Even though work resumed on 3 World Trade Center just five months ago, the future supertall tower's core is already halfway to its superlative height. YIMBY reports that the building's core now stands at 41 of 80 stories, with pictures from a tipster to prove it, even though it doesn't look that tall surrounded by its sky-high neighbors. When the 600 people who come to work at the site every day are finished building up the structure in 2016, it will stand approximately 1,170 feet tall.

A tweaked design for the tower by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners was unveiled after developer Larry Silverstein secured financing for the site following a fraught battle that kept the development stalled for several years. YIMBY says that 3 World Trade Center should top out in late 2016, be glassed by 2017, and be ready for tenants by 2018.
