Due to very small floors from here on this should rise and be T/O in no time

Around that height, so almost over 150 m.

Yup, in english everything non-living is an "it"

Btw, the current height is far more than 150 meters. I made a new diagram that shows 157 with 40 floors and before somebody calls a bounty hunter and orders my assassination plz let me note that this is a new, updated diagram that was never posted before

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i40.************/2h8234z.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 340 meters or 1115 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 217 meters or 712 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet Important note: The height of 4WTC shown in the diagram is wrong, I draw it when it was thought that 4WTC already has steel for the first two setback floors! This was later shown to not be true but I already edited the drawing! The height that is stated here (below the diagram) is the right one!
1 57 = Approximately 165 meters or 541 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.)

Not true kanto... Many people call there cars "she"

I could see this topping out before or at the same time as 4wtc.

That might be. Iirc it is rising more than 1 floor per week and the floors are getting far smaller near the top

Boats are also called "she" often. But nobody would bat an eye if someone described a cat or a boat as an "it".

So One57 is now taller than all its neighbors except Metropolitan Tower (218.2 m) and Carnegie Hall Tower (230.7 m). It won't won't reach those heights until next year, though.

Correct. I expect 157 to reach approximately 190 meters at the end of year, that is, if they keep this speed up and there won't be any delays

I'd like to see a frontal view from Central Park about now. How much of One57 looms up behind Essex House?

Amazing to see three of the four tallest in NYC under construction at the same time.

The diagram makes it seem that way. But they are among the cities top ten.

Extell's project a few buildings to the west, located at 225 W 57th St., is rapidly progressing with the demolition phase.

It looks like they took the first crane down, maybe it was causing too much trouble in the sidewalk area
