The slope sides are just 15 feet away from each other.

Shouldn't this building have been topped out by now?

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i48.************/2yzlpmu.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.)

Approximately how long time does it take to make a jump?

It looks like there has been much delays? because I had to me that this would be topped out late April/or May

An idea/question about the WTC site:

I think most of us initially wanted to rebuild Twin Towers, though with a different design (otherwise it'd have been like we were looking at a ghost). So we are a bit disappointed that the Twins were not rebuilt, as well as the change in the new 1WTC, the spire/antenna fiasco, the delays, the shortened height of 2WTC and 3WTC, etc.

But overall, I do like the four new buildings. But what is stopping a future developer from building a fifth tower, an exact replica of the new 1WTC (though without the spire/antenna)? This would salvage the site, IMO. It would bring the Twins back, though with the preferable design of the new buildings, and would nullify any sour grapes about the change in height or design. Hypothetically, the building (which would probably be named 2WTC--with the new 2WTC therefore being renamed, as well), could be constructed either immediately north of 1WTC, next to 7WTC, or atop the performing arts center that will be built between 1WTC and 2WTC, or, right next to the North Tower fountain, to the east.

Other than bureaucracy, what is stopping this from happening in the future?

That's an awesome idea. The way I see it what is stopping it is bureaucracy, unwillingness on the side of the PA and Larry and people giving up hope that we could ever see Twins again.

Couldn't a lobbyist group start something of a movement for this, replete with designs and proposals, to be adopted by a future developer? This is above my pay-grade, but I've seen people post renderings of something similar on this website before. I wonder how it'd look. Personally, I think the "jammed-pack" look would work. The four new buildings, plus a fifth "Twin" next to 1WTC, would amplify the complex ten-fold.

Wow...seriously mods? You deleted the posts that tried to STOP the ridiculousness, and you left the ridiculous posts alone? Good job! Let's keep discussing the non-existent possibility of a twin of 1 WTC which can't fit anywhere on the site plan at all, and delete logical posts that explain why it won't happen. There was no justification for deleting my post at all.

So I'll re-post it:

This isn't happening. For real.

You clearly didn't even think all of this through before you posted. Where exactly is a twin of 1 WTC going to fit with your "jam-packed" proposal?



There's no room directly in front of 1 WTC, no room next to 7 WTC, and as far as I know, they're going to build the Performing Arts Center.

And you want to build a twin of 1 WTC on top of the museum? You do realize a building needs a foundation, right? Where is that gonna go?



Right, moving on. Your idea is unintelligent and unrealistic, please stop. Thanks. (and mods, if you found this sentence as good enough reason for deleting my post, then the sensitivity level is a bit too high)

If you are talking about me, all I did was post a picture of what it would like...
