the base is looking much nicer now that there's a good amount of office lighting above it.

After years of watching this tower rise from nothing to what it now has become, I am excited to report that I will be visiting the city for the first time in a few weeks

looks like they might've lit the base up colorfully... did anyone catch it?

For Christmas I decided to get myself a One WTC 3D model. And although some of the details differed than those of the actual tower (mostly because it uses an old design), I was very impressed at how it captured the feel of the tower.

Stopped by the site yesterday for the first time
and I have to say that after following progress on the site for 7 years
I was BLOWN AWAY of the size and scale of everything when I saw it. Enjoy the pics!






















The lighting of the base is perfect,
I don't think photos and videos accurately depict how it looks,
in person it is the perfect tone and brightness and you really have to visit yourself to see its beauty.






The two shattered canopy panels have been replaced,
but the lettering has not yet been put back on top.




I'm guessing these are maintenance access doors
and i'm not sure if they will eventually be lit like the rest of the base,
you can't see in the photo but one of the panels was cracked.




The West plaza looks beautiful lit at night.
