Is it me or is the cladding on 1 WTC at the same height as 7 WTC?

About 2 floors below it, but it's close enough.

I think the interesting part will be the top of this building. Since it will have muuch more details, air grills, and some sort of steal work visible. Because the upper floors will be taller, then the office ones.



This render made by "STR" shows what i mean.

Credit for the render goes to: STR!!!!!

I am drooling over any render of the whole complex. <3

I think this might be a photoshopped composite. But then again, who cares?

There used to be a Ferry Terminal , and Railway docks along the Jersey City Waterfront. Starting in the 1970s they were closed and the Railway network / Ferry Terminal moved to Hoboken which is the largest and only Full Intermodal Terminal in this region. Those wooden piers or pegs will be torn up when the New Marina gets built.

I'm from the U.K. and I am going to New York and Chicago next August, at what stage will the tower be at by then?

I'm expecting it to be fully topped out, fully cladded and the spire will be under-construction. Is this correct?

Thanks

Next August? By then it'll be either newly complete or very very close to completion (externally)
