wow, since when did Amsterdam get a Supertall?

Nice try guys on the April fools, though it was feeble. Feels sorry for the guy who's going to rename them back. We should carry out an backlash and post on topics from pg 3-4. Make life hell for the person renaming the topic

Also I'm wondering what is the current height of the tower is?

Too much 1st of April. You should consider to do the same the 28th of December, like Spain and Southamerica. And in Spain we would have to make jokes today. Everybody would be really shocked!

Now we're talking! I was wondering about this when I saw that enormous ship carrying the first 20 floors of the WTC last night trough the canals of Amsterdam.

Come to think of it, didn't one of the WTC1 designs have windmills in the top?

Sooo, here's some updates on 1WTC: the Port Authority has released their 4th quarter report, even though they've already passed the 1st quarter mark for this year. Oh well, better late than never.

The delay was ridiculous, but judging by Chris Ward's cover letter I'm guessing they delayed the report until they had a settlement with Silverstein Properties.

EDIT: I found this comparison from the 4Q 2009 Report particularly striking:

^Welcome to the forum, but there are threads elsewhere which would be more appropriate for politics not directly related to the construction of this tower.
