Also, while it is true that 1wtc slightly tapers at top, I think visually, once all the cladding is on, and it is topped out, it will look much more streamlined from top to bottom than it does now, with only part of the glass on..It will look much taller than some think, I believe...Remember it is going to be the exact roof height as the old North Tower after all!

That will be some day when the spire is complete and the building finished.

You're right.

Once this building is finished, many are going to admire it.
There is no way this building is topping out in April. Its already mid-Feb and even if we give it till the end of April, that is only 10 weeks.

This building will do a max of 1 floor per week, if that. I would say 1 floor every 2 weeks.

Currently it is at 92 floor to go to 106 floor.

With 14 floors to go, and 2 weeks per floor to top out.

That is 28 Weeks. Which means the building will top out either in late June or early July.

Thanks so much, I will do my best to do more videos from other parts of the city. Also like in most of my videos I like to show people what 1 World Trade looks like from The Rockaways. You just wait when this beauty is complete with full cladding and of course topped out how she will shine in the sunrise and sunsets and I will be there to capture it on video and picture it.

I thought it was two floors per week.

They are building approximately 1 floor per week, and 1 WTC is 104 floors, not 106. It should be topped out by April.

False, there no 94-99 floors, which technically means there is only about 6 more floors to go. If it does take 1 floor per 2 weeks, it would only take 12 weeks, 12 weeks from today will be in april.

The steel is up to floor 92 at the moment. Which leaves 9 floors left, plus 4 "fictional" levels (5 if you want to count the one there putting in the spire representing Floor 110 in honor of the Twins) after the parapet. Top out of the roof/parapet in April seems like a long shot. But doable if DCM gets its act together and the weather cooperates.

Here are the remaining floors and heights.

92M 1,194’ 8”
93 1,208’ 4”
93M 1,223’ 6”
100 1,240’
101 1,254’ 2”
102 1,266’ 8”
103 1,293’ 4”
104 1,313’ 10”
105 1,334’ 8” (roof)

Top of parapet 1,368’

106 catwalk
107-109 communication spires

Top of spire 1,776’

Omg, that's going to be amazing!

I think this is perhaps a little excessive.

True, most of the mid and upper 90s floors are mechanical, and it may not take them as long to construct them...Will the parapet be installed at the same time as the topping out of the roof? Like in tandem with it? I know it will be awhile after the initial topping out before the spire is hoisted into place. Definately very excited, the topping out of this tower will be such a big milestone and a hopeful thing for so many who have wanted the skyline reclaimed!

I think if the steel reach the roof height they will first finish the core and maybe the cladding before they work on the spire.

I think the roof will be built out before the parapet but I could be wrong, I'm just speculating. I think it'll be interesting to see if they remove one or both of the cranes at the top to make way for the mech equipment and communications ring. Perhaps the climbing crane will lift the spire pieces. The roof will be pretty crowded with two cranes, mech equipment, the comms ring, etc.

I can't wait to see it played out.
