Buildings are not people.
Twin siblings change appearance and height over time due to environmental factors.

1 WTC was intentially built 6 feet higher than 2 WTC, and did not look the same due to that antenna.

It will be at roof height by then, but a spire is not expected until the end of the year at best.

It'll be topped out to the roof, the spire definitely won't be complete by then.

I personally think it will be symbolic that it will get topped off on July 4th.

of course it would be symbolic, but they arent going to stall on purpose just to meet a date that was never previously planned. how much more symbolic could it be?

stall?

I think you mean rush to get it topped off by july 4th

It took 2 months to go from 359 Meters on the 92nd floor to where its currently at 386 Meters.

To top out it needs to reach 417 Meters, which is roughly the same height jump as it did in the last two months.

Based on their current pace, I would say it will take them 2 months to top out. So early July and my guess is they will try to aim for July 4th as a symbolic date.

My gut feeling.

fair point, things have been slow lately and the months are moving quickly. regardless though, dates dont mean anything to this tower, its already representitive enough in itself. it will be done when its done.
