it will be the tallest building and i think it will overtake the CN tower to become the tallest free standing structure in north america and thus become the tallest building in the western world

Not withstanding, the spire on the top, it will be the same height as the original twins, give or take a little, so the answer to that would be no. That title will, just like before, belong to the Sears/Willis, or whatever it is nowadays called, in Chicago.

The CN tower is 1815 feet in height and One World Trade Center will be 1776 feet in height so it will not be taller than the CN tower.

Yes, that's what I thought. Since it's the same height at the twins, it can't be the tallest, because the twins never held that title when they were around.
