What are the chances that we'll see 2/3WTC in that shot before 1 is completely... Complete? About late next year?

Edit-This shot. Not the other one.

No one even knows if they will be built or paused next year..But 1WTC will be definitely complete before 2 and 3 will be visible in that view..

I'd like to know one thing, how do you folks calculate how tall 1WTC is from the floor count? Do you know it from some page? WTCprogress only says that it's 76 floors now

I think someone vandalized the 1 WTC wikipedia page, as far as I know 1 WTC is not going to be residential.

jersey City, Exchange Place. You can go there via PATH from WTC. It is only one station and costs 4,5$ roundtrip.

The base is exactly 186' 8" high. Then it goes up by 13' 4" every floor to the 87th. The last office floor is the 88th which is 14' 4" tall.
