The 1170 is to the tip of the spires. The parapet, IIRC, is 1089ft.

There are rumors coming from 'insiders' that all the TG model cranes will be banned from NYC due to their age and the fact that Link Belt (manufacturer) is no longer around.

The supposed new rule will be no cranes older than 30 years.

(the crane that collapsed at the 7 train site was a manitowoc 4100 [old])

Mike Manella oversees all these projects for Tishman, and took time last week to chat about building One World Trade — slated to be the country’s tallest building — and the other projects.

WSJ: On 3 World Trade Center, you’re building the podium, which is seven stories, right?

Mr. Manella: We’re building the building that can stop at seven stores if necessary. It can continue on, and we’ve bought the project up to its roof.

WSJ: Meaning, you’ve ordered all the materials for the whole building?

Mr. Manella: We’ve bought all the contracts for the entire building. We are staging the materials based on our instructions from the client.

That's great news. With Tower 1 and 4 topping out soon, we need this site to have another growing skyscraper.

That still does not look to me like they are going to build it all the way to the top right now.

WTC is taller than I thought. When you go to see it is quite imposing, much more so than on the web cams. Also, I thought they would stop it at the fifth floor? It seems it is at about the 7th floor already.

Some pics from today:

You're welcome.

One thing I don't understand about this though is it appears to be only the core they are building. What about the actual structure around it? I thought they were going to have that structure made usable for retail even if they didn't build out the entire structure right away.

Is that not true or will we see a steel structure go up around this shortly?

Podium steel is scheduled to begin in May.

1. The WTC is still one big construction zone.
2. The country/world is still struggling in the aftermath of the recession.
3. There is a presidential election in November, companies don't know how the economy will handle it.
4. The site has experienced two major terrorist attacks.

Not to mention there are other projects around the city that are also looking for tenants. In short, there's a ton of competition for tenants. And only so many large tenants looking for space.

Hudson Yards, the WFC, 15 Penn Plaza, the list goes on.
