Ah I see, I wasn't actually sure what the plan was for 3WTC. The picture makes me miss the cross-bracing. Anyway I don't think the edges of 1WTC needs to be lit. If the comm ring is somehow illuminated, it will make it look more "complete" and less abrupt.

Stop quoting an entire post with images! People shouldn't have to scroll through the same huge images again and again.

You probably wouldn't love it if you were in an office building just across from it getting blinded every day at work.

Sweet!

For those of you who have a Netflix account, stateside only I think. Check out a documentary just released called 16 Acres.

It basically gives an account on how much BS this whole site had to go through with all the politics at play in a game of tug of war between Twenty gov’t agencies, politicians, architects, developers, local residents and the families of 9/11 whom all have something to say that has slowed the process to a crawl that has taken approximately a dozen years to finally get this site to what it is today ever since that dreaded day on September 11.

Pretty hilarious stuff and I recommend if you have not checked it out already.

16 ACRES TRAILER:
The dramatic inside story of the monumental collision of interests at Ground Zero in the decade after 9/11.

Why do people continue to insist calling this site "Ground Zero" after all these years? Really annoys me.

I have to admit, I was originally not a fan of the design of the tower... but now that its almost completed, it makes total sense and basically looks like a sort of mirage of the twin towers... very clever, it came out very nice.

They should light up the edges of the tower. Only on special occasions though.
