That's because the first one is in meters and the second one is in feet. I use meters but the Americans here use feet

Horizontal steel is up separating floors 88 and 89 (I believe).

One World Trade Center is really doing great. Even though not considered an actual building, Tower One is almost as tall as the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas at 1,149'. Just a little over 100' to go before it tops the Empire State Building all over again like the Twin Towers did in the 1970's.

The 4 antennas of 3WTC look so tiny in that video it makes me think whether there hasn't been another redesign

Btw, I have pics

The completed renders look awesome. A very nice addition to the lower Manhattan skyline.

Thanks, I appreciate it. This is my first big forum and when I came here I didn't know how such a forum works. I have done my share of mistakes (and there were many of them) but I'm constantly trying to learn from them and from other forumers

The best thing is, that we have a new tower, equal in height.

Actually 1WTC is 1 meter taller than the North Tower because of different heights of some entrances. The CTBUH regard the lowest entrance as the starting point of measuring a building's height. This also means that the famous 1776 feet will in fact not be the building's pinnacle height
