One of my favorite constructions projects in New York City just passed 1,000 feet, but still has over 300 more feet to go before topping out. Once completed, its roof height will exceed that of One World Trade Center, making it the tallest (by roof height) in the city.

What if the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, had been built in Manhattan? It makes One World Trade Center look kind of puny.
This thing is GORGEOUS.
Completion date: 2014
Completed height: 2,073 ft
The iconic tower in lower Manhattan is expected to reach its final height of 1,776 ft sometime tomorrow when the final section of the mast is installed. Here is a recent photo of the skyscraper and a shot looking down from the antenna.
UPDATE: It should surprise no one that the topping out has been delayed. This building has been in an almost permanent state of delay since it began construction.

The iconic tower in lower Manhattan will reach its full height soon! From the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center:
With only one segment remaining, the spire atop 1 World Trade Center is on track for completion this month. The 408-foot-tall finial completes the tower’s full height of 1,776 feet, while work continues throughout the 1,368-foot-tall skyscraper. The Port Authority presented the latest updates to Community Board 1 on April 4th, noting that 55 percent of the building is pre-leased, and tenant floors are now being built out.
