As to why they are so slow this month I dunno but I doubt it is because they focus on interior construction. Steel erecting, concrete pouring, cladding and interior construction are all synchronized to work together as a team. At least from what I know, so if anybody knows better, please correct me
1: You're not right, it wouldn't be better the other way arround!

2:Might be true. But already said: I don't know.

3: @spectre000: Yes, could be a reason, too.

And hey: We should be happy, that the other buildings of the complex WTC, get a chance to grow! The One WTC have stolen them the show

So first to answer the how tall it is question, it is 310 meters or 1017 feet tall, so it's 12 or 13 meters taller than 4WTC will ever be (dunno if 4WTC will be 297 meters or 298 meters cause different sources give different data ) Here is another diagram to compare it to more NY towers:

Btw, in that diagram posted earlier in this thread, what is the building to the right of 1WTC?

^Don't trust the neighboring buildings shown in the diagram, since they are downloaded from 3D Wharehouse; the only tower that has a high level of accuracy is Tower One. Sometime next month I'll model the whole complex accurately and correct the basic shapes on the diagram.
