I noticed that the core is still rising and from what I saw yesterday, it does seem that the diagram that was posted earlier was correct and the core will reach 1079' and the parapet 1168'.

The mystery continues haha. Anyway, if that happens to be true, this building would appear way taller if it was a parapet to 1168' vs the original spires to 1168'.

We can now also establish that the recent "Topping Out" ceremony was premature, the core continued to rise since then.

Yeah, it will probably be the same with Tower 2 because they say 1270' but that's just the roof, not the parapet, which is 1,340'. You can see they have finished the first mechanical floor and and now they are finishing the second mechanical floor, which will reach the roof. The core is probably over 1,060 feet or around there.

The "Topping Out" ceremony was probably planned months in advance and did not correlate to the actual TO because of unforeseen delays. That happened on a building my uncle was working on in NYC. They had a "Topping Out" ceremony and then poured fresh concrete the next day.

1 WTC is truly a work of art, it has a remarkable modern-contemporary design and I really like it. The glass is pristine.

This is great that the core is still rising. With the (presumed) parapet of 1168 this tower is going to appear much taller than 4 wtc. This adds to the spiral effect of the towers. I always thought 3 wtc should have been made taller to corrrelate more with building 2!

The jumping equipment and the concrete pump is off, the core is officially topped out!

The parapet will be ~1080 not 1168, that was the height of the spires which are no longer.

But the core already looks past 1,080' no?

On Silverstein Properties it's still listed at 1079 feet, but the core already looks that high when comparing it to the 978 foot 4 WTC. It is hard to tell however, so maybe the parapet will be at 1079 or at 1168 or maybe something in between.

It's 1030', maybe from some angles it looks taller though.
