I am wondering if anybody had a diagram or rendering of Tower 1v2 so that we can compare the current state of the building in height to the Finished version of the Tower. Thank you.

I wonder if the real purpose of the gaps in the cladding on the 20th floor is to make it easier to clad the base? Notice the cables sticking out to support the hanging platforms:

Wow! the tip of the cranes already look higher than American Express Tower... I guess One World TC will really surpass that tower before spring arrives!

I agree, I like this glass and facade better than that of WTC7.
Only two rows of windows installed, and it is already looking great

cladding looks amazing! Unbelievable, how at 190 odd meters, this thing still gets lost in the NYC skyline. Not for long.

Excellent point, Swiddle. Don't know if it's right, but it sure makes sense.
