The base isn't anti-bomb, it's a covering over the electrical substation that occupies the first 10 floors.

I actually got to go inside the new 7 WTC for a hearing on Thursday, though I had no clue how to use that new elevator control but I wasn't alone on that.

Um No, its made to be somewhat stronger then the other towers so in case of attacks it can resist anything....

You're wrong. It's a substation. They built it stronger because transformers are gigantic and they had to build the tower over them. Essentially the office portion is cantilevered over the station.

That's right. That substation is set to power the entire Downtown.
