With all this rain you'll have to repost it next week when One acually does pass all those towers.

We just can't get a break with the weather, first snow, now rain.

I think counting the tower's steel is a bit more appropriate. If your going to count the core box, why not count the crane height as well?

The weather is really putting a crimp in the schedule, I was expecting 1WTC to pass 7 in February...

Anyone else here not like the base of 1wtc? the rest looks great!
Hope it looks good when done, but from the renders i don't like the frosted white looking glass on the base compared to the nice deep blue glass of the rest of the building, and not keen on how it tapers inward, would look alot better if it was glass all the way to the bottom . . . what u reckon?

What's wrong with it? It's pretty obvious that it only contains lower Manhattan skyscrapers and nothing from Midtown, in case that's what you were thinking...

Firstly Tower 7 is 741 feet tall and Goldman Sachs 749 feet tall. And why would midtown building be in it, it's for tallest building in Lower Manhattan.

It will be really awesome when you stand at the base of the tower and can see the mammoth columns that make up the foundation, through the glass.

It will probably also allow for a lot of great light in the massive lobby

Only 7 WTC is wrong though, not the whole diagram.

Well, you better take that up with the guys at SkyscraperPage. That is where those diagrams come from. I didn't draw the diagrams, I only grouped the Lower-Manhattan towers together. The artists who drew the diagrams are listed below each one.

As well, FCU should have credited the diagram to SSP and quoted its source:

Nope. It's 741 feet to the parapet crown. There's a small penthouse that goes up to 750 feet. The new diagram correctly reflects this.

It's not frosted. It's undulating. It's hard to say whether or not it will actually be markedly lighter than the rest of the building. Something like that is extremely dependent on what, if any, kind of coating is used on the glass. It will also be much less dependent on angle than the tower panels, since the base will be reflecting back a wide angle of sky. So you'll see it (and give me an hour here to edit in a render) as a completely different color than the tower, while other angles will have similar color.

I don't have an opinion on the glass used for either the base or the tower itself. Personally, I like them both.

However, I would hate to see if the base didn't taper inward and actually continued to taper outward from the top to bottom. If that were the case, it would look like something that belongs in the Middle East.

With all this rain in the forecast, next week.

STR, nice rendering ! By the width of the entrance opening, and lack of internal protection wall, that looks like the east or west side.
