They could always say 1776'*, the most famous asterisk since Roger Maris!

Imagine the tower like this, with all the other towers completed too. That would be a sight to behold.

Also 100th post!!

Oy vey...


Btw, concerning the top: 1WTC needs a spire. But I prefer the initial design much over the latest one. Why the heck did they change it?

Maintenance costs

Btw, 1WTC looks so much better with a flat roof without the ring and spire/antenna. If only they would build it like that

a flat roof with no broadcasting equipment or antenna to generate broadcast revenue? doesn't sound like Durst!

Even if they build the antenna at least they could build it without that hideous ring. They should build a simple good old fashioned antenna like the one on the North Tower or on ESB

Awesome news I've updated my diagram with the latest progress

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i45.************/2vv0wsw.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 410 meters or 1345 feet out of 419 meters or 1374 feet
4WTC = Approximately 286 meters or 937 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 268 meters or 878 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.)

I think it will take maximally 2 or 2 and a half weeks until it makes its last jump to 419 meters, topping out
