WTC is only about 4-5 towers, but the MIBC has, and still can have more towers, don't forget that that the MIBC is a zone which can be expanded at any moment to get more towers, while the WTC is just a memorial which wont be expanded.

WTC has 3 towers now, MIBC has 8 over 200m. That's not fair.

Both are great little clusters that get a bit long to get finished, I think, we can all agree on that.

I'm not to sure what towers are in the WTC district
but are they?
1 World trade center
Two World Trade Center
Bank of America
3 World trade center
One 57
Four World trade center

Here their average height
324 m

and the MIBC
is 294 m

I always go which one is taller

Only WTC towers are in the WTC not BOA and One57, these are in Midtown. And you forgot 7 WTC.

It's really hard to choose between the two clusters. The MIBC is larger and more diverse, but the WTC fits its surroundigs more and also 2WTC's design is just astonishing.

Equals 6,003 feet,divide by 5 and convert to m which is 366 m.

And if you don't count spire/antenna of 1WTC=average height is now 343 m.

Ok, then I think it's fair to say we get to include the spires of Moscow's buildings too.

So now their average height is 311 m
