With a Steel Column, a Tower Will Reclaim the Manhattan Sky

If the winds are forgiving enough over Lower Manhattan — up where workers can see the whole outline of the island’s tip — a steel column will be hoisted into place Monday afternoon atop the exoskeleton of 1 World Trade Center and New York will have a new tallest building.
More important, downtown will have reclaimed its pole star.

Poking into the sky, the first column of the 100th floor of 1 World Trade Center will bring the tower to a height of 1,271 feet, making it 21 feet higher than the Empire State Building.

After several notorious false starts, a skyscraper has finally taken form at ground zero. At first, its twin cranes could be detected creeping over the jumbled tops of nearby towers. Then, at the rate of a new floor every week, it began reshaping the Manhattan skyline as seen from New Jersey. By late last fall, it could be spotted from the control tower at La Guardia Airport, eight and a half miles away.

A tower has again become an inescapable presence at the southern end of Manhattan.

The author Neal Bascomb, who drives into New York every few weeks from Philadelphia, where he lives, recalled a growing awareness that 1 World Trade Center was visible from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and that it was ratcheting perceptibly taller on each visit. “You know, I was happy to see it,” he said. “I thought, ‘Wonderful.’ ”

From a construction point of view, the completion of the framework, known as the topping out, will be a more significant milestone. That is to occur in a couple of months, when 1 World Trade Center reaches 1,368 feet at its rooftop parapet, identical in height to the first 1 World Trade Center, which was destroyed, with the rest of the complex, in the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. The ultimate topping out will be the completion next year of an antenna that will bring the structure’s overall height to 1,776 feet.

So it won't top out in May.

Most likely late June or more symbolically, July 4

Il est debout 378 mètres au-dessus du niveau du sol. Demain, une colonne nouvelle sera placé, ce qui va rend la tour de 387 mètres de haut.

Agreed, 2017 seems more realistic when it comes to guess the year of full completition.

2017 is pretty optimistic IMO.

They won't begin demolition of the current PATH entrance (east of 1WTC) till probably 2015 (after the Calatrava PATH station is opened). Towers 3 and 4 need to be close to full before Silverstein will start 2WTC.

It took 7WTC six years to lease up.

Just an antenna? Or just a narrower spire?

I hope it still counts as 1776 feet and not 13XX.

No, it will still count as a spire, albeit a crappy spire like the one on Trump Tower Chicago.

That's weird I read that it wouldn't count because it's an antennae, can you link me to something saying it does count ?

Also i like Trump's spire! It looks good from most angles.
