I don't think Trunp Tower will be finished first but it could be close. I don't see any question about it, this building will definitely be finished before Freedom Tower. Freedom Tower is definitely one of the slowest building ever built.

This is all a bit off topic, but in any case, The Freedom Tower should be finished first. Because of the site it's on, the Freedom Tower has had a hugely complex foundation to build. But now that the foundation is coming to completion and the Tower is approaching street level, there will no longer be that extra barrier to progress, and as such, the building will proceed at a normal pace for a building of its size.

Too bad for NO OBSERVATION

I'll have to find a way to make friends with the person who will own the top floor or even better find a way to earn enough money that I'll be able to afford that floor.

Well, 1000ft or 2000ft doesn't really matter, in both cases you can't see the top from inside your house and the shadow is the same.

Yes, it will really be something. I happened to think of something...if anyone were to drop something from the tower, wouldn't be pretty hazardous to people living in those houses? An object dropped from 1500 feet would probably go thru the roof!!

What? The windows up there cant be opened. And who would throw down their 48 inch TV anyway, or a grand piano for that matter.
