The world trade center should be tall, but not as tall as the burj khalifa or 432 park avenue. I think this height is fine.

Also, more glass deliveries at earthcam.

^No,the glass for the building is already up there,but if you meant for the base,that's also a no.The base will have thin glass-fins shaped like a "V".

You cannot however see the building by being at the memorial...here is an aerial view, the memorial is the circular object like user BillGates pointed out and the DayTop Village Inc. has a parking lot with a great view. There's a wooden pole by the woods next to the Daytop building that I use as my "Marker" to line up the memorial with One WTC.

drag the map slightly to the left to see the Daytop HQ

Parapet glass? I doubt that. The Parapet isn't even complete yet.

So is there some reason they have stopped steel yet again? The weather has been perfect to get this done and like nothing has been happening.

You know the song 'We are young'. The part where they say 'Higher then the empire state' I keep on saying "One world trade center is higher " And I replace the 'Empire State' with 'One World Trade' Lol

Here's my question: why do we keep asking these questions?

The 1776 number was never the final height, the top of the beacon would have marked that elevation, but a lightning rod is going to sit just above it. Besides, the Council uses the lowest open-air pedestrian entrance as the starting point, not the main finished ground floor (which has been used by the architects the whole time), meaning that you have to add the height of the liightning rod plus the difference between the lowest entrance and main ground floor.

caution spoiler:
Its just dawn on me the symbolic meaning in witch the last scene of the dark knight rises when you see 1 wtc in the back ground, meaning just as Bruce Wayne rose out of no hope and disparity and uncertainty, so will american.
