The new World Trade Center’s claim to be the tallest building in the United States at 1,776 feet could turn out to be a tall tale.

Says who? The chief architect of 1 World Trade, David Childs.

Childs blasted the decision by the Port Authority and developer The Durst Organization to remove a design treatment at the top of the tower that could prevent the 408-foot spire from being counted toward the skyscraper’s official height.

That would make 1 World Trade shorter than Chicago’s Willis Tower, now the nation’s tallest.
