Since today is the anniversary of September 11th, I would like to take today’s blog to remember the national tragedy by giving an update on One World Trade Center. One World Trade Center, also referred to as the Freedom Tower, was the first building to be constructed on the actual World Trade Center site. A few weeks ago that tower was completed, which will now be taller than the Willis Tower once antennas are added. Here are pictures of 1 World Trade Center.
Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill LLP is designing WTC. The three other high-rise buildings are being constructed around the tower and pay homage to the World Trade Center Memorial.Construction began in 2006 and is not expected to be completed until 2018. The tower will have over 2.6 million square feet of office space, retail, on observation deck, parking, and access PATH and subway trains.
