Is the green thing on top for real? Or are you just messing around?

just out of interest, how close will the projected T/O of this be to T/O of 1WTC? Obviously its a long way behind 1WTC in terms of height at the moment but its also over 100m shorter in total height (not counting 1WTC spire).

cheers

Are you kidding? Of course is a joke.

Alright, now I know the Woolworth building is either the building on the left or right in this picture. Which one is it?

Most Excellent!

STR, do you have a view of the north side (without 3WTC in the way)? I'm interested to know if the funky X's will be visible:

They won't be visible from the outside. That particular part of the building will be covered with louvers and the glass will be highly reflective.

This might be slightly O/T, but since the floor count has been confirmed to be 72, doesn't this basically confirm 2's and 3's floor counts as 88 and 80 now, respectively?

STR's renderings never cease to amaze me

And the progress on this thing is amazing

Can't believe you guys have been following up the building progress since 2008. And it's now 77 pages of threads!
