Now that I think about it, the old renderings do show sections of the spire covered.

Doesn't each platform hold the lights that shine on each section above it?

After looking at that photo and a render from 2012, this is what the spire will look like

I think that's the case, too. I always thought that the platforms are there to hold the radome as seen in the initial plan.

Turns out the coverings on the spire are UHF panels for antenna installation.

I think this tower definitely benefits from the value engineering of 3 WTC and the redesign of 2 WTC. Definitely helps it stand out more.

It was interesting to see how One WTC would look like, had it been designed with tiers.
Tiered design has some advantages: it's safer for maintenance, it's easier and cheaper to build, cheaper to clad, it's much more convenient for architectural and MEP/HVAC design, it allows for additional features, improves the interiors utilization, and offers many more additional advantages.
So this is how it will be, if we would keep the tower's dimensions, but introduce tiers instead of the slanted surfaces. The original image is a high resolution picture (click to see more details).

Saw this posted on YIMBY Forums, explains why we can't seem to get those windows clean:

http://therealdeal.com/2016/11/23/sk...dows-of-1-wtc/

Quote:
A majority of the windows at One World Trade Center haven’t been washed since 2015, because the system used to suspend the washers isn’t safe, a representative for the Durst Organization TRData LogoTINY told The Real Deal. Typically, a boom at the top of the building lowers a window-washing rig that moves horizontally as the boom moves along a track on the roof. But in early 2016, Durst noticed that welding in the track — where pieces of metal are joined together — was riddled with cracks. The track, built in 2013, also has undersized bolts and suffers from other design flaws, said Jordan Barowitz, a spokesperson for Durst.

“The window washing units at One World Trade Center have failed and are being replaced,” Barowitz said in a statement. The developer is in the process of finding a company that will build a new system, which is expected to cost millions of dollars (though a total price has yet to be determined).
