From the diagram it looks like it could be a race between WTC 1 and WTC 4 as to who will top out first (not counting spires of course). It looks like WTC 1 is slightly closer to topping out than is WTC 4 but not by much.

WTC 4 is going to be huge. Note that WTC 1 is not yet even at the height that WTC 4 will ultimately have. I think once completed WTC 4 will be the second tallest building in Lower Manhattan until WTC 2 and WTC 3 are built, correct?

That's my understanding.

Yeah, 4 WTC will be 975 feet tall. The tallest in LM (as of today) is the American International Building, which stands at 952 feet tall.

it was an article posted on this thread a week or two ago. Scroll back and you should find it. It was the same one where Bloomberg also sort of complained that there wouldn't be an outdoor observatory.

@kenersej: You can read it on the respective websites: PANYNJ, SOM, WSP Cantor Seinuk Group,
Ralph Applebaum & Associate and Silverstein Properties; all of them mention a 2-story observation deck.

My diagram has some errors, mainly horizontal lines that aren't aligned with the real height; and the Restaurant or whatever is going to be should be on the 102nd fl while the Observation Deck on the 100 & 101 fl. All of those errors are going to be fixed by today night.

Yea, that's why he said "the restaurant or whatever", in the sense "whatever is going to be there instead".

I'm surprised that the cocoon hasn't been lifted up yet.

They should open a Windows on the World -esque restaurant on the upper floors of WTC 2, or maybe 3, and put an outdoor observatory on the roof of WTC 4. That'd be sweet.
