The glass is going up at a pretty good rate, at least on the west side.

Kanto, I really like how you chop off the building to its current height, it really helps me get a good idea of how tall it is. How do you know exactly where to chop it off though?

The cladding is pitch-perfect, but the slight taper of the building is somehow disturbing. It looks like an error rather than a design. I wish it wasn't there.

I really like your diagram updates!
It's really awesome to compare one building with the 4 WTC.
Makes fun!

From Spectre. He gave me a height sheet of 1WTC and here he said that 4WTC is approximately 600 feet tall, which is 182 meters. However he also said that 4 floors 'til trapezoid floors remain. This has caused some chaos since according to SSP diagrams 4 floors below trapezoid start should be arround 200 meters. So I just made a guess for chopping out 4WTC so it isn't precise, though 1WTC is precisely cut
