looks like there's still confusion over the whole number of floors/stories thing

^Blame it on the PA.They label 23' floors as double floors(though I know some do have the Mezzanine floors).

A spandrel beam is the exterior beam that extends from column to column and marks the floor level between each floor. The triangular beams meet at the 105th floor. It is pretty much the same kind of scenario we saw when the office floors first started rising above the base where you would have columns that are straight and then started to taper as the building reached the 24th floor or around that area.

Maybe because there's only two columns.....? Why would that be the complete parapet, it's not even half of it

There's serious talk on SSP that the steel may have included the parapet and it is topped...

But I'm still sticking to my theory that it only includes half the parapet and there's one jump left.

I thought it wasn't going to be the tallest in the us anymore? Just a crappy antenna right?

That looks like a tripplecolumn. The top of 1WTC will be similar to a reversed bottom of the old Twins

Btw, I updated my diagram with the new top out info from Otie. Thank you Otie for making things clear

1WTC has finally topped out. I will quote Stanton Friedman and say this is the biggest story of the millenium
