One more jump till the office floors are done. Kanto are you going to make a diagram? I like that "chopped off" effect in those diagrams.

From the angle in the pic Kanto has posted in post 27508, it doesn't look as a supertall at all. Or is it just me? (i know it's massive irl)

From the looks of Ken's pic, the steel went up before core scaffolding. Wonder why?

Btw, since new steel has risen it is again time for my famous roof height diagrams. In them we can see that 1WTC is currently the second tallest in NYC and the 6th tallest in the United States.
But I wrote that my diagrams are roof height so what's the problem?

Will this be okay?

Roof height used and meant in all data below:

1WTC is currently the second tallest in NYC and 6th tallest in the US:

[IMG]http://i51.************/332ymqb.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i55.************/4vle2q.jpg[/IMG]

Here I have my new roof height construction diagram:

[IMG]http://i52.************/299ylt.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 327 meters or 1074 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 208 meters or 682 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
1 57 = Approximately 133 meters or 436 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Sweet pictures Kanto! Looks like it's about 3/4 up, at least to the roof. I could be wrong... WTC4 will be about this height once complete. The whole site will dominate Lower Manhattan's skyline!

We should avoid vague and loaded terms like "official height". Explicit terms like tip, roof, highest floor, or architectural height are preferable.

Incidentally, the reason why ctbuh no longer provides roof height rankings is because it became too difficult to come up with indisputable numbers for buildings without simple flat roofs. However this doesn't mean the metric is worthless. Rather it means that it was too controversial and imprecise metric to attempt a definitive list.
