I notice that the beam in this picture is dimpled is that for seismic mitigation (strong column weak beam design).

Hi all.

Hi STR.

The PANYNJ datum is set so that elevation 0 is 297.37 feet below NGVD1929. I did some googling. Makes sense for them so their tunnels can use positive numbers.

Yes, the north entrance on to Vesset St will count under current guidelines.
It's good the lowest entrance will fit the criteria.

No, it's not removable. It's a permanent piece of structure and will count under official guidelines. The building will be 1,787 feet tall.
Cool.
So the height to arch. top and the height to tip will be the same - as it is for many buildings.


Ray.

@ Yazoo: your camera cannot be set on 05-09-2011, can it? Were I am living it is just getting light. That means it is still night and dark in NYC. But great photos by the way, it really shows that WTC1 is groing bigger and it makes a huge impact on south Manhattan again.

To be honest, I think a black cladding somewhat similar to the scaffolding at the base would look pretty nice on the building. Case in point: this picture:

ugly! the contrast of the black against all the other buildings like towers 2 3 and 4 and the WFC will make it stick out not in a good way, better to keep the flow of the entire area.

There's black building down there too. I think a dark blue would better than the light grey or blue color they pick.

I think black would be good for the concrete base. It would make the building look more unique

It won't happen..It will be brighter because street level is darker..No one want's to make it more dark than it already is..It's pure logic..Reflective and bright to bring light down into the canyon..

Would it really hurt the canyon if a small part of the building would be black? I doubt that

I was speaking in general..In this case, probably not because of open space above the memorial..But back on the Vesey street is different story..If architects wanted to put black glass, they could, no one can stop them..But I'm 99,9% sure they won't..
