One World Trade Center Progress

Every day I look at One World Trade and think, ‘Damnit. They are not making any progress!’ Here is what it looked like from my window five months ago in December.

Here is how it looked just minutes ago. So okay, making progress. But I’m confused. I’m posting an update because I’d read the other day that it’s now the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere (not that I care about that aspect of it).

Except today I read that due to the weather they had to postpone adding the spire which would make it the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. The reason I’m confused is if you scroll down again and look closer, there already is a spire on top.

See it? Is that just a placeholder spire? Maybe they’re going to put a spire on top of the spire?
