Their capping it for now at something like nine stories. I would think though that within the next few years they will start making progress on T2 and T3. This site is not just any construction site, it a national one. They are going to want to complete it as soon as possible. And with supertalls now looking to be popping up all over the city, it will be hard to explain why WTC should remain stagnant.

Tower 3 is either going to be capped bewteen 7 to 20 stories or continue. No one knows. Based on the news that 27 thousand tons, it probably will be built.

Damn, what a pity! Such a nice historical pier.

By what did they intend to replace it? No modernist crap but a faithful reconstruction, hopefully...

Why are you so against modernism? This old pier design is a tacky replica of an old pier and contains a trashy mall for tourists. Sorry for you, but the new pier shopping center will be a purely modernist structure of glass and steel.

Agreed. It's like he works for UNESCO or something. If anything built before 1950 gets torn down, he's always making a fuss.

That pier isn't historic, it was built in the 1980s.

Why do I have a feeling this developer who has big plan for that pier, set that pier on fire to save demolish cost or get insurance money? It looks fishy to me.

I would like to update my diagram so at what height are we now? Is this new perimeter steel only for the 105th floor or is it for the parapet too?

I doubt it's for the parapet. There would have been a topping ceremony if so.

I believe it's for both the 105th floor and parapet. My guess is there about 1350 feet high right now. The 105th floor (really just the ceiling/roof for the building) is 1334 feet. The parapet is about 35 feet tall. I'm thinking they're about halfway up the parapet now. Just a guess though.

Those columns are about 40feet.
So were about 1,353.
That's unconfirmed, just my early estimate.
