Sure thing, here it is. Shanghai Tower is currently 516 meters or 1693 feet tall while the pinnacle of 1WTc is currently in a height of 520 meters or 1706 feet

Check out these amazing photos found in a Facebook World Trade Center page (Not WTC Progress)
Don't know if it has been posted... but I love this view!!

"View from the top of the Antenna, today. By Michael O'Reilly"


"The Section 15 of 13.4 tons, going up on the top of the antenna of One WTC"


"WTC Tridents in the 911 Memorial Museum Pavillion"

New York (CNN) -- Construction crews at the 16-acre World Trade Center site will raise the final two sections of a 408-foot spire to the top of One World Trade Center on Monday morning, making the building the tallest in the Western Hemisphere, according to the site's management.

Corner Stone

OK I posted this a while back and didn't get any answer to it. So here it is again, What ever happened to the corner stone that was placed at the foundation and then removed? There hasn't been any mention of this at all since they removed it so many years ago. Anyone have the answer? Thanks, Lance

I truly think this would have looked much better without the top steel mechanical and the spire and antenna.

It speaks a lot about hesitancy and wariness that the core is much shorter and a spire pokes up to 541m, this to prevent another 2001 situation repeat.

A nation hunkering down.

I would love it to climb to the top of the spire along the outside.

I think this tower is one of the most rendered tower on film history. Most of the
time when I saw a scene in NYC in near future, I always see this tower
beautifully poised in the background. For example, Oblivion(Tom Cruise momory),
Click(When Adam Sandler is in his daughter wedding party, there is this tower
in twins at the background). Anyway couldn't wait for this tower to be finished
and finally filled in the NYC skyline.

All the blue netting is gone. No more of it is left! I still remember when the blue netting first appeared....

And at this rate the glass seems like it will be complete sometime in may!
