the title should be changed back to 1776 feet 541 meters
How the PA calls their antenna is unimportant. It announced that the spire is definitely scrapped and there will definitely be the antenna we see on the new renders, end of story. The thread title should remain 1374/419 cause that is what we are getting

To all the people who are complaining because there are constant complaints (lol) about the Spire:

You really dont get it do you?

Simply "shuting up" or just "wait and see" doesnt cut it...

If people dont COMPLAIN (and yeah all letters capitalized) in any way and any form possible then there is NO CHANCE for things to change. You really think that "just wait and see" is going to change anything? REALLY? If people dont complain then how are things going to change exactly? Durst is going to have a good one night stand and suddenly he is going to fix this?

So yeah, I urge people to complain. CONSTANTLY, not just here, everywhere via emailing etc etc. If you people want things to change you have to work for it... it wont just "magically" fix itself.

Those who find this very irritating, I understand you, but please, this is much more serious than your annoyance when browsing the forum. This beautiful building that costed billions is getting utterly DESTROYED in the most unbelievable, ugly way possible. The building's significance as a landmark and what it actually stands for is BUTCHERED.

You have to DEAL with those complaints. Maybe through all this SOMETHING will actually happen to restore the building as it should be.

Well yes, but it would have been 1374 ft for you in any case, no?

And what is the reason why they changed the spire design?

I've updated my diagram with the latest progress I think 1WTC stands quite a chance to top out before 157 and 4WTC

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i50.************/34y2tr9.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 397 meters or 1303 feet out of 419 meters or 1374 feet
4WTC = Approximately 273 meters or 895 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 256 meters or 840 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 419 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Soon it will be reaching another significant milestone. As far as I'm concerned , the rooftop height should be a cause for 'celebration' and not the height of the spire. With all of the rancor and chaoss about the change in style and material used for the spire, it is useless. Besides if the top floor is all that is accesible to the public, then that is what should be recognized anyway.

Agreed, that is what I have been saying all along. It seems that almost everyone else, only cares about them counting that antennae as actual height by CTBUH standards

Reaching 417 meters, is what I have been waiting for, to finally see it up in the air like the Twin towers were.
