The mast atop the North Tower under construction. The original antenna can be seen on the left.
Thanks for the very informative response!

1WTC went from the 6th tallest building in the world, to now the 5th by surpassing the Shanghai World Financial Center's 1614ft earlier today.

Exact height of roof of the Nordstrom Tower is unknown, as far as we know the last occupied floor is 1,550 ft ,with the mechanical floors maybe will hit 1,640 to 1,740, but most likely will not pass 1 wtc pinnacle height.

Does everyone believe that 1WTC is the height limit for the foreseeable future in NYC? I'm curious since I don't live there, and I see all these new towers in the pipeline.

Also, is it the roof height or spire height that is the limit?

I've never heard of a height limit in NYC, if so it's not the roof height because there is already a tower rising higher as we speak. It's jus not profitable to build a megatall.

I was thinking it might be a psyche thing .... "If you go taller then 1WTC, you're being disrespectful" ... that sort of thing.
