I actually think the antenna gives the building a nice pinnacle.

It brings it more in line with the Chrysler...

Please make clear the situation:
Which year the antenna to 443 m was added?
Which year the antenna was increased to 448.7 m?
Why skyscraperpage write 448.7 m, but CTBUH write 443 m? :uhh:

OneWorldTradeCenter Jan 13, 2010 4:23 PM

The antenna was increaed from 443m to 448.7m in 1984. The first antenna was added in 1951.

5Gmuscovite Jan 13, 2010 4:28 PM

Thank you very much for the years!
But why CTBUH don't agree with 448.7 hight of antenna?:uhh:
May be now it is again 443m?
In which year this happen?

OneWorldTradeCenter Jan 13, 2010 4:34 PM

I guess in no year. In 1984 a new antenna was put in place. In German Wikipedia I read it has been increased to 448,7m. Some sources give the other way round. So I´m not sure about this. But why should a former antenna been taller?

5Gmuscovite Jan 13, 2010 6:49 PM

German Wikipedia gives 448.7 m
English Wikipedia gives 443 m
It must be equal and correct information.
Who know the truth?:sly:

OneWorldTradeCenter Jan 13, 2010 6:57 PM

I don´t know. French gives as well 448m? In books I find both information. I want to know this as well. Does anyone know this??

NYguy Jan 14, 2010 3:40 AM

The antenna was supposed to be decreased to 1,454 ft, but I don't recall if that happened.

Honestly, it changes so frequently that I don't know what it was for. They usually keep a listing on the website.

Even this building is rallying behind the Jets' playoff run. :-)

I still can't believe they're making it. :D

But look at the back of that photo, the Setai seems to be taking on the same color as the ESB in one place. Coincidence (construction lights?) , or will that building's glass really reflect the ESB? If so that'd be pretty cool.

It's a reflection of the ESB. The Setai is glassier that it would appear to be up close.
