I don't like to give rough numbers, for me that's wrong info... All I know is that typical hotel and appartment floors are 12' 5" from slab to slab... The mechanical and other service floors make difficult to know the exact height.

Lol, it's between 115 and 130m tall i say. When it tops out, we will know for sure, that it is 306m tall. xD

Feel free to correct my estimation.

It's okay. Kanto knows all about wrong info. I'm sure he won't mind.

I've thought about 120 - 125 meters so I'll go with 125 meters since we don't have any precise info. I'll make the diagram tomorow

The first crane won't necessarily be needed to remove the second crane. The last remaining big crane up on a building is sometimes removed like this:

- Big crane lowers itself as much as possible and installs a medium size crane.
- Medium crane disassembles big crane.
- Medium crane assembles small crane.
- Small crane removes medium crane.
- Workers dismantle small crane and carry its parts down in a freight elevator or using a BMU.

I think that's how they did it on Burj Khalifa.

Here is my new NYC construction roof diagram now with 157 as well. It should be noted that the height of 4WTC and of 157 isn't 100% precise. If anybody has precise info about the heights of 157 or of 4WTC, please lemme know

[IMG]http://i55.************/2pqpduc.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 319 meters or 1047 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 208 meters or 682 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = Approximately 125 meters or 410 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Or "onefifty7"

One57 is an official name..

One World Trade Center is official too, but it's too long so people made it short as 1WTC..

One57 is short by itself..It doesn't need to be any shorter..

Kanto, the main lobby is located on 57th street, in case you didn┤t noticed its former name was "Carnegie 57", use "One57" and people won┤t confuse.
