Am I the only one that's gonna miss the blue construction lights? I love how it makes the tower stand out like a beacon at night.

I arrived in the city for the first time in my life last night via the Holland Tunnel. OMG Words cannot come close to explaining the magnitude of this tower and how it stands against the sky. The sight of it from Jersey is beautiful at night. But to be next to it and the Memorial Pools was breathtaking. Pictures do no justice for this tower and the city. Also, I love the subways.

So what will be in the sky lobby, other than a transfer to other elevators?

Nothing other than sculptures and paintings. Similar to old skylobbys.

Feels like they're missing an opportunity for something there. Could put a starbucks kiosk in there or something.

Hmm... Is the skylobby finished yet? I don't see the granite pavers and stainless steel strips.

Yeah you could definitely fit a mini starbucks in that far corner.

Pretty sure the skylobby is substantially complete. Planters might be going in up there.

there's still a lot of outfitting left to do... will it be done as soon as possible or will 2/3 of 1 WTC look like a construction site until tenants fill it completely?
