So my opinion is once it passes 800 feet, it will surely start to take its true form and we will start to see the real thing look like its renders.
They are on the 64th floor right now, exactly 773 feet 4 inches. The base is 186' 8" tall (20th floor). Add 13' 4" for every floor above that. 66th floor will take it to 800' exactly.

* I guess your adding additional height for the column splice...

Donations in Zensteeldude's Name

I have received a message from Linda regarding anyone interested in donations in Zensteeldude 's (Chris) name:

Quote:
Mitchell

Thank you for all your help.

Nicol is in _______ (please do not mention the state) scattering Chris's ashes on the farm where he was born.

I have read the last few pages of the forum and am brought to tears again.

For those who can afford it, I'm sure that Chris would want Liberty Bonds to be bought in order to support the Silverstein Towers. I know that Chris and Nicol have bought many.

We would be honored if those compelled to make a donation in his name would donate to the American Red Cross, The 9/11 Memorial Foundation or to their local PBS station.

Ask them to donate in Zensteeldude's honor. I do not wish to give out his full name.

Thank you once again,

Linda

Yes, I was adding the column splice, cause that is part of the buildings structor. and what you said about the base is accurate.

Thanks Traynor for sharing this with us.

I've Been thinking a lot about Zen over the last few days and my fondest memory of him is when he TOTALLY LOST IT about people posting meters not feet when talking about 1 World Trade Centers height. I'm laughing right now just typing this. CLASSIC!!!

WOW, that's amazing. It is going to look incredible once the trees grow a bit bigger and the buildings are finished.

I will definitely have to come visit in a couple of years.

Can anyone please tell me what the building is going up (or being deconstructed?) to the right of the glass box that's to the rear of WTC1, which I think is WTC7, in this photo. Any threads on it?

Great pictures btw
