Spires are stupid. The true height should only be roof height. New York, for instance, has many buildings at about 800 feet but because of the spire fraud they're over 1,000 feet.

If you actually care about that, start seeing a therapist.

In the low floors of 1WTC that grey stuff is preparation for the cladding? And first of all what's that stuff (the purpose for that)?

This is where they brush fireproofing layer down from the steel...They will bolt hangers for the cladding on in..They can't bolt it on the layer, that's why they have to brush it down first..

Not really. Tower 2 is being constructed where the tower cranes have begun work beneath ground level, which is beside Tower 1. Tower 3 will be directly to the right of Tower 4 in that pic, so they don't necessarily make a line, but a 'V'.
