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.

Just a small question:
because I've never seen this tower in real life, I would like to know how the glass panels on the cubic base work:

Do they move all the time? Do they move only during particular events? (for example, Christmas, New Year,...)

Have you ever seen them moving?

I think these moving panels are really a good idea. It makes the tower become alive

The base vents do not move, they are in their final position.

Yes they will. This will include the podium and top mechanical floors.

This building has definitely grown on me but I still can't wait for it to be eclipsed by other giants in the near future

I have a good feeling that One World Trade Center will open in time for my graduation trip to New York City!

Same, it has its moments. I'm really excited for 3 WTC to start rising to accent 1wtc and strengthen the downtown skyline even more.

Ehhh ?
I thought those were moving panels...

I am quite sure their position moved as I always follow the recent posts, and the recent photos of the base.
