Very old idea, I haven't seen those pictures in years.

Anyway it's good to see some new steel go up.

Render #4 looks like one of STR's.

Are there any renders of how the base is going to look? I now know about the "glass fins", but would like to see an example...

Well, since new steel went up today it is again time for my famous roof height diagrams

1WTC is at this moment at floor 82 with a height of 310 meters / 1017 feet. It is currently the second tallest building in NYC and the 7th tallest building in the United States. It is only 1 foot shorter than the US bank Tower in LA:

And one more diagram to show the actual height of 1WTC and compare it with it's NYC neighbours:
