Even If I would want to, I wouldn't be able to..It's not intended to be residential space..

I'm sure if Bill Gates or some other rich SOB said he wanted that huge double floor and price was no option that they would oblige him. Just think of the views of the city! Good god that would be amazing. Your own express elevator - lol.

Zoning might be a problem, though. But isn't the PA exempt from most of NYC's zoning regulations?

A silly discussion, regardless. It'll end up as a bar or restaurant eventually. 5, 10, or 20 years from now.

Well, actually, if you "offered" hundreds of millions of dollars and were able to convince enough people to vote for you, you could live in the White House.

Not just you. And the Infinity Tower thread has become Dubai Pearl. Either it's a database glitch or someone is monkeying around with the titles.

Thanks to all of you guys! You should also say thanks to Zen, he provided at least 40% of the info in there...
It's not as accurate as I expected, but SketchUp did its work. Probably I'll start using 3D Max... perhaphs in a couple of months...

If I have time and enough data, I'll do some more for 2WTC and 4WTC...
Only I need "Data, data, data, I cannot make bricks without clay!"

I realized my thread titles are not messed up yet because it hasn't passed 12AM out here on the west coast. Now the joke is ruined and I feel left out.

It looks like the thirteenth row of glass is going up! I like that the glass is rising so fast; the building reveals more and more of its final appearance every single day.

Can't wait until they add just one more floor, and it finally should pass the 7WTC for once and for all
