This looks like what we've been waiting for. You can clearly see the shape of that inset wall.

The new steel is for floors 47 & 48. It's difficult to determine the current height of steel since there are multiple starting points:
  • PANYNJ datum (the most accurate): Elevation 1,042'-8"
  • 1st Floor: If you start measuring from the first floor (El. 324'-3), you'll have 718'-5"
  • Lowest-open-air entrance (CTBUH will use this as official starting point): The office lobby entrance located at Greenwich Street is +/- 10' below the first floor, so if you start counting from here, you'll get something like 728'.

*All measurements not including column splices, add an extra 4' if you wanna include them.

As for surpassing 7WTC, 7 is 750' above its first floor, next jump will surely surpass 7.

It's a monster in person, especially when you walk up to it thinking it's merely #4.

By itself it would look massive in all pics. It just that 1WTC makes it look smaller than it really it. Im sure though when you see it in person it looks big.

Looking great, just to think this is only 8m shorter then 'One57' but it looks so small compared to the rest of the WTC, I think we are going to get a shock at how massive WTC3 and 2 are going to look!
