The black netting reminds me too much of the Deutsche Bank Building. I wish they had a silver/blueish color to look like the glass.

...very nice shots. Exactly where is the "cross" located now, and is that spot permanent? You would think they would have made it a part of the Memorial.

Dude...Elevator doors...Those are elevator doors..

First of all..
They wont cladd 9 floors and no one would notice...
Second..
They wont cladd vertical..They will cladd floor (or two) per floor (or two)..
Third..
Base cladding is diferent from office cladding, so there's no way they'll put it on the base and office at the same time...
Forth..
They didn't even placed hangers for cladding yet..So the can't put glass up yet..

I can go on and on...

After a little bit of math and calculating all floor heights and elevations, I have some true numbers..

So..

1WTC tower is right now 138,176m or 453' 4'' tall..

That makes it 281st tallest building in New York right behind the Trump International Hotel & Tower which is 138,4 m tall...
