Two weeks ago I had said that the building had 44 floors, and you here insisted that the building had 48 floors. He spent a week or two, but now this building has 48 floors.

In my last diagram 1 or 2 weeks ago it had 47 floors. I didn't count them, another forumer did so I can't tell ya if it's 100% accurate. This time I did the counting myself but was still puzzled whether it has 47 floors or 48 floors. According to the feedback I got from other forumers I concluded that construction is atm at floor 48. Of course I or other forumers could have done an error, nobody's perfect so I apologize if such an error occured

I just find it weird that this 1000 ft tower is cramped between two buildings and seems like it's just a few inches off the road. Nonetheless, I'm very happy of this project and how its progressing so fast

Just tried to upload a diagram on imageshack and it required me making an account there so I returned to using tinypic. Here is the new diagram with updated height of 157

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i41.************/2w389vo.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 347 meters or 1138 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 227 meters or 745 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 188 meters or 618 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.)

One57 is now the 80th tallest building in New York City, taller than Times Square Plaza, the Manhattan Municipal Building, and the New York Life Building.

It is the 78th tallest, but I think you included one and four wtc.

One57 itself is not topped out so why not.

The supermarket, whch is the last tenant in the buildings that make up the site of 225 W57th, leaves next month. Therefore, 225, which is the final building on that site to be razed, should be gone by March!
