Sad person? Look at you, 2265 posts.

And even if we all don't like the dark blob on top of the building, it doesn't take away from how great this building is, right? I mean, look at 1 WTC's spire. People hate it, but they still love the building. All I'm saying is that we should overlook this "mistake". Because I don't know if anyone's going to fix it.

Does anyone have construction photos of the building close up? I'm wondering how much of the cladding is left.

I don't really mind the dark blob, yes the same color would have been better, but its not that bad to me.

See? Just a little maturity can save the reputation of a building. Thanks for being a role model, N.Y.C.H.

That's 2265 posts since Sept. 2010. That's an average of about 2 posts a day. Now, by contrast, you've been on here for, let's just round up and call it 60 days. You're averaging more than 8 daily, and some days it seems like you post 50 times (and then posting again to celebrate the 50th or 100th or whatever). Everyone's entitled to express their opinions, but you have to understand that for people who come on here to find news, you're just clogging the feed with pointless posts and, for whatever reason, a lot of outdated renders of the WTC.

Just because you're not breaking any rules doesn't mean you don't have everyone annoyed (you do).

I'm just trying to ask questions about buildings and learn more about the world of architecture. And I promised I won't post something for every 50th post. Just 500th or 100th or something like that. I honestly didn't know that I was annoying other people.

But back on topic.

Quality over quantity. A general principle that can be applied to so many situations...

I believe that what we are looking at on the crown is the backing of the glass because you can see in the picture that the glass is reflecting the suns light except the ones at top.

WTF does post count have to do with anything? Seriously, these endless craps about post counts is nothing more than trolling. Knock it off!

You cannot learn anything trolling the thread f**king hard.
I think 1 2 3, your days are numbered provided you don't keep the shit from the thread, for Desertpunk is in banning mood recently as he already stated before.
And by the way, the way you manage to say "Back on topic" after every off-topic you insert, is even more infuriating!!!

I hope the residents don't need the work elevator for their big ass furniture and stuff. It has to go, I want to see that corner of the tower.

Guys where the heck is this idea that the super dark glass is part of the design coming from? It makes no sense and would look horrible.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7416/9...46a7f38e_b.jpg

Is that lonely panel on the left part of the design?

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2807/9...06d3040e_h.jpg

What about that guy halfway down?

http://imageshack.us/a/img543/669/6lnm.jpg

And it isn't just dark glass it isn't reflective like iamxeddiex said.

http://taniagabrielle.com/wp-content...0.48.19-AM.png

Here you can see the dark glass is only in the crown portion black band and up.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5345/9...9a8954f1_b.jpg

Then there is this weird photo where a whole extra 3 floors appear effected. There will be more dark glass at the top but it will surely match the rest of the dark glass!

I think this is some sort of coating that isn't to be removed until all the mechanicals in the crown are done. Be patient.

This would be a very cool banner for SSC.

I also don't understand why you guys think the top will be left with the black panels. It doesn't look like there is any glass there yet. It just looks like silver frames with a black backing waiting for the glass cladding to me.
