I am assuming there saving the single steel column for the next floor jump for 1 wtc to make the 1000 foot mark.

And yeah, I miss our lonely column too

Just go to the Buildings and Architecture subforum and search for locked threads, you can't miss them, there's several of them

Trust me, you would love SSP because there are a ton of people there who hate me more than anything else. You could chat all day and night about how you hate me and who hates me the most and about similar things

Thank goodness you hold a grudge with SSP and not this site, otherwise we couldn't benefit from those fabulous, accurate roof-height diagrams.

I've been to SSP Kanto. I was there way before I moved over here. I still visit those boards, but they're too slow for my interests (although nowadays things seem to be speeding up what with Carlos and Traynor moving over there).

And people dislike you because from what we've seen, you needlessly bring up your favor of roofs and your supposed hatred of spires.



On topic, on Wiki, the 1WTC page says that it's at the 79th floor. Can someone confirm?

Kanto, the "war" you talk about was because you refused to accept reality time and time again, stubbornly refusing to accept facts from experts. A mature person would just admit that they were wrong and apologize, but . . . this is the Internet, maturity not required.

This is really making some good progress, or at least it has since I last checked it. I might be going to New York soon and I'd love to visit the site again. Last time I was there, the cranes were just getting put up.

As I said before, it was only a thought experiment so relax dude. Besides, that's a matter of SSP, not SSC, so please stay on topic and don't bring up stuff that belongs to SSP

Btw, Otie, that's a great angle, I love it Is it taken from 3 WFC, or from the Goldman Sachs Tower?

I thought at the 78th floor the height should have been 964 feet / 293 meters That's at least the info I got from another forumer, so I dunno which is correct

Btw, awesome diagram Perfect job

The Goldman Sachs Tower

As always, awesome diagrams Cul! Two WTC is above B2 with some steel rising already above grade and Tower 3 is also above B2.
