This one has had the most conflicting numbers, so I have no idea. When it was first revealed, the tower was 1,155 ft to parapet, topped by the 4 one hundred ft spires. Then it was dropped back to 1,140 and 1,147. And it's also probably the one that had the most potential changes, because we do know that Silverstein flirted with building a larger, taller tower on site, even pausing work at the site, with the Port Authority's blessing, just in case. (That was for potential tenant Merril Lynch, and we know what happened with that).
Of course, Silverstein went ahead with plans for the smaller tower when he couldn't get Merrill Lynch to make a headquarters there.
