From that angle, this tower will look taller than 7WTC even though they are the same height. It will top out at around the same height as the WFC Tower with the green pyramid crest - the tallest one, giving the west side of lower Manhattan's skyline an utterly massive and amazing addition. It's really starting to have an impact now. By the time all the glass is up, we'll be watching Freedom Tower starting to rise behind it. Even though, let us say, WTC Tower 4, a supertall, were built right now, from the west, the GS Global HQ would have much more of an impact on lower Manhattan's skyline.

I consider this tower the new 7WTC's twin since they are both the same height and about the same size are both green office skyscrapers. We might as well call this tower 6WTC. And what an impact she will have. Move aside BoA and NYTT, it will be GS's time to shine very soon!
