It would help if they released an elevation plan, this way we could know the exact height of the Tower. If the parapet extends 25 or 30 feet above the core, that will put it around 1,100 feet, taller than the 1,079' figure since the core is about 90 feet taller than Tower 4's roof.

The tower appears taller from the east, which is evident in photos. The reason for this is because 3 is actually set more east compared to 4

I hope Newark will get in on the skyscraper boom. Development there is strong, but we've yet to see a truly solid 200m+ proposal.

This building has got to be the worst example of neutering I have seen! It's really a shame, but I do like the parapets, the zig zag pattern going up, and the high quality glass.

Have they reached the top of the steel? I can't see any splice plates on the tops of the newest columns they just put up.

Seeing those pics reminds me how much we need 2 WTC (either version) to fill that gap.
