1WTC needs company. At least 3WTC needs to be build in the not too distant future.

Those narrow vented glass panels really make a difference to this tower, remind me a bit of the original facade on the old towers

If you follow some of the other NYC threads on this site you will know that neither WT1 or ESB will be alone for long

Hey Otie or NewYorkSkyline117 do either of you or anyone else who has a GOOD guess/estimation when the North West vent cladding will be finished?

Even if the communication ring was accepted as part of the official height, it still would not be higher than 432 Park.... unless the ring is over 30 ft high?

Roof of 1 WTC is 1,368 ft vs. 432 Park Ave roof is 1,398 ft

The real roof king out of the mix between 1 wtc, and ,432 park will hopefully be the Nordstrom tower with it's 1,550 foot roof or even taller ,lets just cross your fingers.

Well those are just their parapet heights. 1 WTC is actually 1,334' 8" to the rooftop or 105th floor and 432 Park is about 1,365'. Either or it's still like a 30 foot difference. They really did **** up the top of this building though. No observation deck, nothing, just communication equipment. Oh well it's better than nothing I guess. The original Towers were way better. The only things I like about this Tower are the height and the glass, absolutely stunning.
