Actually, if you look at the bottom it seems like the bracing is being placed in front of the glass.

They could paint the bracing glowing pink and put a golden crown on the tower to make it exciting and super classy

I thought it was going to turn out kinda boring but I'm actually happy with how it's looking... better than i thought it would with the cross bracing and spires being removed.

4 WTC's true color is... whatever its surroundings are. It reflects pretty well; its most notable feature in my opinion. I do like 3's cladding though. The stainless steel adds some nice vertical lines/perceived height.

Oh I know it's in front. I just don't think it's very noticeable. The glass is so reflective that I don't think you'll see the bracing at all. They really neutered the design. But hey, beats a hole in the ground.

Is the reclad of the verizon building already finished? If so, it's ugly as hell, although still better than the older one imo.

Can't believe we're almost to the point of zero cranes at the WTC site.

Until they re-appear for 2WTC. But the cranes have been here for years indeed.

In the meantime, there will be the cranes for the Performing Arts Center for several years. A number of mobile cranes are there now.

This is a beautiful building. I would like to see different colors of cladding(possibly red,*blue, green, etc) on buildings within that area some time in the future.
