I think it's just a giant lobby and an assortment of perhaps offices for the building upkeep and management?

It's a blastproof bunker, so that if someone detonates a truck bomb outside of it (ala 1993), the building will be safe. Inside, the first couple floors are a giant lobby, and the remainder of the base is composed of mechanical floors.

damn, i'm a bit late for the party... but nevertheless: yes, it's finally getting some glass (which looks pretty cool btw)!

EDIT: man, somehow it sounds crazy... imagine a friend asking you: hey, why you look so happy today? me: well, didn't you hear the good news? the first glass panels on 1WTC have been installed!!! just read the f******* newspapers ... i mean the internet i've never been so happy in my life...
