A View From on High: The First Spire Section

Check the view

This spectacular photo is shared by John Lyons of the Durst Organization. It shows the first spire section going in at the new One World Trade Center on Wednesday of this week in lower Manhattan.

As many RW readers know, Lyons is assistant VP and director of broadcast communications for Durst, which operates the communications facilities atop 4 Times Square and other buildings, and will do so here. Click on the pic to see it larger.

Durst plans an installation to support FM radio and television antennas in the 408-foot spire, which will ultimately bring the building’s height to 1,776 feet, making it the tallest building in North America. And that means Lyons (who also is a past recipient of the Radio World Excellence in Engineering Award) is likely to be an even busier fella soon … and the New York broadcast skyline is about to have a new look.
