looking at the pic in post 20161, the building doesn't appear to taper skinnier as it grows. in all of the renders on SSP it seems to. does anyone know how it will end up? personally, i think it looks better on the render

No, no te preocupes por usar el espanol aqui. En Nueva York muchos hablan espanol - aun gringos como yo.

Pero porque dice que es una proyecto "simple"? No entiendo. Este no me parece ser nada "simple". Si vengas a ver todo el sitio de construcion te daras cuenta de eso.

Yeah and I can talk Dutch here, because NYC was founded as New Amsterdam by the Dutch

But I think this project isn't simple at all as well, the total height of 1, 2, 3, and 4WTC together is 1628,1 metres (5341,54 feet), approximately a mile! And then I don't even add 7WTC and the possible 5WTC. Together with the memorial, the transportiation hub and the memorial this will be mindblowing!

I've noticed that very same thing but it seems to me that it will clearly have smaller floors higher up because every single floor has a little more cut off of the corners as it grows taller until the point that those long triangular shaped cutaways will finally form a square at the very top of the roof. So I'm thinking that it would depend on the angle you're taking the photo from as far as the tapering is concerned. If you were taking a photo in the direction of any of the four corners I think it would looked tapered because you would see the sloping cutaways on every floor that gets smaller towards the top. However, if you were facing the exact center of the building with your camera from any of the four sides it would not appear to taper because all four of the those walls are perfectly verticle.

El nos dejo 10 mandamientos, que NADIE cumple.
De los diez mandamientos la gran mayoria no cumple ni uno. Entonces como podriamos reclamarle el sufrimiento del mundo?

"Yeah and I can talk Dutch here, because NYC was founded as New Amsterdam by the Dutch "

Being founded by the Dutch has nothing to do with anything - Dutch is not commonly spoken in NY. Spanish is, second only to english.

Regarding the building appearing not to taper that much I have noticed that for some time too. But it is clear that is an illusion given by the netting. The netting often bulges out from the building where the taper is thereby hiding it. Eliminate the netting and it would be very clear. If you look close you can notice that in many of the pictures.

Pardon my ignorance, but does anybody know how heavy each glass panel is that is being installed at Tower 1 World Trade Center? Thank you

It was ment sarcastic

And it doesn't seem to taper much when you see this, as the current height:

And note that the building is just at like two fifth if you leave out the base, so I think we'll just have to wait.

That's because of the angle at which this view is from. If you look at my explanation a few posts above I'm positive I've answered the question correctly. Look at it from any corner and it will appear tapered at the maximum angle. Look at it from the exact center of any of the four sides and it will not appear to taper at all.

To me when I go to the site the taper is quite noticable behind the netting. In a two dimensional diagram here it may not seem like a lot but when you see it in person it is quite noticable, just as the bulge out from the ground level to the top of the 200 foot base is also noticable.

Hello, does anybody know how tall the base of the original WTC was, compared to the new 1 WTC?
