This tower looks like SWFC without the gap if it didn't have the spire and it looks like SWFC with a spire if it had one

Why is some rebar colored green? Is it something different than regular rebar ?

The green rebar is a epoxy coated. It's normally used in bridges and roadways or moisture is a problem and would corrode normal rebar. It's being used in some of the underground portions of this building for this same reason. There are some of the areas that will be used for water storage or have high humidities. It's considerably more expensive than normal rebar.

That is the reason, it is taking so long to build. It took the twin towers quite a few years too. I hope that is a proper answer, to all of the complaints of the naysayers.

The last time that what looked like steel beams were offloaded from semis, it just turned out to be sections of temporary stairs and platforms to be placed inside the core for workers. Those looked exactly like steel columns on the webcam too. Don't get your hopes up. They might be, might not be.

Not necessarily. Many are landmarked.

As to the semis. Judging from the pictures at wirednewyork, they look like steel beams.

if you look at cranes movement for about 2 hours, they both "following each other" I know those steel beams require "two" crane operation. . That what tipped me off but maybe I'm wrong

The only building surrounding the site that will be demolished is 130 Liberty and it is already half way demolished.

In the renders the mast looks very streamlined.....When you look at the original mast or the ESB mast you see lots of stuff stuck all over it, arials, dishes etc. Wonder what it will really look like ? Because it looks quite thick lower down and if made of kevlar, transmission equipment may be hidden inside as earlier posts state. Or maybe they think you wont notice that from street level ?

the spire on 1WTC is purely for decoration at this point, so you won't see any of that crap on there. there was originally going to be a communications system inside of and at the base of the spire, but it's more or less be scrapped. in the end, the tower will look the same as the rendering.
