Had the Port Authority not changed the name of the building, we could have marked this momentous occasion by saying that ground zero construction crews are now "putting a face on Freedom." It would have been so poetic! But instead, we'll just say this: 1 World Trade Center is getting cladded, yo! Over the weekend the first piece of facade, a corner section covering floors 20-24, started going up following a long journey from Minnesota and Oregon. To see what the future tallest tower in North America looks like right now on the inside, check out our recent hardhat tour.
