It's up to the 78th floor, 960 feet + 4 ft for the splice = 964 feet high.

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.

Nice job Otie. But isn't that "core column" actually a perimeter column? And also, I believe 4WTC is past 500 feet, but I understand why you didn't change that. But still, nice job!

Did the architects and designers of this tower have already made a decision on what are they going to do with the bunker base?
By the way, this is interesting!

Sure thing, tomorow I'll make one with feet, so there will be 2 of them, one in meters and one in feet

Btw specter000, I thought we were at floor 76. At least that's what wtcprogress.com says

wtcprogress.com is usually a little behind. Don't always trust them. We can clearly see a lone column for floors 77 and 78 poking up from Carlos pictures (on SSP).

Here are the floor heights for the rest of 1WTC, *add about four additional feet for the column splice and you'll have the height of 1WTC.

79 - 973' 4"
80 - 986' 8"
81 - 1,000'
82 - 1,013' 4"
83 - 1,026' 8"
84 - 1,040'
85 - 1,053' 4"
86 - 1,066' 8"
87 - 1,080'
88 - 1,093' 4" (last office floor, 14' 4" height)
89 - 1,107' 8" (broadcasting floor)
90 - 1,130' 8" (broadcasting floor)
91 - 1,151' 8" (mechanical)
92 - 1,181' 8" (mechanical)
92M - 1,194' 8" (mechanical)
93 - 1,208' 4"
93M - 1,223' 6"
100 - 1,240' (ex restaurant)
101 - 1,254' 2" (ex restaurant)
102 - 1,266' 8" (observation level)
103 - 1,293' 4"
104 - 1,313' 10"
105 - 1,334' 8" (roof)
top of parapet - 1,368'
106 - catwalk
107-109 - communications ring
110 - fictional/symbolic floor located in spire

You beat me, spectre One thing though, the Observation Deck is going to be located at floors 100 & 101. I understand Zen had the prints, but the PA flipped both of them a while back (don't remember the exact time).

[QUOTE=Im Using A Computer;]Come to think of it, sears tower will look a good deal bigger than this tower. This is still a large building though.

Since the Willis roof is 83 feet taller yeah a little bit but with 1 wtc communication platform ring will lessen the effect a little but pinnacle height 1 wtc will be taller by 46 feet.

Do folks even bothering reading posts in this thread?!

I don't know why I even bother.

LOL. I know for some people they couldn't care less. But to some of us, we think way too much about it. Oh well.

The Real Deal

Quote:
Concrete worker walk-outs at WTC prompt rumors of strike
August 01, 2011 03:30PM

Hundreds of unionized cement and concrete workers have walked off the job at the World Trade Center site in response to the cement league trying to cut their pay by up to 20 percent, NY1 reported.

The walk-out may spell a strike, since the concrete workers have been working without a contract since July 1, but the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey says it will have no effect on the Sept. 11 memorial construction schedule.

"It's a horrible situation, you know? We built this city and they want to take money away from us, in this bad economy," said John Hardt, a member of the Cement and Concrete Workers Union.

A spokesperson for the Cement League said negotiations are ongoing.

Concrete workers stopped working on the WTC transit hub at Tower 1, the Wall Street Journal said.

The stoppage will have "no impact on construction of the 9/11 Memorial, which remains on track to open on the 10th anniversary [of the attacks], and minimal impacts on the site's other projects," said Steve Coleman, a spokesperson for the Port Authority.

---
I hope that 1WTC will not be badly affected by this but we'll see...

The tower is important, but workers are first. What gets me mad is not stopping the construction, but prejudicing other workers that aren't involved in this stoppage.

Work Stoppage at WTC

Quote:
The work stoppage forced about 600 other World Trade Center laborers to be sent home because construction could not proceed without concrete workers, Mr. Coletti added.

I went to NYC to on the weekend of July 16-17th and saw this beauty for the first time. I must say that I have never seen such a sparkling tower in my life. It looked absolutely flawless lol. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this tower being complete. It will be a gem in the New York Skyline. Here's a pic I took the day I saw it:

Not at all, Sears tower is 150X75 feet wide at the top compared to 200X140 for WTC1 and. Sears is not even 100 feet higher and shorter to the pinnacle, look at the SSP diagram, they are of similar height.

However those will be the only 400 meter towers in the USA to the roof unless 2WTC turns out to be that tall.
