Construction Update: One World Trade Center Nears Completion

Since passing the Empire State Building in height, new levels of steel have been added to One World Trade. It’s roughly four floors from reaching its final roof height, so the saga is finally almost over. Although the spire has likely been replaced by an antenna, meaning the 1,776′ tip won’t count as the tower’s official height, One World Trade will still have New York’s tallest roof height upon completion… at least until 432 Park is finished.

  1. Just FYI, there’s no indication that the proposed changes at 1 WTC will have any effect on the official height.

    The NY Times article has been taken out of context, due to a muddled quote by someone at CTBUH. The proposed changes would not change the official height, though are worrisome (IMO) for aesthetic reasons.

  2. I don’t think that’s true, given the antenna is almost entirely functional rather than architectural. Ultimately CTBUH will be the decision maker on the issue.
