That new perimeter column appears to go as high as the 92nd floor. I don't have the elevation figures in front of me at the moment unfortunately.

I think it surpassed the BOA tower now, So Now Tower 1 is the second tallest in NYC.

Well, I don't count masts as height.

So it is as my eyes tell me as it is, these perimeter columns are not only for 1 floor like the core columns raised a week ago but are 2 floors tall

So here goes my updated diagram

Roof height used below!



1WTC = 362 meters or 1189 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 235 meters or 771 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 196 meters or 642 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.)

Btw, with this jump 1WTC has beaten the Trump Chicago Tower and is now the 3rd tallest building in the US

So 1 wtc is on the 92 floor so that makes it around 1187 ?

Finally new steel!! This means the sliding crane can move up and cladding can fill in. Does it also mean it's surpassed Bank of America?

The cranes are 200 feet higher than BOA, and the roof is also about 200 some feet higher

So it's been passed Bank Of America for a long time

Yes, that's right. But it's not fair to count them.

Today was a great day for 1 World Trade with all of the new steel, this weekend I hope to get more video and pics from Rockaway and Brooklyn and focus on the new steel.

my point was that visually this building is already well past BOA.

The cranes are equally as thick as BOA spire and the steel is now 240' above BOA rooftop

The sliding crane on 1 wtc will jump on wed, weather permitting. NYC cranes and derricks asked it be not jumped on Tuesday due to parade and number of people downtown. So DCM & PA agreed,
