^The pics will never do justice to 1WTC height,especially the huge gap giving a sense of "small".

My trip to the WFC in 2010 (when 1 and 4 were not built) left me feeling speechless about the height of 7WTC, and I actually went later in the day and stood at its base, feeling absolutely dwarfed as I looked upwards. Even 1 liberty plaza stunned me. It just goes to show how massive and stunning 1WTC is. If you're as impressed with 7WTC as I was, 1WTC will be a total monster. Can't wait to visit it in August!

I live and have always lived in Nashville,and when I go to downtown and stand beneath the AT&T(Batman building),it always puts me in awe.I can't imagine what a building almost 3 time the height will do to me(Batman building is 617').

I'm the exact same way. When I see a building in a picture, I think, "Wow! That's pretty big!" But when I go see the building in real life and stand at its base, I am speechless. The real thing is a whole different game!

For some reason, I think it's that base that makes it seem shorter than what it is.

Anyways, more steel tommorow?

When the glass is finished it will bring the full height of 1WTC into much better focus.

Yeap hopefully. The perimeter columns steel should go up tomorrow and work on this floor should take about 2 or 3 weeks to finish before they can proceed to add the parapets.

That should occur in either the 1st or 2nd week of August. Hopefully topping out by August 13th and the concrete floor reaching the final floor by September 11, 2012.

What is the chance of everything external(glass/antenna) being finished on Sept 11 ?

There's approximately a 9 out of 11 chance that will happen.

There is no way it's going to take another month to top out. I'd say the end of this month the latest.

So I'll rather update my diagram once we'll top out. I don't wanna have inaccurate data in it

Btw, as to how many floors remain. No big floor remains however the cooling towers still remain to be built

You'd think so.. I really hope you're right, but I'm not all convinced it's gonna happen.

Your the same troll who said steel installation was to begin yesterday when it began last week. Your also the troll who edited wiki with that false rumor of 2300 days after construction. So Stop it.
