I never got stuck in traffic in that area. And I'm not mistaken that's the Westside highway.

Thank you for Info.

Compliment to everyone who took a photo in the last time. You took really great ones

I agree with Kanto. The one pic which was taken in the air, is awesome. There I feel so small!

Unlike the twins, the inner columns that form the core are encased in rebar and super-concrete; the core compressive strength is higher than any other typical office skyscraper; varying from 8,000 psi (used in the roof) up to 14,000 psi (base).
The base is even stronger than the rest of the tower: the entire frame can withstand the loss of as many as 3 of 6 perimeter columns on any side of the podium.
The same principle http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=457285 The building has been disigned be able to withstand plane attack.

And that is what supertalls are build for. From what I know it is economicaly more profitable to build more smaller buildings rather than few larger buildings. Supertalls are built for impression, which is in my opinion more important than strict profit. Morale does wonders to productivity of workers and working in an imposing, unique masterpiece of art like 1WTC will boost the morale of it's occupants a lot because they will feel privileged and proud to work in such an awesome place. I know that I definitely would feel that way if I would work in 1WTC
