In the New York Times article from May 25th they say the core will have it's topping out ceremony in June and the steel should top out in October.

Don't get me wrong; I'd rather have that extra office floor (and more) than not, but I am kind of happy that they reduced the number of ugly mechanical floors atop the podium.

Hello. The smaller 3wtc is at the real dimensions ? Thank you

I'm not too sure that it's accurate based on some of the renderings that I've seen from the WTC website. I've tried counting cross-bracing as well but there is conflicting information on how many cross braces there are (and thus how tall the building would be). Even my edit below feels too tall (especially the crown).



And if we look at the southern setback today, it appears to be done growing, which means the building is shorter and may be more comparable to my edit? [Screenshot from Earthcam: http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/...cam=skyline_g]

Well, it still has not jumped. Maybe there is a problem after all.

If you look at the WTC leasing page, you'll see that there are 32 office floors above the mechanical floors, 16 office floors in the mid-section, and five at the top. This is confirmed by reports of the specific floors that Group M will be occupying.

Taken by me on 5.26.16. The cladding is really doing this justice. Just wish it could soar to its original height.

I like how 50 West Street contributes to 'the spiral effect' from this angle. Hopefully 2 WTC will be able to to significantly accentuate it up to 1 WTC.
