You will be amazed at what a interior designer can do with such a dark and bare space

I believe that is the 259 meters tall American International Building. According to SSP diagrams it is an office building

Btw, since new steel went up it is again time for my famous roof height diagram checklist

1WTC is currently 318 meters or 1044 feet tall and has reached floor 84. It is currently the second tallest building in NYC and the 6th tallest building in the US.

Just post it..People usually don't pay attention to signatures while reading posts..I'm ok with you counting heights whatever you want, just make sure you let people know that it's your way..Because otherwise it would be giving a wrong information..Thanks Kanto..

Many people have signatures turned off because they want to read forum posts and not read repeated red text signatures for no apparent reason.

Seriously, just label those charts so that there aren't comments every time.

GSA lease deal makes 1 WTC over half-full

By STEVE CUOZZO
Last Updated: 12:55 PM, September 29, 2011
Posted: 11:37 PM, September 28, 2011

The US General Services Administration has signed a preliminary agreement to lease 300,000 square feet at 1 World Trade Center, The Post has learned -- a deal that will push the iconic tower over the psychologically crucial 50 percent-full mark.

The agency signed the term sheet -- a nonbinding document that spells out all major terms and nearly always leads to a completed lease -- with the tower’s owners, the Port Authority and the Durst Organization.

Although a GSA lease has been talked about for years, it never before reached the term-sheet stage until the past few days.

The deal is likely to be completed by the end of the year, sources said.

Previously, Condé Nast signed for more than 1 million square feet and China’s Beijing Vantone for 200,000 in the 3 million square-foot skyscraper.

Just as important, the GSA lease is for only half the space it originally intended to take at 1 WTC when negotiations started four years ago.

The smaller GSA commitment is a sign of health for 1 WTC, whose owners didn’t want their world-class tower filled with government agency bureaucrats.

The Port Authority and Durst are now confident of luring higher-paying private-sector tenants for the just under 1.5 million square feet that remain available.

Sources said the GSA will pay an effective starting rent on the 20-year lease in the mid-$50s per square foot, taking subsidies into account. The agency will be on floors 50-56.

Durst and a Cushman & Wakefield team led by Tara Stacom are marketing the remaining space, most of it in the tower’s highest floors.
Ugh, more federal offices...

I almost feel it shouldn't count. It's more of a bad sign for the economy and the hope that varying parts of the private sector will move in, not just to this tower but any other.

"The smaller GSA commitment is a sign of health for 1 WTC, whose owners didn’t want their world-class tower filled with government agency bureaucrats."

That quote offers me some hope though.

Has anybody looked at the September 2011 edition of Architectural Record? There are 30 pages all about the new WTC. Diagrams, timelines, renders, photos, floorplans, pretty much everything there is to know about the entire WTC site

Fold-out cover:
