If you look at this pictures, you could mean, the One WTC is already ready!
Just think, the cranes are away, and you have it!
Oh my god....How awesome it's going to look, when it's built ready in reality!

I was thinking about this, when your post came online! (Very strange...)
Well, I don't know it, it's really difficult to find it out, but I think the ground floor. (?)

I believe the smallest office floor is around 21,000 sq ft total.

Is there any way to render the height in, say, 1 or 2 months from now? Would just like to see approximately what it'll look like once the office floors are complete.

I dont get it. THIS thread says it will be 108 stories but other places say its 104 stories. Will they change the model of the freedom tower and make it 110 floors?

If this thread says it then it's legit.

Adding to the confusion, Wikipedia says it'll be a 105-story supertall skyscraper.

Hopefully by tomorrow 1 wtc will just be 3 feet shorter than the Chrysler and times building.
