One World Trade Center was topped out on Friday with the addition of the final piece of its spire. At the overtly symbolic height of 1,776 feet high, give or take a few feet, the tower is now the highest in the US and third tallest in the world. This is, of course, pending the approval of the spire as an integral part of the building; otherwise, its height would be counted to the highest occupiable level of the building. Keep a look out for when it opens for business in 2014!
