    No idea how immense it would be til you see it in scale against something else. They look a lot smaller on top of a building. Wow.

    Just a few Questions:
    I see that the tarp is beginning to come down on some sides of the base: When will we see the first pieces of base class go up and why hasn't the base been squared off yet?

    Secondly, so the antenna will be installed looking as it is? Bare steel? When should we see the first sections go up?

    Thanks.

    The portion of the roof slab that supports the antenna should be poured on 12-11. It needs to make strength before the first section goes up. Should see a few pieces up by Christmas....maybe.

    They are unloading smaller antenna sections, staging them upright next to WTC1 northeast corner.

    I believe the base section is 14' diameter by 30' tall.

    Spire to Top One World Trade Center Arrives in NYC

    The crowning spire of the World Trade Center's tallest building has arrived in New York City.

    A barge was brought across New York Harbor from New Jersey's Port Newark on Tuesday.

    It held nine pieces of the steel spire that will top One World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.

    Meanwhile, workers on the 104-story skyscraper were busy pouring concrete that will hold the 408-foot spire.

    The trade center's director of construction, Steven Plate, says the spire marks a post 9/11 milestone that signifies New York City is "better than ever."

    The pieces each weigh 70 tons.

    The spire is expected to rise into the Manhattan sky by spring.

    Plate says the 1,776-foot high-rise — symbolizing America's freedom — will be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
