I think the 1WTC diagram at SSP should be changed from 417 meters / 1368 feet to 418 meters / 1371 feet since this is how the CTBUH will measure it's height

Btw hey folks, I have pics

Hi all.

In prints, the finished main lobby floor is at El. 311'-2"; as you may know, zero elevation is 300' below mean high tide at Battery Park Point. All PA projects use this as basis so they don't have to deal with negative numbers like in tunnels.
I can't confirm the exact elevation of the north entrance since Zensteeldude didn't publish on his Flickr Photostream any prints displaying this section; however he did shared some prints with STR, who stated himself that north entrance is at El. 307'-10" a couple of months ago.
One other thing, the lightning rod height was a completely guess doing a pixel analyisis with the diagram released by ArchRecord. The final arrangement can vary from any set of prints.
Hi Otie.

Thanks for the response.

That PA zero elevation is also 297.37 feet below NGVD1929 datum, which is a hybrid model of the mean sea level from 26 tide guages and a set of elevations of all bench marks resulting from the adjustment of 1929.

STR has the lightning rod at 5 feet in one of his labeled drawings, so 1792 height to tip.
We'll see what the official measure turns out to be.

Looks like the 1787 height to arch. top is a good bet though.


Ray.

was driving home tonight over the GWB and saw the top half of it, it's going to look great from that angle when it's completed, with the beacon on the spire.

LOL, lately we didn't see good progress. It's nearly a month since the last jump. Is this big 23' floor really that complicated to build?
