View from (almost?) all angles:
The tower was redesigned some time ago, that diagram at wtc.com doesn't show what the true thing is going to come.

Oh. I'm sorry about that. I didn't notice that the picture was incorrect.

I hope 4 WTC reaches the setback soon. I would expect the trapezoid floors to go slightly faster since they are smaller. Also, is there a thread for the VSC?

Hey folks, I've got a small question. Will the shape of the core change for the trapezoid floors or will it remain the same as now?

From yesterday, October 2, 2011:
I gotta say, the glass on 4WTC is phenomenal! I think it looks a bit better than 7WTC, though 7WTC's base cladding is sick!

Hey Steveve, thanks for the pics and welcome to SSC. Your pics are awesome

Btw, I'm already working on my new diagram that will include a "ghost" building above the parts that represent the actual construction status. I only need to get a height estimate on 157 and it's finished

pretty soon Carlos should have this visible from his place.

Also, Ken from Jersey gets very good shots.

So now we're at aproximately at 208 meters or 682 feet, right?

Btw, here is my NYC construction roof diagram. It's incomplete because I dunno how tall 157 is. Also, it should be noted that the height of 4WTC again isn't 100% precise. If anybody has info about the heights of 157 or 4WTC, please lemme know

[IMG]http://i51.************/efm77k.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 319 meters or 1047 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 208 meters or 682 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Totally awesome that 3 out of the 4 tallest buildings in NYC are now under construction and if you count WTC 2 and 3 it is 5 out of 6.

Will they stall at the set back level for a while or will they continue on immediately as with the full size floors? Hope it doesn't delay it too much. I want that Liberty Place building passed ASAP.
