Hello and welcome. The slits on the upper mechanical floors are used for MPE ventilation as well as to collect rain water and recycle that to help power the building. This is one of the factors that are contributing to the LEED status. One of the first designs of the back then "freedom tower" did indeed have wind turbines up top. Hope that cleared up your question.

What's the name of the building rising simultaneously to 1WTC on that timelapse? It looks fairly tall.

4WTC I think (although I didn't watch the whole video because my Internet's slow)

Thanks, but 4WTC - which I can easily recognize - is at the left side from 1WTC; the one I mean is to the right of it, and looks just as tall

That's 388 Bridge St. building in Brooklyn.

The LED lighting is pretty cool, but the wind turbines at the top makes the building much more awesome.

I admit, the building will look a lot better once the internal structure becomes more visible as an architectural element.

Amazing how the metal edge cladding cuts through the glass now that it's been cleaned.
Also, is that fencing still around the Brookfield Place entrance?
