you mean that back thing against the slurry wall just behind the north core? It's probably another staircase covered in protective sheeting.

Yes, we know 9/11 was awful. But let's move on and stay on topic.

Yes. This is the best rendering of the tower available:

Evolution of top of the tower:



if you look at the round thing at the base of the spire (whatever its called) in the photo below, this design must be very old design, maybe from 2006.

The lower part of this tower looks very similar to WFC in Shanghai!

Thankfully the render doesn't show any narrow alleyway next to the building. Former WTC had alleyway which couldn't fit a car between the north tower and Marriott World Trade Center. How narrow was that gap between two buildings though?

Off topic, my bad.

The ring-like assemblage at the base of the spire appear to be communications devices.

If this is the case, the 2008 render is just a conjecture of what could eventually be there, depending on companies renting space on the roof.

Only the elongated thing itself is certain to be built. Eventually, depending on future locators, the things around the base may not even like in the picture.

Just my take on the subject.

Kind of funny how the spike has guide wires. I guess they won't really be visible.

Does anyone know what are those round things attached to the base of the spire? Lights maybe?
