It's both. 1WTC is an official name, FT is what people know it as. There's nothing wrong if people want to call it FT. It doesn't change the fact that it's 1WTC.

Of course it's called One World Trade Center. It will also be named "Freedom Tower" by the people in general if they decide to use it. It's exactly the same thing with the Twin Towers, they weren't called like that, they were One and Two World Trade Center. Please finish this discussion.

To the rest of the world it will be One World Trade Center, to be politically correct. To Americans it will always be Freedom Tower as a symbol of our resolve after 9/11, to heck with being PC!

Lolz How is not calling it FT being PC? If anyone has a a rage-fit over it being called FT, they are likely to have a mental problem. Right now it kinda looks like Gay Pride Tower.

In some photos on a previous page, I noticed a stairway attached to the outside of the tower, but it only goes down partway. Are the permanent stairways already completed below that point?

That was built and used before they built big construction elevators on the east and west side..I guess they use those stairs now too, but they don't need them from bottom to the top because they have elevators..

well if you guys want to talk about correctness in names... imagine how many people are still going to be calling the place "ground zero". i'm sure that long after 1wtc is complete, a few people will still be referring to the trade center/memorial by its no longer relevant and kind of inappropriate nickname.
