That last picture reminds me of the Breakfast In America album by Supertramp.

What do you mean? It's going to be topped out by February or March I believe, so obviously by August it's going to be that tall. I'm not sure if the spire would be fully completed by August, but if it takes 6 months and they start on it as soon as they top out, who knows.

looks about right to me remember 1 wtc is going to be about a 1000 feet taller than all the buildings that are around it.
