The 102nd floor is 1,266 ft 8 in high. Then add about 4-5 more feet for the column splice.

Yeah seriously. There hasn't been a new render of what the modified spire would look like, so there's no reason to say it's gonna be crappy.

About the spire / antenna, Yahoo posted an article discussing this:

Quote:
So is that needle an antenna or a spire?

"Not sure," wrote Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the building.

The needle will, indeed, function as a broadcast antenna. It is described on the Port Authority's website as an antenna. On the other hand, the structure will have more meat to it than your average antenna, with external cladding encasing the broadcast mast.

We have been getting media here over the past week about WTC 1 surpassing the ESB as NY's tallest building ? I know it got to 102 floors but it still hasn't overtaken the ESB mast yet has it ? I went up to the 102 floor on my last visit. Speaking spires and antennas. The ESB has it's original mast/spire with antenna atop that. So guess it's official height is the base of the antenna. Looking good anyway..........

Ok, so I am right. I found a facebook page called save our spire, and it was all about it being an antennae, and how it would lose it's symbolic height. Anyways, that sucks I liked the original spire a lot more, I like the antennae spire on the trump, but it won't look good on a building like this. BUT, hopefully its more then just a thicker antennae

Sadly, money comes before artistic design. They have realized that they could make money with an antennae, so it's pretty much a done deal
