Somebody saw it on the cams when they record it! He guessed they were doing a harlem shake, he was right!

(I am not counting the climbing system because it is just raised, and there is nothing there yet, not even rebar, but if you prefer to count it, then the building would be 14 stories tall or 217 ft. 7 / 66,1 meters)
Yup, I count the climbing form system into the height. Your numbers are otherwise correct but I think you made a slight error.Without the form system the tower indeed is 62 meters or 202 feet tall, however the climbing system isn't 15,5 feet tall, it is 31 feet tall, in other words as 2 normal floors or 1 double floor. Therefore the current height to the top of the climbing floor system is 71 meters or 233 feet. I've also updated my diagram to this number

Btw, that harlem shake just made my day. That's the coolest construction site video of all times

The climbing system is in fact taller than a single floor of the tower, although I am not sure if is as tall a double floor, I'd say it is about one and a half floors.

But whatsoever, the climbing system is not an actual part of the building, it's just a mechanism that helps to build it and will be dismantled when its job is done, that's why I don't think the climbing system itself should be counted, it should be counted either the floor is bellow it, that we are sure is complete, or the floor being built inside it, that could be in different phases of construction.

To put an example, if the core is going to be the entire height of the building (Although I think it is not the case here, since, I think, the core will end about two stories down the top) If you count the climbing system, when it gets to the last floor you must add an aditional floor to the height, but when it is dismantled, discount it.

Look forward and love these updates, how come WTC2 isn't listed,(guessing because it's (o/h), but it's above ground right, 3's there, isn't that (O/H). Then maybe (on another forum) ST occasionally, just to see the dead heat between WTC1 and ST. Maybe not post it here, I wouldn't want to see ppl pissed off, because I asked for the favor.. I'm just love seeing those two battle round for round like a 15 rounder heavy weight fight, going back and forth.

Well, my measurements of the form core through the 57 and Park cams indicate that the climbing system is indeed 31 feet tall, however I can't say for certain that there is no distortion in that view

As to the climbing system being counted, we don't know whether the concrete behind those form systems is already poured or not. I decided to count it because it will directly be replaced by concrete. I do agree that once the core reaches its top point they shouldn't be counted anymore, though I can imagine the system will be dissasembled asap so that it can serve on another building

As to me not including 2WTC in my diagram, well it is on hold and will remain like that for a very long time. 3WTC at least could start rising soon once they get an anchor and is still under construction, even though it's not rising anymore for now

Btw, I will make a Shanghai Tower diagram for you later today bigreach. Since 1WTC has only one lifting of the antenna left I will compare ST to all the current tallest towers

Me at night
And then the next morning

Indeed, it will reach that for sure after the mixed floors.

Looks like we will reach our first set of open-air terraces before it eclipses the Franklin National Bank Building. Should be coming up in only a few floors actually.

Good luck with that I was out of the US all last week and it was killing me not to check in on SSC. I kept trying to find wifi all week but all I found was a bitchy wife that kept reminding me about the international roaming charges I would incur should I find some good 3G
