No, not even close. There's gotta be maybe 8 taller. I dunno.

@IngMarco
It's currently fifth tallest downtown. Next steel lift will take it above 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza (813'). After that, only 8 Spruce Street (~870'), 40 Wall Street (927'), and 70 Pine Street (952') remain

Currently the 16th tallest in NYC.

With the next jump, it will be the the 11th tallest.

I think all it has to pass is Beekman, 40 Wall St and the American International.

Somebody had a crystal clear photo like that, backed off a little farther. I've been trying to find it all morning.

I mean no offense by this but every time a see the old twin towers on this thread I feel bad. It reminds me of how spectacular they were and, more importantly, how what we are now getting fails to measure up to them.

It is awesome that we will soon have something very nice there rather than simply the huge void in our skyline that we have had for so many years. Nevertheless, there still is disappointment for many of us at the design that was chosen.

I know nothing can be done about it and this thread isn't even really the place to complain about it but if we could avoid reflections on this thread of what once was it will help people like me simply be happy about the new buildings we are getting and not long for what is gone and never coming back.

There is a WTC thread under the New York City grouping that might be more appropriate for these old pictures.

Am I the only one that thinks that the original WTC was just terrible architecture and worse urbanism? These new towers are great, let's keep it real people.

I sorta agree, They were fascinating towering boxes but they cut off cross streets and the plaza wasn't all that great use of space IMO.
As fantastic as the old ones were and the memories I have from Windows on the World I'm happy with the new 1WTC. Many of us wish it had a twin but I'm very happy with the new one. The original design of 1WTC however
was horrible.

Can someone chime in and forgive me if this has been discussed previously as I've searched in the thread and couldn't find it. Is there going to be any lighting scheme on the tower? LEDs or? What sections will be lit if so?

you are not alone ! I also think that the old twin towers looked hideous
and ruined the skyline of lower manhattan. I appreciate the new development.

What an amazing picture! I'm stoked about the new 1WTC, but the design of the Twin Towers still fascinates me.
