What the hell are you smoking? There's no other office building u/c that's taller. When topped in 2010, it will be the world's tallest office building. Yes, other office buildings may have higher floors, but that's why spires rock, and, to add, I'm certain that some of those taller office buildings will be in NY.

the smaller beam down at the bottomn could be part of the outside-walls!
-in my imagination it could look like this:




Those steel beams are the southern face of the tower. Its not the core.

The location where both towers were is not being built on. That's where the memorial is to be built. Freedom Tower is being built next to the footprint of tower 1.

I am not sure if anyone here already discussed that before... I have not hear anything about any tenant that might be interested to move in this Freedom Tower and another WTC buildings yet... Anyone knows about this?

I guess you got me there, cause I don't count the spire, I guess that makes me a little . I don't see why there are a bunch of people that don't like this building. I think it's very elegant and classy. I can't wait for everything to finish, so I can make my way up to NYC to see these beauties!

Okay I think I got this right now: there will only be 2 tower cranes in the core, the southern core crane is what we see now. The northern crane will be erected soon. The other tower cranes won't be in the core.

Are you saying purely office buildings?

I am not getting that statement either especially when the Shanghai WFC, which has more floors than the FT is already topped out.

What is your point? The SWFC has a freaking hotel in it and officially the FT has 1 more floor. In fact, the number of floors doesn't matter since the massing ends up at 1400' and the official height is still 1776'. Why you would even mention that building is beyond me.

First time visitor to this thread. I didn't realise that 1WTC was under construction. My wife and I will be making our first trip ever to NY in 18 months time. She knows I'm a skyscraper nut, and I can't wait to check out all the NY icons. I've always dreamt of walking around the canyon streets of NY.

I'll be honest with you... it's not that great. NYC is much nicer from above than at ground level.

you must have had your eyes closed. I guess you're being 'honest', but you're in the smallest minority Ive ever seen when you say that.

I think I am wrong with the previous picture

It looks like there was going to be four cranes like that, all of them in the core of the building:

So, this would be the first crane at FT and would be located here, in the southwestern corner of the core:

What do you think?

You're right. There will be two tower cranes in the core, and you got the first one positioned correctly. All of the other tower cranes will rise outside of the core.
