10 and a half long years of ESB's reign as NYC's tallest is coming to an end. May it never return.

Right. Sorry about that. I was looking at the outer skin, and where it's at, instead of the bones.

The second ESB observation deck has already been surpassed by Tower One because the core steel is at the 93rd floor (1,208' 4") so I guess add 8 feet for the splice and you get about 1,216'. The ESB Indoor Observation Deck is 1,212' while others tend to think it's at 1,224' but really it isn't, the observation platform above it is.

I can't see anything conclusive on earthcam so is it really confirmed that it has risen another story?

CULWULLA, awesome diagram! Also nice to see more steel up.

Something else I wanted to say. I wonder if this thread can reach 1776 pages before 1 WTC tops out?

Only the core steel has risen and that goes up to the 93rd floor. The perimeter columns are still at the 92nd floor.

This looks like a nice idea for a SSC 1v1

OK, so here comes my new diagram

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i41.************/2igf253.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 371 meters or 1216 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 244 meters or 801 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 199 meters or 654 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.)

Rep. Grimm Applauds PANYNJ’s Decision to Light One WTC in Red for Cardinal Dolan

PA steps up to honor a hometown hero, after Empire State Building denies the request

NEW YORK, NY – Today, Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R,C-S.I./Brooklyn) applauded the decision of the Port Authority’s Executive Director Patrick Foye to light One World Trade Center in red to honor the elevation of Archbishop Dolan to cardinal. After Rep. Grimm’s request to light up the Empire State Building - which is traditionally lit to honor various causes and individuals - was denied yesterday by the building’s Lighting Partner Committee, the congressman made a similar request to the Port Authority. The Port Authority has agreed to light One World Trade Center – at no cost to the agency - beginning tonight, February 24th, for one week.

“Giving up is not in my DNA. Where there is a will there is a way, and One WTC is even more appropriate as a symbol of hope, courage and the bright future of New York, all of which Cardinal Dolan exemplifies,” said Grimm. “I applaud the Port Authority’s decision to step up and honor our hometown hero by lighting One Word Trade Center in cardinal red. This illumination will not just serve as a celebration of Cardinal Dolan, but of all our city’s heroes. It is an opportunity for all of us to honor the lives and bravery of those we lost, and to show our pride for a local leader who has given so much to the people of New York with his faith and charity.”

Upon its completion, One World Trade Center will become the tallest building in New York City, standing at 1,776 feet. It will have a public observation deck on the 100th and 101st floors for all to enjoy the view of city. The building’s construction has been moving at a pace of about a floor a week, and the steel construction has been completed to the 92nd floor as of today.
