    Did it really seem as prominent to you as the one will be on the FT?

    Looking from my windows I'd say the prominence will be about equal.

    Couldn't miss the first one.

    Hoping that the new one will look big and bold against the SW sky.

    Am wondering how the new 1WTC will shadow the low winter sun in comparison with the Twins ...

    Those columns look awfully small for such a big building.

    Never-the-less, it finally begins to rise.

    ^^ They are huge in person.

    I guess they look small since the webcam is about 900 feet form the site.

    Plus they'll be encased in concrete.

    Just compare the column in the foreground of the pic with the columns you see in photos of the Goldman Sachs building... they look like toothpicks in comparison. Also note the double-profile, rather than the typical I-shaped profile... and the fact that each plate of steel that makes up the shape is super thick... these are custom columns probably, welded from major, major plates o' steel.

    i wouldn't want to kick them. ;-)

    this one's a bit old and not taken from the bridge, but it's the closest thing I know of.

    so who's got an estimate of when we will actually see floors rising above street level?
    Can you tell I'm anxious?
