LOL @ someone referring to the master plan...

The Master plan included the spire to 1776 feet so clearly it's not that reliable, however the foundations are set for 2 and 3.

And at Tommy, if your speaking of the list of Diagrams for each cities on SSP, that only applies to the number of made diagrams of the buildings in each city, that doesn't account for every single building in the city, http://www.ctbuh.org/HighRiseInfo/Ta...B/Default.aspx.

Anyways can we just please get on topic, and actually talk about the building itself, and not height changes, which apparently every thread for a building in New York has been taken over by...

Thank you, I was trying to show him why NYC should care about great architecture, and not height. The only reason I see to build tall is to stand out, but 400 meters is definitely tall enough. This is such a great building architecturally, i hope that the demand is there so they can build this.

Let the guy imagine, heh?

So there's some sort of blackish grey tarp or paint(or something?) on the floor of 2WTC recently... anybody know what it is and what it's for?

IIRC, this is Larry's favorite of the towers, and he refuses to build anything then what is currently planned here.

2000' will never be approved at this location because of close proximity of airports so don't count on it.

It is good to see this description of WTC 2 still remains on Silverstein's website:

"2 World Trade Center

A sparkling glazed crystalline form and diamond-shaped summit will create a bold addition to the New York skyline. Designed by Foster and Partners, the 88-story 2 World Trade Center will be the second-tallest skyscraper in New York City. Located east of the proposed performing arts center and north of the WTC Transportation Hub, 2 WTC will rise to 1,349 feet and be topped by an 80-foot antenna."

Of course workers are still on site! They're preparing everything to deliver a stump.

Actually, 2 World Trade Center will be the third tallest tower in New York City.
Here is the list of current towers under construction:
  1. One World Trade Center: 541.3 m
  2. 432 Park Avenue: 420.3 m
  3. Two World Trade Center: 411.6 m
I love NY
