By shorter than the ESB do we mean 34 meter shorter than the roof height or the top of the ESB spire/antennas?

We mean shorter than the "roof" since the antennas do not count towards height. However the roof may or may not be where you think it is on ESB.

I meant the roof as it is stated in the SSP diagrams. The ESB gets incredibly thin in it's upper 51 meters so sometimes there are doubts wether this thin top should be counted in measuring roof height. The height which I used is 381 meters and 1WTC is 347 meters atm

It looks like they still have a lot of work to do before they finally reach roof height. If anyone does not like the new Building, and prefer the original tower, they should look at it, as in it's basically a Square going all the way up, and the sides have been cut down so that it becomes another exact square as the base but twisted on the top

Maybe you'd think different if you were black in America. Anyway how did they get in the building.

Get over yourself you weren't a slave and none of us were around for that its absurd how it's even still an issue. If African Americans say they want to be equal like all of us(which they are) then stop publicizing all the negatives of the past and making a big deal out of nothing.

Anyway back on topic, heard from someone I know that works down at the WTC that they are very close to another tenant signing after the new year. Hope it's true!

I don't think someone with a username like yours is qualified to discuss things with as much gravity as racism.

And your first two posts are very... interesting. Not newbie material. What was your username before you were banned?

My username has absolutely nothing to do with what kind of topics I am eligable to speak on. I was never banned actually because I never have done anything to be banned for, so know your facts before you make untrue comments. I'm on here every day, I just never bother to post actually.
