this should be the easiest tower ever to judge. It is being built next to a tower which is 2.5 meters short of supertall. As soon as it passes WTC 4 its supertall height.

It is 2.29 miles from 3 WTC, 1/3 the height, and far skinnier.

I remember the first time I went up the original WTC (it was at dusk) I thought the Statue of Liberty looked like a candle floating on a swimming pool.

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since I've been here.

What is going on with 3WTC? Are they finished pouring concrete? How is the building going to become taller than 4WTC if they've stopped now?

thanks

They just finished the final set-back. They are now finishing the remaining core with a few more floors to go.

I wish more people referred to 4 WTC as the Predator building, lol. Kind of a fitting nickname.

The latest Earthcam updates show just how close 3 WTC is to topping out 4 WTC.
