Im sure we will see galvanized or painted members in the parapet.

Topping out beam will obviously be white, complete with flag and tree

I've updated my diagram with the latest progress

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i50.************/5plpwo.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 410 meters or 1345 feet out of 419 meters or 1374 feet
4WTC = Approximately 294 meters or 964 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 275 meters or 902 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.)

Funny fact, atm 4WTC is the third tallest building in NYC. A place it will soon loose because of 157

This sucker is topping out very soon.

No Chris is right, it starts at 72M. Anyways, WHAT IS A PARAPET?! I though it was an incline in the roof but apparently it's a surrounding wall or something..?

A crown has an incline, a parapet is 90 degrees.

50 feet? It's 13 feet and 29 feet

Btw, a parapet is a visual cover of mechanical space and equipment like the cooling HVAC towers, water towers, window cleaning equipment and similar stuff

Okay, so it's like a wall that rises from the edge of the roof and surrounds the perimeter? like an opaque balcony almost

Right. It is a clad wall, that looks like the rest of the building, only difference is what is behind it

A parapet is a wall-like structure that rises above the roof.
It will cover all mechanical items like cooling towers, etc.

250W55th is topped out already, but a diagram for 1715 Broadway would be neat
