2 meters means a lot... place this thread in the supertall section and we'd get 1,700,000 hits instead of 700,000.

I know I mentioned it a couple of times, but that glass is just superb. A gigantic mirror in the heart of Lower Manhattan. I guess the ladies won't need their makeup mirror anymore.

Nobody will even notice if they add 2 meters.
It's not worth it.

I took this last night, very far away and 4 WTC glowed unusually bright, brighter than Tower 1. 30 miles out

^ It's impossible to tell the exact day of completion

late 2012, mid 2013 respectively, i'd say.
