In January or February the roof should be topped out. Then there is still some work to do before they can start the construction of the spire. The construction of the spire itself will take a half year

Folks, I find it very frustrating that we don't have a clear number on 1WTC roof height (parapet height). Is it now 1368 feet or 1373 feet? STR and SSP thread say it's 1373 feet but Spectre and SSP diagrams say it's 1368 feet, thats's really confusing

I believe it all depends on where they take the elevation. 1WTC isn't built on 100% flat ground. There is a slight slope. From one side its 1368, another its 1373. Just accept it and move on.
