Please, don't start speculating. A revision can mean many things. Tower 2 is quite an isolate superstructure compared to the rest of the projects on site, I find it more plausible that the revision has to do with a rearrangement of the MEP systems, particularly with those related with hub. I honestly don't know.

I seriously doubt anything major was done to the overall look of the tower, if anything at all besides what Otie stated. This tower is the real crown jewel of all four towers, Silverstein knows that.

Besides, I said that because in previous renderings the glass on the crown was seamless; no louvers spotted.

lol renderings. They never depict everything. They just give us a mostly-accurate idea of what to expect.

The sad part is they trademarked that phrase. Like it was good, or something.

They didn't draw 2 WTC that well, but to be fair, it hasn't even risen yet.

I jut thought it was interesting that they decided to include it at all. Clearly somebody at the responsible advertising firm is a skyscraper geek...

I haven't checked this thread in forever, reminds me how beautiful 2 WTC is! Good thing 3 WTC is starting, hopefully that speeds up the process with this one too. I hope...

That sounds so ridiculous to be honest. No money/demand/tenants in Mew York, one of the most major and significant cities in the world? What?
But yeah, it's reality. And reality is frequently quite tough though.

Let me quote the pic from 3 WTC because you can see 2 WTC all alone in the corner:
