I thought they were located 64-69, and I also thought those horrible looking vents were test ones for Conde Nast.

Oh my, so these vents are going to stay? What a horrible decision, it absolutely ruins the flow of the facade.

One World Trade Center is Now The World’s Third-Tallest Building

Quote:
November 17, 2014
NEW YORK CITY – The 541-meter (1,776-foot) One World Trade Center has now become the world’s third-tallest building, according to the height criteria set by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). One World Trade Center now ranks only behind the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE (828 meters) and the Makkah Royal Clock Tower in Mecca, Saudi Arabia (601 meters) in the tallest building stakes. The office building at the center of the massive rebuilt World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, New York, opened its doors Nov. 3 to an anchor tenant, media company Condé Nast.

it's pretty annoying to look at, actually. It does a damn good job of ruining the seamless look of the glass facade.

Yeah, they do. I probably should have worded my statement better, obviously if you look at the tower in its entirety or look at it from a distance, the vents are barely noticeable. Once you take a closer look at it though or especially focus on the upper half of the facade, they do noticeably break up the flow.
For a clear understanding, I'm not referring to the huge "grey" vents which are present on every side of the tower. I'm referring to the smaller vents some floors lower which do not match the rest of the facade at all, let alone are well incorporated.

Floors filling up fast at 1 World Trade Center

"...the latest lease at the Port Authority and Durst Organization’s 1 WTC, location-based mobile advertising firm xAd has just taken the tower’s entire 60th floor with 43,849 square feet..."

I can't say much about the music (haven't heard it), but I love the Foo Fighters new album cover; I believe it marks 1wtc's album cover debut.
Pretty sweet!
