Actually, most of the references NYGuy posted pointed toward the lower height, and I can't figure out why he insists on keeping that 1429' figure up there. It would screw up the whole idea of the site plan to have the tip of WTC2 that much taller than WTC1's roof.

1429 is hardly "much taller" than WTC's roof at all, in fact it's barely taller, and that's not the roof of the tower either, it's the pinnacle, 1WTC's pinnacle is 1776, significantly higher than 1429, so it wouldn't matter. if WTC2's roof were 1350 it would still be lower than tower 1


IDK, even though the official site says that, I feel like we definitely have to wait for more evidence.

Is this a rail track on the NW-corner of 2wtc - or something for cars?

No, this will be the corridor that connects the subway hub with the WTC1.

^If you are talking about the curving ramp in the lower portion of the above picture, I believe it is part of the delivery access ramp that leads to 1WTC. It will start way back at the vehicle security center.

1429 was a number invented by NYGuy at SSP. Ignore it.

How come SSC changed the height for tower 4 to 977 but not the other two when the height changes came from the same source?

The official site does state that tower 3 at least will be 1170 feet high

If I'm not mistaken 1170 is height of tower 3 roof.

I wouldn't know, since I'm not a mod here. However, until there's more information on Tower 3, I think it's smart not to go overboard. Tower 4 wasn't a big jump, just 2 feet that were probably rounded off previously.
