Thanks for the info

Nothing is under construction there at the moment. But there are plans to build a Performing Arts Center in that spot once the rest of the towers are finished.

Is the paraphat being counted towards the height if the antenna is not?

The height of the building will remain 1776 feet. And I think you mean the communications ring not the parapet.

You are a broken record, always saying it is 1776 feet. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is a 1374 ft building. The thing atop 1 WTC is a antennae, so if they count it, it proves that their really is no difference between an antennae and a spire. If you think that 1 WTC is a taller building then the Shanghai WFC, or Sears tower, you are fooling yourself, that is not real or official height. Say they did count it, but Chicago also decides to add a 150 meter spire like 1 WTC, well by your standard, it is now a taller building because they add a piece of thin steel to the roof. Now do spires and antennae's add some visual height ? Sure, so it is a worthy measurement. So by pinnacle height, 1 WTC will have a height of 541m, and will be the 3rd tallest building in the world, and Sears will be the 4th tallest. That is why pinnacle, roof, and highest floor are what I go by, they are the only objective measurements.
