you can see the most upper of the 4 crystal shaped tower parts is only two thirds filled with floors above it is an empty crown. that is considered the spire or crown or however you like to call it.

It's not a spire but it's the tri -pod shaped antenna of the diamond crest at 12 o'clock.

just such a shame that a large open gap remains as long as 2WTC and 3WTC are on hold.

And that is why 5WTC will look the best (When a newly designed render for it comes out in the next 5 - 10 years)

I just hope they will rather keep the lot empty for a decade or two and then build there a truly tall tower. One taller than 1WTC

The forum rules put on hold buildings into the proposed section. Only buildings under construction are allowed into the main section

There is a large mobile crane (red) unloading some HVAC stuff, including what appear to be large blowers that are being attached to the silver ducts. Maybe they will finish all this soon and tidy up a bit.
