The request for proposal by Durst organization is pretty open allowing potential operators to creative. Remember the old WTC OB deck had a motion simulator helicopter ride also besides the view from 107.

Yup, but I'd like to note that I'm using the 418 meter figure measured from the lowest above ground entrance so that the height of this tower is not such an epic fail. If you use the 417 meter figure then the height is 361 meters

Often at night when the buildings are being cleaned the lights all go on. Usually it's floor to floor but I'm sure with enough people they are doing all floors at once.

This particular building (the Goldman Sachs Headquarters building) is always lit like this. I've been asking around for ages, and no one seems to be able to provide a clear answer as to why.

Sorry for O/T.

I really missed the effect the World Trade Center had over the World Financial Center because it made those buildings look small and after 9/11 they looked big. Now the tables have turned once again finally and Tower 1 towers over everything. It's nice to have that back.

The crane inspector got back to me and corrected the value, it is 307,900 lbs, so call it 154 tons , with no framing and no load. Sorry, I want to be accurate.
