Is there another building in the world that looks as good on a clear sunny day?

Closest thing that comes to mind is the John Hancock Tower in Boston. Another beauty.

Has there been anymore progress on the elevator side? Can anyone take/find some pics to see if they've been filling in more floors?

Seriously. The finished quality of the facade is stunning.




My first thought when seeing this picture was "holy shit, the world's first building with a cloaking device!"

Tom Ford, Tiffany, Armani likely to take WTC street retail: sources

"High-fashion designers Tom Ford and Giorgio Armani and luxury jeweler Tiffany & Company appear set to occupy three of the coveted street-level stores in the under-construction World Trade Center shopping complex, multiple retail sources told The Real Deal..."

"...Tom Ford is expected to take a corner in the base of 4 World Trade Center, while Armani and Tiffany will likely take space in 3 World Trade Center next door, sources said. Each store would have entrances on Church Street, between Liberty and Fulton streets..."
