This is honestly quite average pace. I think what was more impressive was the Devon Headquarters in Oklahoma City, that thing went up faster than any building I can remember. This building seems to have slowed down quite a bit since the beginning though.

the speed for Devon and this building is about the same. Only this building is a supertall and the building in OKC isn't.

What happened to BoA's spire in that pic? Is it from the time during BoA's construction?

I've updated my diagram with the latest progress

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i45.************/2rhmv6b.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 388 meters or 1274 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 265 meters or 868 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
157 = 248 meters or 815 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 has now surpassed the Woolworth Building, the MetLife Building, One Chase Manhattan Plaza, as well as the Bloomberg Tower without the antenna, making it the 14th tallest building in NYC and the 45th tallest in the USA.

The next time it jumps, it will pass its only remaining taller neighbor, the CitySpire Center.

Actually it has already passed it by a few decimeters

Btw, Arawooho, I can't see your pic cause photobucket is blocking it. I can recommend you tinypic, no paying, no registration, a very good and reliable image hosting service

Wow, this is fast... so Rockefeller Center is next on the list - and for the first time there'll be a taller building on the North panorama from GE observation deck.

Good question. Because BOA had the spire before all the cladding was finished.

The cladding here is stunning. Wait till it's fully clad and the blue protective film is removed.
