you want them to strengthen the security they already going to have security Posts on every corner of the World Trade Center. It's not you but I will actually like to walk in the World Trade Center to take a picture without being frisked. Oh god I hope they get sued before this is complete.
