Wait, so is it 430 meters to the top of the ring, or 417 ?

Otie thank you very much for your diagram. Your diagrams of WTC are really the best.

^ Is that an official logo for One WTC, Otie? Is there even one?

According on Otie's diagram, the tower is only 1313 feet tall? I thought it was 1339 feet tall to the splices.

Will you be able to get onto the roof of 1WTC like you were from the original WTC? Also will there be a restaurant again?

It is, i think he may have forgotten to do that because the diagram isn't right.

I know, I'm pretty confused as well. People are saying we are at the 105th floor but I thought the columns erected were for 103M and 104. I guess we'll wait and see what the actual height is once the next perimeter steel is erected. People say the Tower will top out this Thursday but I somehow doubt that too because the weather could be an issue.

There will likely be a fast-casual restaurant as part of the observation deck. It's a lot less likely there will be a full service restaurant.

I can't remember what all the proposed restaurants were, but one of them was a Shake Shack, correct?

That would be really cool and delicious, but wouldn't come close at all to the Windows of the World.

This time lapse video is not exactly on topic (although it features segments of One world trade center both during the day and night) but it simply so beautiful and so magestic that I believe everyone should see it.

Enjoy and again sorry if this is not so ontopic, but it is just beautiful

Will the antenna/spire still have the ability to shine a ray of light out?

Currently yes.

You have no proof, and neither does he, so why don't we all shut up? Honestly I hope Otie's right because that means the tower will look even taller than it is now
