Looks like after they complete the current floors and add 4 new ones 1 WTC will be the tallest building in the vicinity. Is that correct?

If so, by the end of March it will have surpassed everything around it unless there are weather delays. It should also get much more visible from places like the Jersey Turnpike.

Finaly some good progress, height! Soon they will beat World Trade Centre 7!
It's odd that the twin towers were built before WTC 7, but now this time they built WTC 7 first!

As of yesterday, 1 WTC has surpassed the HSBC building and has only 11 more to go before it is Lower Manhattan's tallest.

Here is the checklist to follow in the next few months:

That would be the 72nd floor where all 8 sides are 89 feet. They just started with the 57th and 58th floors now so roughly 14 more weeks.

Hi all.

For example, Trump Tower in Chicago has a less swaying than towers of equal size built decades ago. So that it is almost imperceptible. Something that helps when you are selling the penthouse since not many people like living in a place that does not "seem" stable.

Anyways, your correction was needed and appreciated
Hi roman.
NP man.
I shoulda picked up on your implication ...
Glad to see we're on the same page.

They're pouring about half (in hight) of the protection wall on the east side. There are openings in the lobby floor for escalators there so it won't affect access.

Hey, Carlos V, is that blue building across the river your house? I'm guessing from your pictures POV that that's your building...Lucky. Invite for coffee someday? lol

Anyways, I know this is a stupid question to all you users that are current with this project but I don't have the time to look through all the pages to find the answer. How come there is sections of floor numbers that dont exist. Shouldn't from the lobby to the 1st office floor have floors in between? Or are they just assuming those are the floor numbers because that's the typical height for those floor in another building. Thank You

they use the actual height from a point and estimate a floor number i guess. And that isnt Carlo's house, his is in LIC a few miles north, that bldg u mentioned is in Brooklyn, i guess Williamsbourgh area.
