Powerful pics Jsocal.
From Greenwich Boy's pics, the top looks like its closing in on 7WTC's height.
While I like the tapering/octagon/pyramid form of the tower there's something about it that makes it look shorter than it really is. I think the base has a lot to do with it. They should have continued the taper all the way to the base
Making it one giant Λ instead of V
(I hope the V's line up on your computer)
Good point. More like the Hancock tower.
The tower is almost reminiscent of it's next door neighbor 7 WTC when IT was being built!
We're now a few weeks away from losing view from the East (in Brooklyn) of the WTC tower immediately to the West of WTC 1. I'd say equal height with WTC 7 from the same vantage point before end of February.
Original photo by GreenwichBoy.
So now top of steel is about 4 feet above the 56th floor (666' 8").
Six more floors and it will be taller than #7. (It will also pass 3 WFC in the same week.)

^Good comparison, 1WTC is gonna dominate West Street.

I wonder how many people out there do not know that the new Tower One will be just as tall as the old Tower One. (Plus the spire of course.)
Totally off topic. J E T S JETS JETS JETS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
