Obviously the numbers in that picture do not correspond to the tower numbers.

Thanks for the pics Threehundred, it puts the sites of the towers more into perspective for me.

I don't get why this thread was updated to being 108 floors when it won't be anywere near that in occupied floors. Most count the height to the highest occupied floor if it's not at the roof. Either way, the FT wouldn't be the WTB b/c the SWFC is almost topped out and the Burj Dubai is already 2/3 complete. The fact that it only has a roof that is 1,335 ft wouldn't even make it the tallest in the US with the Chicago Trump Tower, which is 1,362 ft to the roof, is almost halfway up. This puts being the tallest in the world and nation to rest.

Well actually if we're talking about roof height, not the height of the spire, Trump is only 1170.9 feet. And just who is claiming that the FT will be the WTB? Dude. Come on with the tirade.

A while ago when not everyone is familar with Burj Dubai or Shanghai World Financial Center or any project. They immediately assumed that Freedom Tower would be become world's tallest building without knowing the facts first.

Yeah exactly! "A long time ago"! No one is claiming such things now because everyone obviously knows that there are projects u/c around the world that will be taller.

He might be getting it confused with the statement from Ebola(i think) about 1WTC being the tallest strictly office building.
