Twin Towers of World Trade Center in Minecraft.

Short history lesson.

World Trade Center - the original building complex of 7 buildings. Full construction process of the complex from 1968 till 1987. Whole complex stood, for more than a quarter of a century, in Lower Manhattan New York. It was destroyed on September 11th, 2001. The last building remains were demolished in December 2001, by January 2002 the site was clear.

Building Specifications in heights.
WTC 1 (North tower) - 417m. or 444m. in my world.
WTC 2 (South tower) - 415m. or 444m. in my world.
WTC 3 (Marriott Hotel) - 74m. or 76m. in my world.
WTC 4 - 36m. or 45m. in my world.
WTC 5 - 36m. or 45m. in my world
WTC 6 (U.S. Customs House of New York) - 28m. or 33m. in my world.
WTC 7 (Salomon Brothers Inc.) - 190m. or 192m in my world.

More information about this project.
This is the original replica of the Twin towers (1973-2001) and the complex itself. The buildings and streets are approximately how they looked on June - September 2001. It took me a time to find the exact pictures of the WTC and the streets that surrendered them in all angles that I could find. It was pretty not easy for me, but I could finish the main buildings including plaza and its containments.
The complex is without Mall under the plaza, it will be completed in sometime. Train system or WTC PATH will not be included. There are no lobbies for building 3, 4 and 5, because I didn't find any good or very helpful images and blueprints for building them, so interiors are basically untouched.
Version of Minecraft that I use for this project is 1.7.9

The biggest of my projects ever made by me, is an actual Lower Manhattan in 2001 that you can see here. That is also waiting for a big update.
I am not in a hurry to build something, I am doing it all without a rush, but at the same time I' am trying my best! So be patient. Yes I know, that the project isn't perfect, but in some moments it went very well.

Big thank you for your time and support, have a great day and see y' all on next update!

Are you planning on releasing the download for this once it's complete?

Also, since this is 1:1, I presume it is over the height limit; did you use the cubic chunks mod to build the towers or did you build them in sections?

and also how did you avoid the 256 block building height limit?

He might have rendered this in a separate program.

Wow...how exactly was this created? It appears to be 1:1...but there's a build limit.
