I really hope someday, somehow the spire gets its cladding. The rings/crown lit up at night (or cladded) would also be a nice addition.

The main portion of the tower looks fine though

Yes! Please! Right now it just looks like a stupid antenna which is just a big middle finger to the Sears Tower

The use of a Radome to clad the mast was scrapped because of financial considerations - huge cost overruns!

And with the recent reports of how the P.A. and Durst are losing money on the building and its vacant office spaces, no way!!!!

Wait, so the Tribute In Light isn’t actually where the Twin Towers stood!?

Yes, it's strange. There had to be a way to use a portable setup at the edge of the pools - the actual sites of the Twin Towers.

The "Tribute in Light" is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed six blocks south of the World Trade Center on top of the Battery Parking Garage in New York City to create two vertical columns of light to represent the Twin Towers in remembrance of the September 11 attacks. Wikipedia

Well that’s unfair! If they’re supposed to honor the twins, then they should at least be put in their actual footprints and not a few blocks away
