QUESTION - how does the WTC1 compare to WTC7 in terms of construction speed?

7 took four years to build. Might have taking longer if it was taller. Tower 7 is everything tower 1 will be.

Well the picture you commented on that was posted by( Jwalas) is a picture from a week plus ago, and second when we say 3 floors or what ever the number left to a mile stone mark for the tower, we mean the next floor or floors after the one that they are constructing now, ( for Example).

As for your second question compareing towers 1 and 7 in construction speed, I think (Kingsc) answered it quite well.

It's a interesting design. But is in completely the wrong place. It belongs in midtown imo.

roof

I am estimating that it will taken another 5 or 6 crane jumps for the roof to form a near-perfect octogon. What do you guys think? And for those of you that don't lke the cladding: considering the building subsists in a city whose number of adjacent buildings approach most countries' total number of buildings, I'm willing to sacrifice a little reflection.

If it was in Midtown it'd be lost in the mass of skyscrapers. I think it's perfect where it is. It's also a herald of the revitalization of Lower Manhattan, which will be culminated by the completion of the WTC.

He is the perfect place. And very cool seeing him looking through Chinatown. It is a modern and bold design, will combine with the very complex background to the WTC.

Quizás el único usuario activo aquí que te entiende soy yo. Tratandose de una torre en Estados Unidos, y de un foro internacional, te sugiero que escribas en ingles
