The mechanical floors will not be open for residents. They are decorative and practical, which shows an example of good architecture.

Mentioning the terms "spire", "radome" or "antenna" in any thread will warrant a painfully long argument on the WTC 1 spire.

But keep it in the WTC 1 thread please, not here.

They briefly had the 53rd St camera zoomed out a bit yesterday, showing the tops of the Solow (689 ft) and GM (705 ft) buildings:




The Four Seasons is 682 ft tall. I think its crown would look good with copper cladding.

If you think ESB is massive compared to this, just compare this to One WTC

A bit off topic, but it must be interesting to watch the construction for the workers in the Franklin Bank Building:

No, 42 for NYC sounds right. He may have meant 115th or something like that for the US figure.

Wait, what? Your telling me that there are 41 other buildings in NYC that are over 1398ft, or taller then 432 Park? I must have missed something.
