Yea the core looks to be ~1080'. If the parapet extends beyond that this thing could end up ~1170', that would be awesome.

Hopefully the figure for 2WTC doesn't count the parapet either. I keep reading both 1,270' and 1,330' as the final height.

I started to appreciate Chicago a lot because of its subtle architecture after some of the newer towers in New York get constructed, but when I look at that render from ThomasK2001 on the top of this page, I realize I actually appreciate the architectural diversity.

Yes you may be the only one.
You've obviously never been to NY if you think the East River is 'narrow'. Those bridges are long AF

I fly to NY monthly...and i travel the all world since i was a kid;in the Manhattan Bridge area the river is not 2000 feet;it looks narrow TO ME.
Moreover supertalls on a shore are unsightly to me,especially next to a landmarked bridge!
...Anyway,seems like you enjoy contradicting me,as you did in other posts:please,take a nap in your nasty chair and give me a break!

I get your point, with their proportions they seem uncommon next to the Manhattan Bridge.

It's not even remotely personal, I have no idea who you are, nor do I care.
Personal opinions may differ, to me the East River always seemed very wide. It actually is 2000 feet between the shorelines at the narrowest point under the Brooklyn Bridge, between the piers goes down to ~1500.
That chair is just a photo I took on the street. My real chairs are terrific.

What are the three huge towers that appear to the right of the picture?

Left-to-right, it's 80 South Street (which probably will be a residential and not quite so bulky, but looks likely to rise over 1400 ft. to the roof), One Manhattan Square (currently U/C on the site of the Pathmark by the Manhattan Bridge), and its neighbor 247 Cherry (a new JDS/SHoP supertall).

Thanks! Gosh it's hard to keep up with all the projects being proposed/built in NYC

This building definately went up fast. I remember when it was nothing more than a stump, which probably would have stayed that way until Group M came along.

Real shame what the tower's design went through. Rode across the Williamsburg bridge today, and the glass is top notch.

It sure did ! It topped out like in a little over a year or so after they resumed construction... Nice job ! Congratulations NYC and the WTC-site. A milestone longtime coming..

I only hope the same for WTC 2 too.. (..and a decent design for it)


P.S. Or was it two or so years after resuming..? Well it feels like one.

It looks a little cheesy, in my opinion; those buildings don't really fit there. What New York needs is a nice round dome (O2) or Pyramid, to give the city a good edge or curve.
