Is the south setback done rising? I tried comparing to released renders and comparing cross bracing... I saw some conflicting information. Trying to get an idea of how tall this tower will look, especially from the earth cam posted across the river in Jersey.

3 World Trade Center Reaches Supertall Territory

By Evan Bindelglass | New York YIMBY

The new World Trade Center is coming together. In March, the Santiago Calatrava-designed World Trade Center Transportation Hub opened. Liberty Park is due to open this summer. Now, we have news about one of the complex’s skyscrapers. 3 World Trade Center, located at 175 Greenwich Street, has reached supertall height.

A supertall is anything above 300 meters, or 984 feet, in height, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), which issues such determinations. Well, 3WTC has passed the 1,000-foot mark, on its way to a final height of 1,079 feet and 80 stories. As of Friday, the concrete had reached 1,001 feet, six inches and the steel was up to 732 feet.

Designed by architect Richard Rogers of the London-based firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the office building will encompass 2.8 million square feet of rentable space. There will be 150,000 square feet of retail across five stories..

As for the office space, some of the signed tenants are GroupM, which will occupy 700,000 square feet, and its child companies MEC and Mindshare. Catalyst and Xaxis will also lease space.

The building was to have risen to 1,168 feet, but two masts at the top were eliminated.

Larry Silverstein’s Silverstein Properties and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey are behind the project. It is expected to open in 2018.

4 World Trade Center and One World Trade Center have been open for sometime. The rebuilt 7 World Trade Center opened in 2006. The design for 2 World Trade Center had shifted from Norman Foster to Bjarke Ingels (Bjarke Ingels Group – BIG), with 21st Century Fox due to move in. That deal has fallen through, but the BIG design might still be what is built.

I've noticed something - The Potain crane on top of the core hasn't "jumped" in a while and now the core structure scaffolding is up to the very level, just about, of its cab. This seems odd. Have they by any chance encountered an issue with the crane, as it seems to me that they cannot go any higher until it does jump. Also I'm pretty sure that the core has not quite topped out as of yet.

"...but the BIG design might still be what is built."

I cringe every damn time.

No issue - the crane should jump tomorrow.

I can see the final core setback is prominent, but is there gonna be a steel setback anytime soon? When is the core gonna top out? And when is the steel gonna top out?
