Very reminiscent to the Twins.

The lobby evokes the feeling of a classical temple for me, It's nice indeed.

I really think they're doing a superb job on the new WTC. It's modern, it's elegant, but not tacky. It fits in well with the existing buildings on NYC. The interior is simple, the way it should be. Couldn't ask for a better replacement that respects the deceased twin towers yet emboldens New York as the resilient and global city it is.

Those are already installed, so it should be tested soon.

No, but I can assure you it will be the way it was supposed to be when it's finished.

Does anyone have any idea why it's taking so long? I mean, the weather's pretty good in general.

Oh, I see. The top priorities are getting the building completed, mechanical and regular floor lighting tested, and the beautification of the Plaza as well as the lobby, as opposed to fixing the beacon, right?

Correct. Also testing and commissioning of all MPE systems as well as finishing public areas of the tower.

So, I'm guessing the beacon's not going to be ON on July 4th. Hmm. Ironic, huh?
