Word has came that 4 World Trade Center will top out next Monday.

It's also said that Tower 1 will top out Tuesday or Wednesday,but i doubt it.
Especially since it's ceremony is scheduled for July 4.

That is awesome! I knew Tower 4 would top out first they were and are moving amazingly quick on it...however I do agree with you about Tower 1 but hey who knows, maybe they will surprise us(LOL) we can all dream...

At roof level the floorplate is half the size of the original WTC 1. Almost like if you got on top of the old tower and drew a point at the middle of each side then sliced off the corners back to the points of each ground level....or in this case about level 20 ?

Their is just 12 days until July 4 unless, the next jump is 50 feet iam sure topping off well be at 1,334 no way they will have enough time to do the roof and the parapet, but that just my opinion.

The next jump isn't 50 feet.
The parapet has a separate jump.
As we seen in tower 4 , your right, they can get the roof and parapet done.

Do you guys really think topping-off will be July 4? Think of what they will have to pay the trades for overtime to work on that holiday.

They don't have to be completely done. If even one of the roof beams is in place it can be considered topped out structurally.

I wouldn't think that the communications parapet ring is considered architecturally structural.

I myself have never counted the ring.

But whatever.

No, the building height right now is 1,313 feet. The next jump takes us to 1,334 which is the roof. The Parapet is the final jump.
