ESTO has unveiled a portfolio of stunning photos documenting the progress of One World Trade Center, the main tower taking shape at the WTC site ("Ground Zero").

Photographer David Sundberg lives in Lower Manhattan and, over the last few years, the view from his apartment has changed dramatically. He's been watching One World Trade Center fill the 9/11 hole in the sky. Originally called The Freedom Tower, the new building, designed by SOM, is a major addition to the skyline of Lower Manhattan.
SOM's crystalline tower, like the Burj Khalifa and other mega-skyscraper projects, takes some inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright's audacious design for the Illinois ("Mile High") building, proposed for Chicago.
