Yeh, probably because they knew NYC would be getting a lot of media attention from around the world and they wanted to highlight the construction of the new tower.

You might just be right. That's a load of free publicity and now a whole bunch of potential tenants could be interested in the WTC

Bear in mind that as one of the world's three great financial capital's NY has a unique demand for office space that few cities can replicate.

I don't think that's a repost. And if it is, it's a very worthy repost

Thanks Effer, that's a really nice information sheet. It contains many things I didn't know previously

Observation deck at 1362 ft? Is that the roof? SSP says the roof is 1368 ft which is only 8 feet higher

From what I know 1368 feet is the roof of the deck and 1362 feet is its floor, so the roof indeed is at 1368 feet

Thanks Effer for posting those screenshots, but that pdf file has wrong data (due to the reason that it's based on the previous design):

The last real floor is 104th, 105th is the roof, then we have the Cooling Tower's catwalks (106), the Communications Ring (107-109) and a platform inside the spire numbered as 110th. This graphic shows the real numbering.

The roof is the 105th fl, El. 1,645' 10", or 1334' 8" from finished lobby floor. The Observation Deck will ocupy floors 100 & 101, El. 1551' 2" and 1565' 4", or 1241' 8" and 1255' 10" above the lobby floor. SSP is wrong.

About that data on the last page:

It says, of the pools, each will hold enough water to fill 50 Empire State Buildings to capacity, does that just mean fill the pipes of the Empire State Building? I can't picture that it meant filling all the empty spaces in the building, wouldn't the pools need to be crazy deep then?
