Whether the tip of an antenna counts in terms of unofficial height is another matter, but REAL height is simple...from ground floor to top of roof. If people wanted One World Trade to be 1776 feet, they should have built the roof height to that level. The end.
for the billionth time, IT LOOKS BETTER, it's not all about the height.

Then I completely respect your opinion. The old antennae did look much better.

I wonder, with the redesign of the antenna/spire, will there now be room enough for an outdoor observation platform on the roof?

Durst said on the news they were still planning on keeping the 1776 height, whatever that means.

Childs and the PA can work on a cheaper solution to cover the antenna, just because the radome is removed doesn't mean something else can't go over it.

the CTBUH and the WTC official site still list the tower as 1776 feet

PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE BACK TO 1776 feet 541 meters

Thank you

Is 419 meters the roof height?
I remember it was 417 meters,so they changed the roof height by 2 meters?
I dont care about the official height,but the more the roof height is,the higher it looks.

I know it's ridiculous that this forum has already jumped to conclusions about the spire. at least keep it at 1,776 (541 meters) until it's official on whatever height it is

I don't care about a possible change in height, but its redesign.

Kanto it is not official first 1 wtc antenna is still part of its original design not an add on, two 1 wtc antenna will not be broadcasting any singles 1 wtc communication platform ring will those are still criteria for Council on Tall Building to rule it antenna or spire and like it or not its there ruling that counts not are opinions, so how come skyscraper city is the only web site that is stating that 1 wtc is 1374 skyscraper city should be a website of facts not bias opinions.

The cut backs to this project is downright pathetic.

Really shows how far down USA has come.

In 1930, ESB was build in 1 year 2 months. And in 2012, it is taken over 7 years to get this building built with so much hassle.

I agree. Technically speaking this still a spire, even if there is some transmission equipment attached to it. It has been included the project from the beginning. And even though thing is ugly and haven't went through any artistic design process its still part of the former spire and thus imo should be counted.

Btw the number in the thread is changed because ctbuh excluded spire at some point, now they have included it again.

Btw2 The inside bit of the spire is slightly lover than the complete spire isn't it? After all one supposed to be inside the other.

Here it is. The new "spire" is definitively lover than original.
