NYC is the king of skyscrapers and architecture in general. Its jewel-like, gigantic skylines signify its status as the financial capital of the world.

btw, what's the roof hight now? I would guess something around 150-160 Metres.
1WTC started in 2006, this building started last year. This building is much faster.

That's much better than a view of a park.
Well, that's up to the women...If you have bad luck, you look into the bathroom of a big fat wale-women

@kingsc: Of course, One WTC started earlier than ONE57, but its construction is more expensive and much more complicated. So, overall we can say, they both are comparatively at the same speed....?

"We" can say whatever we want, that doesn't make it true. One 57 is much, much faster than 1WTC.

Slow down, it wasn't an attack....
I just meant that the construction of 1 WTC is more complex than the construction of ONE57.

Both buildings are great! Well, I give up here. I just agree with you, I don't wanna argue.
But maybe you're right.

I have no doubt that workers on both projects do their maximum and the projects are progressing as fast as they can. Delays can sometimes not be avoided

157 grows faster than the WTC towers for 2 reasons: 1, It's skinny, It's volume is far smaller compared to 1WTC and 4WTC, 2, It is a simple concrete building while the WTC towers are very sophisticated concrete/steel hybrid towers built to survive anything

That's right, but take into account that the free movement space is bigger at the WTC than at one57 because the cranes of one57 can't moving their materials everywhere because of the surrounding buildings.

But this is going to end, when 157 becomes higher.

I think it's a UNFB. Unidentified Non-Flying Building

Btw, anybody got any new photos from an angle from which I could determine the current height?
