This will take it to the 69th floor. Just shy of 900 feet (895 ft to the column splice).

I've updated my diagram with the latest progress

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i48.************/2aez1pf.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 389 meters or 1277 feet out of 419 meters or 1374 feet
4WTC = Approximately 273 meters or 895 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 248 meters or 815 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 419 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Thanks for that update! On the next one, could you make the buildings under construction have a facade progress thing? Where you show the spots where the facades have been completed on the bottom and have the top portions only be the steel skeletons?

I hope that you understand what I mean, but anyways, thanks!

Great pics! Cladding going up quickly last week..

http://www.lowermanhattan.info/const...wer_76774.aspx

*The following information was last updated on May 11, 2012.

Steel is now above floor 68
Concrete is being poured above floor 62
Curtain wall installation began in late April 2011 and is now above floor 49

So 4 floors = 2 jumps left?

It's funny how quickly and quietly 4WTC is going up, because all of the focus is on 1WTC. I feel this deserves attention to, its a beautiful building and is going to open on the main site too next year...just my opinion!
