With such a perfect location that you have it's almost an obligation to make a nice timelapse video by taking a picture every day or week

I hope this will give the same affect like the old world trade center. Those were the definition of massive, you could see them anywhere below midtown. I hope these will be the same.

I will give you the height in Floors, Feet, Meters and in Percentage of Completion in Height.

They are up to the 56th floor right now. The Tower is 666 Feet and 8 inches tall. The Tower in Meters is 203.1. In Terms of percentage from Street level to Roof its about 49.6 percent there in terms of Meterage and Footage. Well I hope I helped you out there.

Actually it is visible allready, looking at the photo look at the right of Tower 7 and you can actually see the North east section of the 53rd through the 56th floor of Tower 1. Its a small section of it from your distance but you can still see it.

I know I've heard there's absolutely no intentions, but just as a question:

The 1WTC is build exactly on the place of the old WTC with the spire? Or is it placed differently, and exactly where face to the old towers. If anyone can, just draw a red 1WTC on TowersNYC pic from 1976.
I'm still can't get over the fact they ain't building twins .
