Yeah, does anyone have some update pics on the podium cladding? How is that going? It's not readilly visible in any of the webcam shots.

The cladding is so elegant. I can't remember ever seeing cladding of as high quality as we see on 1WTC and 4WTC

I've seen less wavy cladding on other buildings, but this is indeed high quality. I like 4's better, but I think the cladding for 2 will look the best with the fins.

WTC4's glass is better than WTC1's, isn't it? Or they are the same?

I like 4WTC's cladding more because the floor slabs aren't visible in it, but 1WTC has superb cladding too

We need more shots from in between 4WTC and 1LP looking upwards. This tower will look the best when the holes in the side are covered up and the base is finally cladded.

Yeah that seems like a record for a World Trade Center thread! (Other than 2 and 3)

There will be more posts when the base cladding starts and when the glass reaches the roof.
