Just to make sure, the first floor above the base is floor 21, right?

The first floor above the base is the 20th floor. I'll post the rest of the floor heights after work if someone doesn't beat me to it.

@Kanto, if you wanna make a diagram or some update whenever they install new core/perimeter steel columns, you should count another 4' splice.

Are there any renders of what it will look like on the top floor of 1 WTC, before the roof?

There's still alot of material that need to go through the lobby + some mechanical equipment need to be installed above the lobby floor before adding the base cladding. Another reason why they aren't installing the panels is because once installed it's easy to get damaged.

The original plans featured prismatic glass panels, but due to costs issues, they needed to be redesigned. No aviable information of the new panels.

OK, so with the new information I got I calculated that 1WTC is now 937 feet or 286 meters tall, making it the third tallest building in NY with lacking only 2 meters to reach the height of the BoA tower:

After the next jump, when it'll beat BoA, I'll make a diagram for the entire US, since it will still be far away from beating ESB.

BTW, to be consistent about not counting spires, you will never have it pass the Sears Tower, correct?

Yup, for me 1WTC will always be shorter than the Willis Tower, making it upon it's completition the 2nd tallest in the US

Also, can you please give heights in feet? Many readers here are from the US and don't like dealing with meters - it is hard for us to conceptualize. For example, I care about when it breaks the 1,000 foot threshold, not when it breaks the 300 meter mark. If you can give both feet and meters that would be great.

Some black scaffolding started to form around the southeastern corner of the base, does anybody know what this is for?

That is fair, and I agree. They should have made this thing taller and let us overtake Chicago.

Somebody should tell him ESB only about 1,060 feet, without the spire.

Come to think of it, sears tower will look a good deal bigger than this tower. This is still a large building though.
