Finally..

Actually it's 480' 00'' (42nd floor) + 4 feet's for beam attachment..

Or 146,304 m..

That makes it 237th tallest building in new york..

The architect didn't wanted no longer ... it's an unfinished design, too many details, no solidity, no fresh look, just copying the s**t from the past and other countries, but it fits the time, peace.

The cladding will make the difference. Wait 2 or 3 month and then you can say whether you like or dislike the tower. At the moment your opinion rests upon renderings.

Which list did you use and where can I find it?



Some more fun facts:

1WTC is now roughly as tall as..

..the New Yorker Hotel, 1930 (143 m), once New York's largest hotel.

..the Strasbourg Cathedral, 1647 (142m), the world's tallest building from 1647 to 1874.

..the Great Pyramid of Giza, 2560 BC (146m, original height before erosion).

Nowhere..
There's no list for that..Unfortunately..

I calculated it by myself..Every floor is 13' 4'' so every 2 floors are 26' 8''..
A bit of math and you'll get it..

Great find btw..

oh sorry, my fault. I meant the list of the tallest buildings in New York. Or with other words: Why do you know that it's the 237th tallest building right now?

Skyscraperpage diagrams..

You can find them from tallest to shortest..So you just find building tall as 1WTC at the moment and calculate it to the tallest..

We could say the same thing about that so-called "music" of yours.

The only difference is....we'd be right!

And there's a lot more we can say about people who think using ad hominem arguments makes them look smart.
