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.
Now I'm puzzled. From where was the 1645 feet measure measured?

Hooray! It appears there's no real damage from Irene.
Aside from some down trees and mild flooding I don't see any noticeable damage. And the wtc site looks fine.

Is there any idea or diagram, how fast they will put couple of upper mechanical floors? I´m sure, they complete next 8 office floors until the end of October, but I don´t know, how tall will be next beams at each floor.

So my opinion is: Jan/ Feb 2012: Roof is T/O
March/ Apr 2012: Spire is T/O
March/ Apr 2012: 4 wtc is T/O

I thought the same. As you said, it can't be filling the volume of the Empire State Building 50 times, since the footprint of the ESB is roughly similar to the area of the pools, a rough calculation tells you that they have to be like 350 meters x 50= 17500 meters deep! which obviusly they're not. Anyway, that fact is odd.

I'd love to show it but I don't know how

Upload it to ************ and then put the last of the links (direct link) into the insert image window which's icon is located in the post writing options

Btw Milllos, it'll take them far longer to build the spire because they said that it'll take them 6 months to assemble it and they can only begin it's assembly once the building is topped out

All PANYNJ projects use Battery Park point as 0 elevation, which is 300' below mean high tide. So if the lobby is at El. 311' 2", it is only 11' 2" above the mean high tide.
Check the diagrams I have been doing since last year, I hope I can answer your questions without typing.

It's so they don't have to deal with negative numbers on projects such as underwater tunnels, the WTC bathtub, etc.

So since there appears to be very minimal damage from Irene, when can we expect more construction?
