^I've heard late this year/beginning of next year a lot of places. I think Feb 2012, about the same time as 1WTC

One a different note, 4WTC is the "fattest" of the four WTC towers yes? I know 1 is 200x200ft, but what are the dimensions of the other towers' bases?

Speaking of that building, it really gives you a sense of how massive 4 WTC is/will be!

Tower 1 is actually 205x205 (200 is only the column spans).
Tower 2 is 230x80 (roughly), but over 376 feet wide at the base.
Tower 3 is roughly 200x200.

I'm too lazy to do the algebra for Tower 4 & 7, but they're all pretty similar with 40,000 sqft floor plates.

Thanks STR. I knew you'd be able to help.

But Tower 2 is 80 feet!? EIGHTY? That's insane! Where exactly on the building is it 80ft?

(I'll just say I haven't seen a place with more good looking construction workers than I did at 4 WTC. I think I found a new hunting ground. :jester: :whip: )
