That's the most ignorant comment I've seen on this thread

This tower will be the 3rd to top out.

You just took the words right out of my mouth. I love the mirror effect, as well as the colour blue.

Maybe he meant that from the trio rising in NYC (1WTC, 4WTC and 157) 4WTC will top out as the last one?

Or he meant 7 WTC, 1 WTC and 3rd 4 WTC. Though I personally believe tower 4 will top out earlier than tower 1.

1WTC just had another jump. It is only 9 meters away from topping out, so I think it will be an awesome race to watch. Both have only their parapet/cooling tower jump left. But he was still wrong, cause both 1WTC and 4WTC will top out earlier than 157

The lobby on the west side has been enclosed and it looks amazing, so clear.

I wonder if it will top off before the cladding reaches the setback.

This building is beautiful, unfortunately the neighboring one liberty plaza is not so much, and needs a repainting very much so.

I can't wait until they clad that ugly mechanical floor. Just curious, will it have the stripy cladding like on the base?

I love the louvers on the mechanical floors. Very reminiscent of the Twins.
