Well, I guess we truly don't need to overreact if this is what might happen,but I doubt it. Durst has been responsible for making antenatal spires which look like this.

Hopefully they will have a bit of realization of what they are dealing with. As for the frateral twin concept, 2 WTC is the likely contender for 1 WTC, if it stays the same height.

They wouldn't necessarily have to add floors. Im saying just put up a steel and glass pyramind shell that encloses of the communications ring to increase the roof height. Heck, the could evern build the spire right through it. It would be more of a comsmetic/ aesthetic thing.

Obelisks have been structures that symbolize of power throughout histroy (i.e. Ancient Egypt, Greece). I think that idea suites this building well.

Once again, why are we saying it's not going to be an official 1,776 feet? They said it's still going to be a spire, just not as thick.

^^ The PA better check with CTBUH about the height measurement, if they don't want to suffer a surprise. The Council has strict regulations: spires count, antennas don't.

@NYC GUY: that link is a goldmine. I recommend everyone to check it out, the ring looks huuuge!!

I am glad I went to the World Trade Center yesterday. Too bad I couldn't get more pictures since my camera ran out of power, and it started to rain in Manhattan. I will get more pictures next time. I also wanted to upload them yesterday but I didn't get a chance to.

Again stop speculating on the mast. We will know when they tell us. Until then lets talk about the construction again.

Will this antenna do an actual job of picking up transmissions?

Yes. Antennas receive and send out signals.

Alright people can we please talk about the construction. I am tired of people talking about the mast. We will know when it happens. Until then I am going to use my old post to get things back on track.

No. The official height will be 1,373' due to the lower elevation of the north entrance (El. 307'-10") which is 3'4" below the main lobby floor (El. 311'-2")

Base Cladding

So has there been delivery to the site of the base glass?
How will the glass stick to the concrete?

Steel was being delivered so I am assuming that will be going up.
