Ah well, physically it'll still be 1776 feet tall. I can't wait until it tops out.

The 1776 figure is not likely going anywhere, so don't listen to the thread title, it was pure speculation that the building will be 1370 feet in the article.

The roof will top out, yes, the structure will top out shy of 1800 feet.

It will have a roof height of 1374 ft and a pinnacle height of 1782 ft. Also with my measurement system it has a architectural height of 1374 feet

Somehow everybody always forgets that the highest physical point was always 1782 or 1783 feet.

Now I am just used to a newer, 21 century building rising into the clouds, but there is still a sense of sadness and past reflecting in its facade. I guess even if you live nowhere near New York theres still some connection that everyone feels


I have / had a very close contact with them daily when my father worked there between 1987-1998, after 1998 they moved the company to California.

I have a lot of great memories from there. I learned to ride a bicycle without training wheels beneath the World Trade Center Plaza. My mom has a whole bunch of photos of me and dad. When dad supporting me behind the bike while I'm cycling around the sphire, many many laps. I have many memories from the WTC area. This timelaps I was their several times a week down at the WTC area

So I do miss my twins very very much and I will never be satisfied by what is being built there now. I was there on the WTC site in the New Year, 5 months ago and I sighed and even cried a little bit when I remembered back and saw myself as a young boy cycling around the sphire with dad running behind and mom sitting on the bench in front of the sphire. I want them back I will always have that feeling and I am not alone.
So now you all know why I am a Twin Tower Fan.
These brothers is/where the guardians of New York as my father told me after the first attack in february 1993. I have always loved that expression. I think many New Yorkers and Americans probably thinked that to?


I respect what is built there but I do not agree that this should be built there. Respect it yes accept it no, thats the difference.

SORRY EVERYBODY THIS IS WAY OFF TOPIC, and the moderator or I will probably take this away, I wanted to explain WHY

It's really not that difficult to post pictures from flickr, many more of us also post pictures...

And Tommy Boy...those are touching memories, but still, it's been almost 11 years since the tragedy. It really is about time to move on. Just because you have fond memories there, it doesn't mean you (or others like you) need to be crusading through this thread with your disapproval of the new WTC and what you think should be there instead. With all due respect, it's irrelevant. What's being built is final, and that's it.

See I had a feeling you had some background with them. Precious memories on sacred ground, especially kept remembered in photographs. Hopefully you will once again relive those cherished memories at this new beginning

Stay on topic guys.

No need for personal attacks or inane, off-topic discussions. We talk about the project as it is BEING BUILT here ...not fantasies or what 'could have been'!

What's with the change from 1368ft to 1374ft, doesnt that kill the meaning of the building a bit?

Unless Durst backtracks on the antenna, whatever symbolic height 1WTC was to have is history. It's an office tower like any other. Money talks and money has spoken.
