Amen! Let's be proud of FiDi again.
The lit base looks nicer than I had initially expected, actually. I'd have preferred something a bit more transparent than a bunker, of course, but I suppose they've done a good job decorating it nonetheless.
I hold the unpopular opinion of preferring the squared base over the tapered one; although the latter befits the building's aesthetic in a vacuum, the former allows the complex to appear more cohesive and consistent from the ground level. I think we should keep in mind that this is the World Trade Center, and not merely the tallest element thereof.
