3 World Trade Center version 3 Curtain wall detail
3WTC 2.0 vs 3.0. Not confirmed, but it appears it's now about ~80 feet shorter after the removal of several mechanical floors.
corner brace detail
Will the exoskeleton / diagonal bracing be exposed & treated steel (like the Renzo Piano NY Times building) or will it have cladding over structural steel?
Good observation & great pics, STR!!
Man, do I love this building. Hopefully this hottie gets tower 7 glass, and not tower 2 glass.
Huh? Tower 2 will have glass largely similar to 1 & 7, as will 3. Only Tower 4 has the special glass.
A few more.
The setbacks/balconies. Best outdoor spot in the city.
Also, why would RRS have their people go out of their way to modify things?
It's the lack of tapering that bothers me most.
The previous design of 3 WTC looked like some fantastic piece of modern machinery.
The new version looks more like a reject from some 30 year old Frigidaire.
