Here is a diagram of the building. You can see what the podium levels will look like compared to the progress so far. (Sorry for the large size).

Depends on which street you judge it from. There is an elevation change from Church to Greenwich.

The podium on Church Street is 85 feet high. I have 4WTC 102 feet (31m) high from Church St. 127 feet (39m) from Greenwich.


* Don't know if you consider it a big deal, but the 45th floor (mechanical) is 691 ft 10", or 210.86m. You may want to round up it. Sorry if I'm nitpicking your work. I enjoy all your work on those progress diagrams.

They are doing mostly concrete work on the cores and 1st floor lobby. New steel will come when they're ready for it.

I'm back guys! Been a while, but here are some pictures I took today. Gorgeous weather, plus my birthday is on the 17th, so thought these would be a nice present for me and all of you!
