Kanto, you yourself are saying these other people are dictators yet you are forcing your belief of roof height on everyone so... you yourself are being a dictator. Like has been suggested for you before it would be nice for you to do both an official height (including spires) and your way and i am sure you would not receive nearly as much criticism.

ST: 632m
Abraj: No data on top floor present at SSP
Petronas: 379m
ESB: Rather controverse, there is the roof of the normal floors at like 330m, but then there is litaraly an observation tower on top of it which goes to 381m. Since SSP says this is the roof, I accept it and say 381m
@BK. That possibly works. But there's no way to distinguish it from the outside.
@ST. Hell no. The top 50something meters of the building is the crown.
@Abraj. Exactly.
@Petronas. But there are those cones that go up another 30 meters. That could be the roof.
@ESB. Exactly. You don't even know where the roof is.

- Your numbers are incorrect for the BK ....
Also, your notion of using the ceiling of the top level as the roof height is .... amateur at best.

I removed nearly 40 posts bitching about this roof/spire issue.

Please stop this. That also goes for you, Kanto. Any further posts in this direction will get deleted instantly and might lead to infractions, as some of the latest posts were highly offensive.

(We're using blue color for moderation remarks btw.)

If you feel like discussing the spire vs. height measurement, go there:

Spire vs. roof height measurement - The eternal skyscraper enthusiasts discussion

I just opened this thread to give you people a place for a cultivated discussion of the whole matter.
Please never ever start it in the WDN forums here again, thank you. Now go on with 1WTC.

Are there any info about the details of the observation deck? Will it simply be a observation deck or will there be more?

I'm pretty sure if there was, someone would have posted it by now. I think this gets asked like 2-3 times per page on this thread lol.

Those look like they're taken from Broadway, right by St Pauls, just south of City Hall. So one block East from the site as a whole.
