I think it's a disgrace that they've allowed the building to fester in the dirt like this. You can still see where the construction elevator was 3 year after it was removed! It's ridiculous. The most prominent glass tower in NYC and it never gets washed. I actually reached out to the Port Authority about it and they pointed me to Durst and Silverstein orgs who never responded...

That was what I said a decade ago. This design actually made sense, now it is reality.

the CNBC news channel on 9/1/16 showed a new 1 hour show
about rebuilding the area Ground Zero Rising/Freedom
BUT the glass on ONE World Trade looks very bad
almost like they were doing it on purpose to show the glass.

Well, for what it's worth, its only when you're up close to the building that you really notice the need for cleaning. Otherwise it looks great from pretty much every skyline angle; particularly looking from JC at sunset.

1 World Trade Center Gains Popularity in the Pantheon of New York Kitsch

By DAVID W. DUNLAP and TODD HEISLER
SEPTEMBER 7, 2016


Quote:
You glance toward Lower Manhattan and expect to see a single tower where two once stood. You delight in the spectacle of sunlight glinting off its slivered facade.

Suddenly, you realize, the new 1 World Trade Center — the Freedom Tower — has become familiar.

And 15 years after the twin towers disappeared abruptly from the skyline, they have begun to fade from popular consciousness.

They once nearly rivaled the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building as simple, graphic representations of the complex idea of New York. In movies and logotypes, on knickknacks and letterheads, two parallel strokes meant only one thing. Now, a shaft of slender, alternating isosceles triangles — so simple a child could draw it — is coming to mean the same thing.

Campagna & Sons of Brooklyn, which makes boxes for pizzerias around Lower Manhattan and nearby New Jersey cities like Hoboken and Weehawken, carries a Freedom Tower design, in 10-, 12-, 14-, 16- and 18-inch sizes. Instagram currently counts nearly 200,000 posts tagged #oneworldtradecenter. Fishs Eddy, an imaginative housewares store in the Flatiron neighborhood of Manhattan, has introduced the new 1 World Trade Center to its popular “212” line.

But dinner plates and other “212” merchandise designed before Sept. 11, 2001, will still have the twin towers in the silhouetted skyline, Julie Gaines, an owner, said......

Square Footage

Hello!

I have a quick question.

When comparing the original One World Trade Center Twin Tower, with the New One WTC.. Would it be an accurate statement to say that the original One WTC had more square footage?

Yes, that is accurate. Each of the Twin Towers had ~4 million square feet of space while the new Tower 1 has ~3.5 million.

Renderings revealed for Gensler’s communal sky lobby at One World Trade Center

Quote:
Tenants at One World Trade Center who occupy floors above 65 are required to change elevators at the 64th floor. When the building opened its doors two summers ago, the Durst Organization noticed that these elevator banks became a natural mingling area, and so decided to forego plans to make the space into offices and instead keep it open as an open sky lobby.

Commercial Observer got a first look at renderings of the commons designed by Gensler, whose principal and design director Tom Vecchione referred to it as “a shared piazza for the entire building.” In addition to a cafe, it will offer a game room and a 180-person meeting room that can be split into two or host fitness and yoga classes.

The 25,000-square-foot space differs from the Observatory in that it will be open only to building tenants and their guests. An additional 5,000 square feet on the floor is dedicated to the elevators and a reception area for a large-scale tenant above. Between the buildout and supporting infrastructure, the project is expected to cost $14 million. It’s scheduled for completion at the beginning of next year, and Durst is currently looking for a third-party operator to manage the facility on a day-to-day basis.

So I've seen the window washers clean what seems like the whole tower - is the glass just dirty or is it actually a different color/opacity?

You've seen them cleaning? I haven't. Last I looked you could still clearly see where the connstruction elevator was on the East façade.

I've always been interested in open galleries and stairwells between floors within high rise towers like this. The original WTC had quite a few of these types of cut-aways. I remember the one in the Fiduciary Trust offices between 96 and 97 in Tower 2.
