Hahaha,yeah 1WTC is taller than the North tower by 6 feet and the south by 12 feet.I didn't mind the size error on the diagram,it was very cool nonetheless.

Glass should be complete by mid November(earliest October),mast installation should be a third of the way up(that is if you take into account PANYNJ predictions).You're going to see a fairly completed 1WTC,except for the mast.

@Chibears
Personally I would go in Oct. 2013. You'd get the views from 1WTC, the full open plaza, and the museum with less of a wait. Also, from 1WTC you'd be able to see some cool angles of 3WTC's (and maybe 2's) construction.

I'm going to NYC in August so I'll proably get some pictures of the topping out (hopefully!!!)

I cant wait THAT long, no but really, I am going this year to see the construction, then probably going to go back sometime between 2014 and 2017 to see a complete 1WTC, 3WTC, 4WTC and I would HOPE a somewhat constructed 2WTC.

Do you mean 1 WTC, & 4 WTC? or do you mean the original 1 WTC, and the current 1 WTC.......

Why have the mods changed the height back to 1776 feet? Have they scrapped the idea of using an antenna instead of spire?

I would look for the answer but I have went back over a dozen pages and found nothing.
Thanks

Nope, the antenna is what will be built. The mods probably just decided to wait for a new official release before they change the height which is set according to the previous official release (which is now invalid)

And it makes clear that the massive gap between 1WTC and 4WTC has to be closed as soon as possible

Do all buildings have to have the same glass cladding?

Well if the PA, as said before, by yours truly, would pull its head out of its collective ass, quit being so goddamn greedy, and do what Mr. Silverstein wants, and build them anyway and accept the risk that comes with, maybe we would have results! But no, they're just too ******* busy worrying about that risk, and we get this ******* delay bullshit! That is what the problem with the country is today. The almighty$$$$$$$$$$. That's right the bottom line. Oh and a little more of this too! #@$%&*!!!!!!!!!!! I've had it with this beaureaucratic bullshit! Maybe this won't halp the cause, but the need to vent this venom is necessary! So @$#%&*"!!!! all of it!!!!!

Tower 4 has a less blue cladding and the glass is much thicker to create a smoother reflection. Because of its position next to the memorials, it needs to be more "invisible."
