19th floor. Just over 300 feet is my guess.

1WTC is already above 220 meter. 4WTC may top out earlier (doubtful), it will never overtake 1WTC.

If 1WTC didn't exist, 150 Greenwich Street would be the tallest building in downtown Manhattan, until 2WTC and 3WTC tops out.

1WTC actually stole all attention to the 4WTC.. A couple of more floors and we should see it in the skyline..

floor count has changed! http://www.wtc.com/about/office-tower-4

Quote:
4 World Trade Center at 150 Greenwich Street will face directly onto the World Trade Center (WTC) Memorial Park from the west. Rising 977 feet from street level, it will be the fourth-tallest skyscraper on the WTC site. Designed by Maki and Associates, the 72-story tower is intended to assume a quiet but dignified presence at the site while also serving to enliven the immediate urban environment as part of the redevelopment efforts of downtown New York.

The podium of 4WTC consists of two retail levels below grade, ground floor, and three levels above grade. The remaining floors are set aside for commercial offices, totaling 2.3 million rentable square feet. One third of the office space is slated to become the new headquarters of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The tower portion of the building will accommodate office spaces in two distinctly shaped floor plates. The lower- and mid-rise sections, floors 7 through 46, will feature a typical floor plate size of 44,000 rentable square feet in the shape of a parallelogram echoing the configuration of the site. These floors will be served by two elevator banks, each equipped with eight cars and one elevator bank with six cars. The high-rise section of the tower, from floors 48 to 63, will feature a trapezoidal floor plate measuring 34,000 rentable square feet. The trapezoid will be shaped and fluted to open toward the tip of Manhattan and triangulated from the lower floors to face 1 World Trade Center. These floors will be served by two elevator banks, each with six cars. Both office floor plans contain a central core with a 45-foot span on the west side facing the memorial, as well as on the north and south. The east side has a 35-foot lease span. The project will also provide access to Wall Street and the central PATH terminal.
final height is 977ft!

According to wtc.com 4WTC will top out after 1WTC tops out: Spring 2012

This rare phenomenon occurs in Flickr, a bunch of photographers decide to take pictures of 1WTC only, having 4WTC just to their left. The good news is that the higher it get's, the more attention it will have.

It's a race.. 1WTC, 4WTC and Carnegie..All of them should rise 1 floor per week and Carnegie and 4WTC are about the same height (roof)..4WTC has 3 cranes and steel construction and Carnegie 1 crane and concrete...

You gotta love NY..

Careful, the date mentioned is refering to the ending of the installation of the curtain wall. As far as I know, there are no official sources saying the month or season in wich they are going to install the facade.

A mock-up of 150 Greenwich Street's curtain wall.

^That's just the lobby, BTW. The tower will use a different type of glass.

Thank you for the very helpful responses.

It's funny, where I'm from in London, having a tower constructed at this height is considered a big thing (i.e. The Shard). In New York it gets lost in the jungle. I love it.
