Oh wow, look at the glass go! I wonder what floor that is at now - it looks like there's at least a 20 floor gap between the cladding and the top (so far) of 1 WTC... Plus 7 WTC is 52 stories high and it looks like 1 WTC's cladding is 10 stories higher than 7 WTC now...

Based on what I see on wtc.com, I'm guessing this puts the cladding as being at the 72nd floor now? Is that even right? Seems about right for the amount of floors that haven't been cladded yet.

Maybe it's just me, but I like this tower. I like the simplicity of it and sleekness of it. I don't find it overscaled either. Towers of this height usually are 'bigger' buildings...this one is not as overscaled as the old WTC. Just my two cents.

1WTC looks great and compliments its surroundings quite well,and I'm sure that many people will agree on that part.

1 WTC set to become NYC's tallest building

By Jennifer Fermino



One World Trade Center, left, and Four World Trade Center on April 19.

Quote:
One World Trade Center is poised to become the tallest building in New York City within the next couple of days, officials said today.

Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye said contruction is proceding so rapidly it could surpass the Empire State Building's height as early as Monday, weather permitting.

"One World Trade Center will be the tallest building in Manhattan, eclipsing the Empire State Building," said Foye at a Crain's Breakfast forum this morning in Midtown.

When finished, One World Trade Center will be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

Construction started six years ago.

Foye said 55 percent of the building is leased.

Can't wait. This is going to be the third time NYC has had a tower succeeding the ESB's height. This number is going to grow like wildfire in the near future.

Does that put 1 WTC at about the 73rd floor for cladding now? (my guess anyway)
