Does anybody know if they plan on putting glass on the whole thing?

On sunny days, it is that nice. The pollution is barely visible most days unless it is insanely hot out. Fog and rain have a far greater effect.

Air pollution is still very much visible, depending on where, when and how you're looking. From a distance, i.e. in a plane or helicopter, on a clear day from up the Hudson Valley, you can see the entire area is bathed in an orange sulfur dioxide haze.

I agree, while air pollution can probably always be reduced, visibility is good on most days (not on the very hottest days, as already mentioned). From my job on the 14th floor on 168th st, I can clearly see details on 1WTC on most days (that's about 11 or 12 miles, I believe).. and visibility continues beyond that too.

I'm very picky about when I shoot. The weather I can't control (the forecasts is often wrong) but I aim for low humidity clear days in the summer and right after storms in the winter. The angle/position of the sunlight is timed in advance. Nikon lenses are also great.

Hey guys.
Is there any official source that confirm the 273 Meters stated in this thread or is the final height still not known?

I mean in this thread we have 273m(895ft)

The below NYyimby link tells something about possible 905ft

http://newyorkyimby.com/2015/07/cons...enderings.html

At the skyscrapercenter they have 267.7 m / 878 ft

Emporis even has 310 Meters in itīs database.


Can anyone help me out about the real height (with credible source please) ?

I believe this thread is the correct height.

Great. Looking forward to see it's larger 'brother' gain some height. They really complement each other.
