I'm loving that second render of the entire site that was posted up, but I cant help but notice 1WTC looks like its on a lean. could be the illusion created by the 6 sided structure but i think it's a little exaggerated.

I've yet to see a single skyscraper render where something didn't look just a tiny bit off. I'm sure it will look spectacular in reality.

Tower one is rising slowly but surely but what I really like is the memorial moving forward.
Will the pool of the former North Tower finished on the ninth anniversary?
Noticeable is that the colour of the granite is different from the rendering.

OK, is it just me going crazy or are they really just dumping more new concrete on top of the previous layer of concrete -with no reinforcing bars- in the middle of the memorial area to the right of the new concrete with the holes in it? I don't know what it could be for, since they already have 2 reinforced concrete layers below it.

What? It's topped out and they've been putting on the cladding at about one floor a week for the last 3 months.

By GreenwichBoy, WNY, 6-10-10. Scaffolding around the south tower crane jumped. New steel could arrive any day now.

I made a rough photoshop pic showing what the tower should look like when it's on the 36th floor (which is about where it should be on the 9th anniversary)...

It'll really start looking like a Tower. Nice job.
