I don't want to discourage Kanto, I think it is convenient for him to make roof height diagrams while I make spire height diagrams. Works out pretty good IMO

I think it's pretty obvious that that was a diagram of roof height no offense

Don't all the trades typically walk out in New York if one does? Or is this just a dispute between the concrete supplier and workers and not the general contractor?

Strikebreaking in NY risks getting a pair of concrete overshoes, especially in this case!

Okay, this message goes to oilmanjr and azn_man12345! You two are bullies, whenever I post my diagrams you attack me and insult me! Did you ever see me attack and insult somebody for posting an official height diagram? No! Also, you lie that everybody hates my diagrams when in fact the vast majority of forumers like them, as proven by the poll last week! I'm trying to contribute and you two just throw insults at me! Don't force your opinions to other people like a dictator! Unless you have a mild form of dementia you must already know that I will continue to make my diagrams the way I make them and there isn't anything you can do against it, period, so learn to live with it!

officially it will be 1wtc at 1776 but at 1450 feet sears will have the tallest roof, but there are people like kanto that will say the sears tower is the tallest .

Please stop the Sears Tower vs. 1WTC beef now. It doesn't lead anywhere here.

If you feel like it, you can open a separate thread at Citytalk and Urban Issues. But don't go on here.

6 floors in a month, now? Is that right? Not bad. Hopefully the concrete situation is resolved soon.

I like unions, but I don't want this to delay the tower. They were finally moving at a good pace!

^ Yes, that lone column makes Tower One 960' + 4' column splice= 964' (~293.8m)
Check Carlos' updates at SSP, he has some great pics showing that column.

Oh and that pic doesn't belongs to me, it belongs to SPS101.

*I'm not sure if the column splice is 4' for that core column, seing Carlos' pics it looks like the splice is about 1/2 the total floor height. Maybe 6'... don't know..

Well, I have a rather troubling history with SSP, pretty much like Carlos has with SSC, so I don't really visit their forums anymore. But thanks for notifying me about the splice. I think I rather give it the regular 4' in my status checklists. After all, that's what they usually measure

1WTC is at this moment at floor 78 standing at a height of 294 meters / 964 feet. It is currently the 10th tallest building in the United States and the 2nd tallest building in New York City. Below are diagrams for comparison:
