They are? When I look on Earthcam nothing's happening.


And also, the One WTC plaza looks so beautiful right now.

And just as I suspected, the beacon is indeed off for repairs.

Well that's a good sign. How long has it been, now? Three months? I'll tell ya, I've never been terribly impressed with the lighting on 1WTC.

Well of course it's not going to be perfect, the building is still largely under construction. Once it's opened, the spire will change colors randomly just like Durst's other towers and the mechanical floors will also be lit.

They can change colors however they want, that won't make that spire more noticeable or more attractive. It only looks decent from up close but from a distance it just looks like a colored stick, it comes nothing close to the ESB spire.
I hope they'll at least make the beacon more powerful to draw more attention to it.

Do you think the spire will look "stickish" once the mechanical floors are lit up? Maybe the top part of the building being lit will bring more balance to the spire?

i dont think there are yet
I haven't found any screenshots with the tower in it either but there is one from a scene that also had the building as a backdrop. From this particular angle it is not visible but there certainly were some other camera angles in the same scene from which you could see the tower clearly. There is also one scene were Spidey swings through the city and one can make out just the top of the building. And towards the end there is a scene in which you can see the silhouette of the building from afar. I'm not gonna give away the location of that particular scene because that would be a major spoiler.

So the communication rings are going to be left like that? Sort of has an unfinished look to me.

No, they will be filled up just like in the earlier renderings. They will remain empty until Durst can get broadcasting tenants which shouldn't be too far down the road.

This topic has come up a number of times previously, and if I remember correctly, everyone is just speculating on what the end result will be.

It is my opinion that the communication rings will never be filled and certainly never filled with visually appeal repetition all the way around. Instead, it is likely to look like pretty much any other broadcast location. That means a fairly random looking assortment of dishes and linear antenna elements spaced sporadically as needed.
