Nice shot!

I like this tower.


#1269

Looks lovely :slight_smile: It’s a shame though about the spires. You can clearly see where they should have been.


#1270

this building has been neutered beyond reproach .


#1271

For sure. It is still a nice tower, and it is quite imposing in person but they definitely butchered the hell out of it. I didn’t mind the removal of the X bracing but the spires and height reduction were unnecessary.


#1272

I agree with you. I still like this design, because it matches Four World Trade Center. But I did like the old design.


#1273

It’s Sad!

These toothpics were beyond ridiculous and obviously out of place.


#1275

It’s a shame because I feel many of the projects we watch on this forum have undergone some sort of height reduction or redesign to make them less unique.

I think 45 Park Place is a good example of this. I much preferred the original tri-tower design. That’s just my opinion though.


#1276

According to you. I beg to differ but thanks for your input.


#1277

All cost cutting I assume and ironically this is the first building to be fully leased.


#1278

Glass is all done behind the bracing on the southwest corner. Looks like the facade of the parapet is about 40% complete on the western side.

This thing looks tiny next to 1WTC.


#1281

optical illusion…


#1282

While everybody’s talking about the glass reaching the top, I’ve been wondering: When will the lobby glass be complete? And also the area around the tower?


#1283

Believe it or not they’ve made good progress with the lobby. From what I have seen in person then lobby is fully enclosed besides where the revolving doors will be which they have boarded off. If you look at one of my posts from last month I posted a picture where you can also see marble installed in the lobby. Same kind as in 4 WTC.


#1284

Made a rendering!

Great job! You did it a hell of a lot better than I did. I made that at like 1 in the morning so yeah :stuck_out_tongue:
