Just watched a really breath taking and heart braking documentary on an English channel called ITV, about the events that took place. At the end it had some facts, one of the facts was 'one world trade centre' is currently under construction on ground zero and is 400ft taller then previous WTC, it is due for completion 2013.

Surely the fact is not true?

Seems like the 14-24mm by Nikon, a very nice but expensive lens. The diameter of the lens is so wide that there are no filters for this lens.

No, it is only 49 feet taller.

It won't look like that after it's finished. It's only that bright because of the construction lights.

Some new stuff..
Worth reading..

http://archrecord.construction.com/p...ade-Center.asp



Quote:
On any given day, forming of the core lags behind erection of the surrounding steel moment frame by about 10 stories.


Quote:
One WTC's core will enclose two egress stairs that lead to a transfer floor just above the lobby and four exits at grade.








Quote:
The interior of the lobby behind glazed entry portals will be sheltered with concrete walls more than 2 feet thick and slotted to allow daylight to penetrate.

Great stuff Dino. Thanks for hunting it down and sharing.

BTW, that 3 dimensional egress diagram makes the amount of office space on upper floors look REALY small.

Great to know that daylight will make it into the lobby, a lot of us were scared that it would just be a dark concrete bunker.

Great vantage point. Can your camera zoom closer to the top?
