I think the last pic (posted by IanG) is not very recent, the KPI TV webcam doesn't show columns around the edge (neither Carlos shots from yesterday), also the cladding on the pic is four floors below the scaffolding (on webcam only two). But anyway, great to see another increase in height..

I guess the building will be ready by early 2013.

Well its just terminology but topping out occurs only when structural height is reached. And since the mast/spire is structural part of the building (it's included in official height) the topping out will occur only in September 2012.

I just say this because it seems all people here repeat wrong information lately and it may confuse some others.

My new diagram is ready

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i41.************/14b2v4z.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 340 meters or 1115 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 217 meters or 712 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
1 57 = Approximately 145 meters or 476 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.)

1WTC is with 340 meters or 1115 feet currently the 6th tallest building in the US:

Nice diagram Kanto. I was wondering if you could do a diagram comparing 1 WTC's current height to the height of the original twins. Thought that'd be cool

After that, can you put the buildings in the proper order? Total height?

Thanks And comparing the old WTC to the new WTC is a good idea. Here is what I just made:

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i44.************/23rl5oo.jpg[/IMG]

This diagram is updated with today's height jump of 4WTC. It looks like now it has approximately 227 meters or 742 feet but as Spectre said in the 4WTC thread, it is still questionable whether it's the steel for the 2 trapezoid office floors or it's still an oversized last non-trapezoid mechanical floor steel so this data is still questionable

Btw, msl1, I'm using roof height in my diagrams so the buildings are in the correct order according to that

That means that in terms of height, the new WTC will have the same impact on the skyline as the old one? Just that it will be a single building coupled with shorter ones, rather than two 400m's?

Yup, that's Libeskind masterplan, density distributed in 5 skyscrapers.

I'm not going to repost them, but those black and white shots were fabulous. Turn back the clock 75 years, and it could be those guy's great-granddads putting up the ESB. Timeless!

Every construction worker in those photos is buff. I guess it must be from all that lifting and torquing.
