    As of August 20, 2011 she is 80 stories high. They have 25 stories to go. 105 stories in all. When finished the building with antenna will be 1,776 ft tall. Standing next to two 200 x 200 foot pools were the original WTC towers stood. Down the center is a concrete tube with wall of reinforced concrete three feet thick. This will house all the elevators and stairs, which are bigger and wider than ever before. The pour 40 trucks of concrete a day, raising one floor a week. Scheduled for completion in 2013. She is One World Trade Center. Agree or not, she had to be built. You destroy them we will rebuild them, stronger and taller than before.

    I pray that the new WTC will survive Irene later today. Mostly I pray for all the affected people and for their safety. (including my sons, daughter-in-law & grandson)

    This is awesome to see, thanks! Love the subtle patriotism with the building being 1,776 feet tall.

    Nothing subtle about it. They make a point of mentioning it every chance they get.

    My only regret is that the SOB Bin Laden won't be around to see it open. To me that would be a slap in his face. You can hurt us, but you can't keep us down. Not only will we rebuild it, but we will make it bigger and better.

    So, in other words, this tower also serves as the world's largest middle finger to Al-Qaeda. Fantastic. The more I learn about this building, the more I like it.:happy0005:
