The towers look better in real than in that render.

Beautiful Earthcam shot from this morning. Love the deep blue, and for a change it's not a giant mirror during the daytime.

The best way to denote a glass skyscraper is to take shots on a cloudless day. I first thought the screengrab was a photoshoped/CGI image!

Amazing renders! It'll look even better in real life.

Vertigo-Inducing Photo Taken From 4 World Trade Center This Morning
This morning Redditor Talwin posted a photo that made our feet sweat, showing 1WTC (with the complete spire in place) from 4 World Trade Center. We contacted the poster who took the vertigo-inducing photo, and he's an ornamental iron worker for Local Union 580, "part of the crew hanging glass on Tower 4." So it's probably good he isn't afraid of heights—he told us, "I don't get vertigo... I'm abnormally comfortable with heights. I'm always in a harness though, so that's kind of cheating.

I don't know if my eyes are tricking me but if you look at the cam facing the vehicle security center and 4WTC it looks like they paved that part of the street infront of T4?!

It's...finally done. Just the one strip left and the 2-3 missing panels and that's it.

What a great moment for this underrated building.

It's pretty funny to read through the first 5-10 pages and see all the negative comments.
