Good to see this building top off. It will definitely add beauty to the NY skyline.

Durst Organization hires state trooper to run 1 WTC security
Major in New Jersey State Police department brought on following string of breaches




June 16, 2014

Quote:
The Durst Organization selected a major in the New Jersey State Police force to oversee private security at One World Trade Center. The appointment follows a series of breaches that led to the dismissal of the former head of security.

Major Kevin Fowler will take the reins at 1 WTC next month, replacing former FBI agent David Valazquez, DNAinfo reported. Fowler told DNAinfo that he will focus on working closely with the Port Authority and the NYPD, and will not enact any major changes until he has consulted with Durst and law enforcement agencies.

Fowler has worked for the state police for 27 years and, according to his LinkedIn profile, served as a principal security planner for the Super Bowl in February, DNAinfo reported.

Security at 1 WTC came under scrutiny in September when four base jumpers managed to get into the tower and then leap from the top. In February, a 16-year-old New Jersey resident also broke into the site and made his way to the top of the building.

Minor, but the red FAA light (night mode) is now working again.

Rather ugly, people in the USA are tasteless. supertall like this will never be built in France or Europe, except in Germany, since they are equally tasteless as Americans.

One idiot's word doesn't represent a nation so let's not get carried away. Speaking of the idiot, he sounds like he doesn't travel much in his own country, he should go to La Defense and see what are the most banal skyscrapers in Europe let alone the world. Maybe he should cross the English Channel and see the few but quality scrapers London has been building (NYC is way out of that league to compare).

Just forget about the ignorant man's comment and get back to the discussion on the construction of this tower. For starters, the 21-22 floors office lights are on tonight.

They've been on the past few weeks. Glad to see regular office lighting on this tower.
