It's okay if you guys compare the old wtc with the new wtc. As long as it stays with the designer/technical facts and features. No political and terrorism discussions please.

There may have been cores on those levels, but there were no real floors like the rest of the building. It looks like, at least initially, they had an office or two in the core, locker rooms, the mail room, and some storage. All within the core. And I definitely don't know where you're getting 116 floors from.

Taken from the NIST report itself:

The lobby was pretty big I can't remember how many story the new one going to be. I just know the base is 200 feet. Is windows on the world going to be the last stop this time around.

That red steel just looks denser than normal steel, doesn't it? I wonder how much heavier, say, a linear foot of that stuff is compared to normal steel?

But those were considered floors anyway, as you can see.

You wrongly consider by "real floor" a "normal" office floor: a floor can actually have different sizes, shapes, configurations, usages, etc.

Very easy: there were 6 subbasement levels.

Being this is still the WTC, I hope they engineer the building so the core could be like a shelter just if someone retarted had a retarted idea like in '93 and 2001. If I worked in this building definitely if I worked on the higher stories I would keep a parachute in the supply room. I'm not trying to be funny or an *******. Just saying.

I'm so glad that this building is being built, and not on hold. Great Pictures, Great Progress!!!!!!!!!!

Great progress since last time I checked up on this thread. Slowly but surely rising. They have started working on the steel above the V columns. Good to see.

I believe that from all the wtc reconstruction projects that had been proposed in the past, this is the best. And im glad that its construction is going fast these days.

Personally i was in favor of rebuilding the towers as they were, but this project is very good also.

The first office floor in WTC1 being 20 isn't meaningless. They use 13' 4" just like the office floors, but they count from the lowest underground level to come up with 20. If you look at any floor number after 6, all the way to the roof, the number only makes sense if you figure it from the lowest level, not ground level.

Here can be seen one of the former 6-floor-tall lobbies:

WTC 1 Interest Is Increasing

I just checked the number of posts on this thread compared to the Burj Khalifa thread. Yesterday this thread had 30 posts and Burj Khalifa thread had 21 posts. Up until the last few days, the Burj Khalifa thread commonly had more than double the posts as WTC 1. It is another sign that the interest in this project is accelerating.

There is a truck ready to unload one of the '170 ton' nodes on the east side right now.
