Most likely no. Crown element + mechanical floors could bring this tower over 1,000 feet. My guess is ~1,020ft.

Excavation continues.









Steel parts to connect platform with the bedrock.





First concrete for the tower. Also notice the location of steel part from picture above.

Nice! Do you know what the final height will be? DOB filings state 995', but it could be taller.

Hey guys, I think I've been staring at this construction render for too long, because I can't tell if this is a huge open-air atrium in the side of the South Tower, or a wonky reflection of the North Tower:

It would be an odd place for an atrium, I would guess that it's just an odd reflection.

That's pretty weird. It looks more like a reflection toward the bottom and more like an atrium near the top? I'm guessing it's a reflection though.

I'm very interested to see how the towers will be built on top of parts of the platform. How will the platform be used as part of the structural base of each tower?

From my understanding, it won't. Aren't all the buildings anchored in bedrock in one way or another?

Bingo. The platform is in the middle and all these towers rest on the sides that aren't over the platform.
