400 meters

do you have an idea of when the tower will reach a height of 400 meters ? (or 1300 feet, if you prefer) ???

according to me, 400 meters is THE milestone to reach to become a "supertall" skyscraper...

When One World Trade Center reaches floor 102 (98). That would be in late March.

I think more like when 1 wtc reaches to the 103M floor it will be 1300 feet.

Each of the upper floors is 20-25 feet high from floor to ceiling. The 103rd floor is 1,308 feet. So the beginning of the 1,300 foot mark would be on the 102nd floor, and floor 103 doesn't have M floors. From what I can tell all the floors including the M floors give One World Trade Center a floor count of 101 including the floors in the mast.

The 102nd Floor is 1,266' 8" above street level. The 103rd floor is 1,293' 4". The 104th floor, which will be at 1,313' 10" will break the 1,300 foot mark or 103M, which is at 1,303' 7". Hope all this info helps.

Here's another image I've been messing around with tonight just for fun, I'd love it if the lighting scheme was the same as this.

This is from nearly a year ago, but I really hope this is what the beam will be like

Found this little video thing about 1wtc and thought it was sort of interesting. It doesn't give new info that isn't probably on wikipedia but it's kind of cool to watch and it's short.

That video was almost word-to-word to what the Wikipedia profile for 1 WTC had. But then again,the website was called "qwiki".
