I noticed in this rendering of the mast, that some of the top sections have a more aesthetically-pleasing white covering over them. It is somewhat reminiscent of the North Tower's antenna. Are they actually gonna implement that? If so, that will be a very good thing!

Umm, that is broadcast equipment. That will be added and pointed in the directions that the broadcasters desire. The watchmacallits were never an architectural element like some people seem to believe.

umm thanks yeah so is the mast fyi.

i was just noticing they were present in the older render, but not in the newer. its as much of a minor mystery as the white sections of the mast. maybe someone who knows something about it can explain.

Glad you like it

So correct me if i'm wrong,, 1 more "single spire" piece, then the finale the "double with the rocket beacon? Correct? So that erected was piece 314? next will be 315, which is laying on roof, then the double, longer rocket/slash long spire piece already connected, that's still on street. Is that accurate. Oh by the way sweet close ups Hunser!!! Current height is actually 1 foot less than Taipei 101? Incredible..

Great work NYCrulz, you're becoming a top seed around here, I just wanna ask you why do they apply this spire in such an unorthodox way, seemed like 314 was laying on the roof a week or 2 ago, they pull up 315,(lay that on the roof?) from street (I beleive),, did they lay that piece #315, down on the roof, and assemble 314, or was that the last and final normal part, before the double, or was today's the last section, and they added that right away, and if that's, the last piece before the double piece, or maybe they constructed 315 and maybe 314 is still on the roof to me,, I'm dumbfounded, I thought there was another single piece to have set,, is it possibe they lifted (THE FINAL) #315 2 weeks ago, set it down on the roof. Then constructed spire # 314 today and applied it?? Anybody have any explanations.. I'm quite confused because I though there were "now" 3 pieces left, 1 normal size, then the double top-off? Help needed.. Sorry so confusing, bottom line is there 1 more than the double? Equalling 3 more pieces, we all know the top and it's under piece are connected, so I'm calling it double.

Can someone tell me why a few of the window panes on 1WTC and 4WTC are completely transparent and not tinted blue like the others?

It has no color. It's only reflecting the color of the sky.

There is still one more single piece before the double section. I'm not sure if they have hoisted it to the roof yet or not. I would probably say since it's such a large piece that it is probably still on the ground.
