Agreed 100%. It makes 1WTC feel like part of a wider city because of the similarities to other spires on the horizon.

Also, I think the spire looks fine now. But it will look a whole lot better when the telecommunications stuff is on the donut. The Spire looks weird now because it's a harsh transition from smooth glass to bumpy, metallic metal.

Any estimates for when the East external elevator will be removed?

Will the dishes on the communication rings be uniform or all have the same covering on them as suggested in the renderings? Or will it look like a sloppy mess of all different sizes and types of dishes up there?

There will not be a continuous ring of identical dishes as depicted in the renders. Look at the equipment on other buildings currently used for communication antennas. It doesn't require that many dishes.

The renderings show a whole ton of dishes though, if they are all the same size it will make the ring look more solid.

The renderings doesn't show an exact accurate visualiazation of how the dishes would look.

Even so, it's up to the tenants if they want to use it for broadcasting. The ring could sit up there empty for many years.

There's something about the lobby that just looks ethereal. The sunlight, maybe.

I'm sure they'll find a way to ruin the top more because that's what Durst and the PA are good at, being terrible.

That and also the grand scale combined with the sleek elegance of the plain white marble I suppose. It certainly seems otherworldly and quite hypnotic

There's nothing stopping them from putting mock dishes between the real ones to make a continuous ring of circles.
