Love those last pictures. I always thought it was going to appear way shorter looking at revised renderings after the height cuts. I'm glad to see with a different perspective that this tower has a pretty strong presence on the skyline.

Any guess on what the current height is? For me it looks well past the stated 329 meters

I know, the core seems to have grown since the "topping out" ceremony. Maybe the parapet will be higher than 1080 after all? Who knows?

It's a great addition nonetheless...

Seems like the cladding is hitting it's stride now......5 rows of office glass complete, and a sixth row started.

It seems it's already overcome the former One Chase Manhattan Plaza.

That happened a long time ago. It's well taller now, by about ~250 feet or so.

It's already the tallest building in lower manhattan after 1WTC.

It's the perspective of the picture. 3 and 4 WTC are closer to the viewer. Look at the picture LT H Caine just posted where they are further from the viewer and it doesn't look 40%.

This tower does look about 100 feet taller than 4 WTC though which puts it closest to 1080.

It means that lacks only the 4WTC to surpass.

This impressive speed. Very soon it will be the 8th supertall in the city.

Its impressive. But I think the final effect depends on the last towers.

It's funny how they tend to get a crane stuck. This time it is the Northeast crane :-)

Already passed 4WTC as well, at least a month ago I believe.
