New renderings have been released of One World Trade Center - the first updated images released in more than five years - showing what will be the centerpiece of the rebuilt Ground Zero site.

The images aren't strikingly different from the last crop released in 2006, but they do showcase some of the subtle changes that building owners the Port Authority and real estate developer the Durst Organization, have made to the design.

The tower, scheduled to be completed in 2014, edged out the Empire State Building as the tallest building in New York City in April, eclipsing 1,271 feet.

The most prominent change to the tower's design has been the decision to ditch the ornamental white fiberglass panels surrounding the 408-foot antenna protruding from the tower's roof.

The images also highlight the revamped base now set to be covered in hundreds of 13-foot, vertical glass fins.
