Pathetic... good thing taller buildings are on the way. I wonder if Obama will say anything about it? I doubt he knows.

It's good to see the tower come close to completion though.

BTW, it's not topping out today, Obama is just signing the topping out beam, the media is wrong like always.

Yeah it's not supposed to actually top out until around July 4th. There are still a couple floors plus the parapet.

6 or 8 months required to finish interior work of building, the plaza surrounding the building, and cladding of the base.

So it could be Late 2013 or Early 2014.

No way this building is opening in Early 2013.
This is inaccurate.
The spire is already constructed and ready to be installed.
Glass is moving fast, so i doubt that in December it will be complete.
Their are no exact dates for this site, maybe July 4, topping out is right. But this is inaccurate

This is so far off. First of all, concrete flooring is already at floor 100. You're saying it will take more than 3 months to do the other 4 floors. That's about 1 floor per 3 weeks. Second of all, Cladding is going extremely quickly. Glass cladding should reach the top by mid-september at this rate. And third of all, it's probably not going to take 2 years to open the building up, It will probably be opened in mid 2013. Early 2014 is way off.

Here are my predictions:

7/4/12 Topping out
8/3/12 Concrete flooring reaches top
9/16/12 Cladding reaches top
10/2/12 Spire is completed and building's height is 1776 ft
Mid-Late 2013 Building opens up

I am fine with what we are getting, but I wouldn't say it is impressive. It's a 417m building with a 400 ft antennae that is almost 1/3 of the actual building's height. It is a very nice design, but it isn't outstanding.

Don't get me wrong, I like this tower, but considering the importance of this tower, the design could have been better, and definitely more cutting edge

Even this, would have been better, if the building was filled in at the top. It is a more unique design, and hasn't been done much around the world, compared to the design they built which has a few near replicas

key words, "if it was filled to the top"

If it was, then yes that would have been amazing, but it wasn't, so it looked horrible and empty, almost like a ghost building, showing how scared we were at the time to build tall.

I was thrilled when the current design came out, just a solid building the size of the twins

^The old design would of been fine had it been filled out, which would not have happened. The other wtc buildings in that render are disgusting.

The only way 1 wtc is not impressive in size is if you live in Dubai, other then that in my opinion 1 wtc is impressive in size remember 1 wtc when competed will be the third tallest building in the world by pinnacle, although not for long unfortunately.
