In the future could be 2000 years from now. The joke.

Does anyone know if the mechanical floors will be lit up once this building is completed? They show them as being lit up in some renderings but I'm getting worried that won't be the case.

That's the plans, at least from what I've heard. The podium hasen't been lit (except for tests), but I can assure you it will be. The same should go for the mechanical floors.

here's how Dbox depicts the mechanical levels at night. Other than the radome there hasn't been anything we know of that they've changed when it comes to the lighting scheme of the tower.

Wasn't there supposed to be a 80-90 floor hotel going up close to 7WTC by now? Just took a peek at the threads going back for several pages and I don't see it so I guess it's dead or on hold.


Edit: Cool I found the thread and it's u/c. 30 Park Place is what I was whining about. 937ft

Interesting, there's some ropes hanging down the south side of the spire.

Pretty sure that's condos and it's not dead at all, it's already over 20 floors high and rising fast

When they were installing the led boxes for the lightning of the spire, they used similar ropes...maybe the want to repair the beacon?

Looks like they are hoisting something big up to the top of the spire. A part to repair the beacon?

Shots of 1 WTC will be seen in this new movie, where a lot of the setting is in an office at 4 WTC!

I'm glad they're trying to repair the beacon. I need to see it flash every few seconds again. I think it's very interesting that the top of the spire can shine a very bright light at me every few seconds, and I'd like to go 50 miles away from Lower Manhattan to see if the beacon is REALLY visible. It adds a lot of interest to Manhattan. And I hope by the time the repair is completed and/or the building is completed, the spire itself will be brighter.

And weindcol, I've never really enjoyed Annie, but I would TOTALLY watch the movie just because it took place in 4 World Trade Center. I think it's kind of funny this movie takes place in modern times.

I see on the Earthcam they are continuing to hoist up smaller pieces. Hopefully they can fully repair it before dusk or it may not be on tonight.
