When it comes to communities on the internet being reliable, I bet you guys are the number one!!! So as am writing an research paper about perspective and 3D anamorphic illusions, I focused on drawing the whole World Trade Center complex in 3D...but to do this, I need a very detailed map of south manhattan/ the wtc complex...may some of you find something? I would really appreciate it! If you would like to know what I am referring to (3D anamorphism) just visit my instagram account "mxbhr"...I did this with the ESB!

Thank you all and sorry for being a bit off topic

(Just send me a DM if you don't want to spam the thread!)

No. The master plan will be far superior.

Opening to tenants November, and One World Observatory is opening Q1 next year.

Ok, that last pic just kicks A.
I think 1WTC always looks great, but at night it's just plain cool!
Thanks for posting!

That last picture makes it look like a looming tower of evil. Maybe it will show up in a Batman or Sci. Fi. flick sometime.

1 WTC appeared in The Dark Knight Rises as part of the Gotham City skyline but it wasn't topped out. The movie came out in 2012 but it showed the tower as it looked during 2011.

1 WTC still isn't finished and has already made a number of film and video game appearances.

So what's the deal with the beacon?
Do they plan on fixing it? Anyone with inside info?

The LED boxes on the lower portion of the mast aren't working correctly, which isn't anything new.

I think his LED comments were unrelated to those photos, but I did wonder what those red bands inside the top-most mechanical floors are. Would be pretty cool if the vents lit up!

The mechanical floors will be lit like how they were when they were tested that night. It will always be white, same goes for the roof mechanical floors.
