I am hearing a lot of noise about possible resumption of building process. Apparently there are some new tenants on the market for office space.

The deal with Group M has been finalized. So, 3WTC will resume vertical construction shortly.

Sadly, the deal has fallen through.

The building will stay capped.

Hopefully the local forumers haven't already staged a protest down at the complex.

Yea I just got back from down there. A miserable day outside with the rain and all but I think it was a good day. This scary looking dude named Justin Davidson & I were chanting "heck no, don't put shadows on da lawn" the whole afternoon and I'm happy to report, we had succeeded. You all can thank us for keeping it permanently capped.

That's true, and that one I declare wasn't funny either. After what we have gone thru to get these things done, we don't need any smart alecks, pulling stunts like that either.

Question: (Raises Hand)

The roof height of this tower will be 1170ft?? Does anyone know what the pinnacle height will be with the antennas?

The reason I ask is because over at SSP they have it listed 1170ft pinnacle and 1080ft roof.

I myself believe the roof height is 1170ft as that is what is listed on Silverstein's site.

175 Greenwich St.

I've been seeing those same heights aswell......

Not sure which ones to believe.

I also never knew the 4 antennas ontop of the building would act as beacons, the same as 1 WTC.

I might have read it wrong. The antenna probably will be lit up like 1 WTC.

I found that info on Roger's website. It's pretty outdated stuff, as it doesn't even show the redesign of the tower.

Yea, their website for this tower is outdated. They should put out new stuff for this tower since vertical construction will commence. lol.

I'm sure they will have the antennas light up like 1 WTC! at least I hope they will.

I believe that was part of the plan, so it most likely will happen. It definitely won't have a beacon, however.

I'm almost positive it's SSP that has it right. The redesign called for a height reduction to 1,080 roof height and 1,171 pinnacle height as far as I know.
