What have you been smoking? These towers are designed by worldclass architects. 1WTC is definately one of the best towers U/C right now!

Maybe you're more into funny skyscrapers with twelve colors and strange things coming out of the facade. Then you should go to the Dubai section, they have tons of those over there (along with tons of great ones of course )

RGZ is always down, HD Earthcam is on the Memorial, Live Earthcam is more on the 7WTC than on the 1WTC, and on WTCProgress cam we can see only east side of the tower...
HD Earthcam was in that direction for a few minutes then it went back to the old position

The base is only as tall as a 20 story building if it has unfeasibly low height floors.

Way back on the thread someone quoted the actual floor height (for the regular office floors) as 13ft 4in, which seeing as the base is abot 200ft high gives... nothing like 20. I think 10 is probably much closer as it includes mech floors which will be taller.

20 is just a number someone in marketing thought would be good to start the office floors at. If this had gone up core-first then we'd be able to count doorways to get a real floor count, but as it is the PA marketing floor number is all we've got.

Here's an amazing video of the new WTC. It's amazing how green lower Manhattan is becoming. West Street as seen in the video and below will be a new tree and flower-lined boulevard, as will West Street.

20 wasn't picked out of a hat. They're just measuring from the bottom of the building, which is 70 feet or so below ground level.

Great photos ! I think the new added steel was faster than the previous ones installed.

Yeah, I thought that too - but it's not the case according to the PA.

To quote from their site: http://www.panynj.gov/wtcprogress/q-...-tollner2.html

Quote:
The floor to ceiling height on floors 1 through 7 are larger than a typical building due to the large amount of heavy mechanical equipment being installed on these floors. Even though there are seven visible floors, when dividing the building's height (approximately 200 feet) by a typical floor height (10 feet), you get the equivalent of 20 floors. Moving forward, the ceiling heights will resemble a much more typical office building.

So they have used 200ft and a "typical" floor height of 10ft, but then the office floors will be "much more typical" at 13ft or so high.
