I still don't get why this tower is complete. It doesn't even look complete; 2/3 of it looks like a hallow shell at night, and there's still the eastern base.

SSC doesn't count the interior. And the Eastern part looks like it will be finished off when they finish the transit system or even the PAC next door.

I get the fact that all the tenants didn't move in yet so it still has a lot of construction lighting and that the eastern base is apparently part of the Performing Arts Center, but I'm surprised to see it was moved into the DN archives before 4 World Trade Center. I'll miss checking it first thing when I come on the site.

Starting this upcoming Monday, 1 WTC will be using projectors in the lobby to create bright tree patterns on the walls and washes of colors to mimic day turning to night, with soft morning pinks and sunset oranges. In the evening as tenants leave, stars will appear on the ceiling.

Candles have been crafted and fitted with small pieces of bobbing acrylic in the shape of a flame, lit with LED bulbs and a fan that causes it to flicker, while rectangular menorahs will be finished in stainless steel, wood grains or a white high-gloss powder coating.

This all of course is for the upcoming holidays, in which Durst is highly involved in all throughout his buildings.

I want to see either falling snowflakes or icicles recreated in the podium lighting. I think if done right it would have a nice effect...although people may not want to see ice falling from the WTC again...

Surrounding the Durst Organization’s headquarters at One Bryant Park will be a forest of 23 free-standing white trees that are laser-cut to represent traditional Scandinavian paper cutouts.
