Uh, okay, maybe it's the building base THEY put on their WEBSITE where a clever Curbed tipster, and a clever poster to the Wired New York Forum, found it revealed in a video tour of the new Freedom Tower. Writes our tipster, Theodore Grunewald, "Not exactly leaked, nor a paranoid public-relations conspiracy; but nonetheless, views of the project that are not seen by the general public at all, unless assiduously ferreted out by us, the most dedicated of architecture geeks." After the jump, two more views.
