Can anyone give me a good answer on the two following questions:
1) Why just 105 floors? not 110 like the old WTC 1 and 2, I know this building has a large and tall base, but so had the old ones.
2) Why not an outdoor observation deck like WTC 2, south tower had?

Anyone know the record amount of pages for a thread on this forum? I can't think of any other building as significant as this one in the past decade (significant culturally etc.)

Great progress, I can't wait to see all the WTC towers above street level in the near future.

It's 108 floors and I guest there's no outdoor observation deck because they don't want people jumping off the building.

Probably the highest building in the world has the forum record. With around 1600 pages or so? (Burj Khalifa i'm probing for)


The glass is getting along quite well... although the past few weeks the glass hasn't risen that fast due to weather and planning circumstances they are projected to start glazing again at the first winter free days that are upcoming.

The only thing that is bothering my thoughts is that it looks like they are going to start with glazing the Lobby/concrete foot/bottom first five floors within a few months maybe sooner. If you look at the white attachment frames that are dotted around the there and therefore the explanation of the missing windows in the first row of glazing. (which functions as a sort of access room to hoist the glass panels in place)
So the thing is, are they waiting to with installing more glass panels because otherwise they can't hoist the missing windows in when the bottom is fully glazed? or are they still waiting to install more security essential elements in that bottom five floors before glazing it?

Wouldn't it be better to open a fresh new thread? This one has become too big.
