No extra height - it's regular floor spacing, you can see it on the picture at http://www.wtc.com/upload/media/phot...-%20-003-4.jpg

You can also see the position of the embedded plates for the steel beams south of the wall - the floor elevation will be the same outside the core.

Honestly this tower went from lightning speed to snails pace except for the core. What the hell is taking so long for steel and glass to go up?

This reminds me a little of the CITC building under construction in Philadelphia. They both have some similar design elements and both similar heights (the CITC will be slightly taller at 1127 feet). 3WTC is a little further along in the construction progress and I suspect it will be completed sooner.

They moved the north lift to the south side where it can climb the full height of the core.
