really nice to see those construction photos
nice to see the balance between the constructing parts and the already cladded parts, with the glass reflection

Indeed. The higher it gets, the smaller the office space. Can't wait when they reach the 72th floor, perfect octagon.

It has to do with how it was manufactured. The glass itself is very close to that used in 7 WTC, but the installation is different. That being said, 7 WTC looks amazing in person, but pictures tend to amplify any defects or wavyness. The same is happening with 1 WTC. The more glass that goes up the better it looks, I think.
