    Anxious to see this "glassed out". The vertical lines at the mechanical floors will only help add to the sense of height and slenderize the look.

    'industrial' = 'phallic'?

    Indeed. I wasn't a fan of the vents in the renders, but they look great on the actual product.

    One thing I noticed about this tower is that it looks taller and more slender in pics and renderings than it does in person.

    I find it looks much more impressive from a distance. In and around downtown the building looks quite squat (being unfinished an obvious hindrance). When I look over from 280 in Jersey each morning you get a much better sense of the height.

    Agreed. The thing is massive from my workplace (the Intrepid). It dwarfs everything nearby. I can't wait to see it finished and lit up.

    Spire getting up there

    Spire sections 301-303 weighing a jaw-dropping 178.5 tons are now in place atop One WTC.
