There are so many buildings that look like the Freedom Tower that it is kind of a shame...

On the plus side, it still looks like the North Tower!

I think this thing needs to get to about 1,100 feet before it starts to dominate the lower Manhattan sky line. Right now it is just another tall building among many.

Anyone know when it should hit the 1,100 foot level?

My guess would be by the end of summer or somewhere around 10th anniversary..
