Awesome pics!! Can't wait until it is completed and takes its place on the skyline. Would love to see all the other proposals for the city come into being. If that were to happen Manhatten would have a totally different skyline. What a better way to say to the world we are coming back, better than ever!

Anyone have some comparison shot of pre-9/11 and now from the same angles of the previous buildings and the current?

I honestly don't know if you're trolling or not... Firstly, the new 1WTC is thinner than the Twins, at 205x205ft, compared to the Twins' 208x208ft. Secondly, why would you use a picture from over half a year ago when the tower was significantly shorter? At least wait until the roof tops out...

excellent point..........for me, and it's crazy, but i think it looks taller from far away and in pics then when i was up against it walking down that alley on the north side going east to west towards WFC. i thought it was going to seem taller than it looked from up close

It should be structurally topped off by July. Add in another 3 months for the concrete flooring to reach the top with another 3 months for the glass cladding to reach top as well.

From the outside, the building should look structurally complete by December 2012.

How about you show a level respect for those who lost loved ones in the September 11 events! Idiot!

I think you don't realize that they will make more money with less investment out of these memorials than building a skyscraper -- Not trying to be intentionally ****e* up even though it will sound wrong that i pointed this out -- but just think about the millions that will continuously visit this memorial and spend money in the area....

No economic need for two skyscrapers there... not to say that it would morally wrong to do such construction in a place where over 2,000 Americans died...

Great to have the World Trade Centre as the tallest building in New York again.

Can you add a redline to your image show where the tower currently is?

It will just clarify as to how much is left to build until it reaches the top.
