As often as I see new pcitures of the construction site, I am surprised that the building looks so much smaller than it actually is. Hard to believe it has already passed the 150m-mark - in between all the other skyscrapers, it almost looks like a low-rise.

Is there anyone who knows when they will build the Greenwich street between The Memorial and Tower #2,3 and 4 ?

The tower pedestal flares out until it reaches the first office floor, so what are the dimensions of the first office floor?

I thought 1WTC looked small on the photos on this website, something the dimensions contradicted. After travelling to New York early September and seeing it with my own eyes I can confirm that this a monster and by far my favourite under-construction skyscraper at the moment.

I agree the building has a long way to go before we can see the beauty come out to live. But, it's going to be distinct in that location after seeing so many imposing buildings around it.

I know it's off topic, but I live in the green tower block in the middle of this picture. It's so funny to see it from the tower rather than the other way round!
