Soaring above the city at 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center is America's tallest building - and an indelible New York landmark. Designed by David M. Childs of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the 3-million-square-foot building includes office space, an observation deck and world-class restaurants.
The building was initially developed by Silverstein Properties and taken over by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in April 2006. The building is expected to open in November, 2014.
The 104-story building will feature a grand lobby and observation deck with unparalleled views. Currently, the building is 55% leased to tenants Conde Nast, Vantone China Center, and the U.S. General Services.
Sustainable design is central to One WTC's development, integrating renewable energy, interior daylighting, reuse of rainwater, and recycled construction debris and materials. The below-grade concourses will include approximately 55,000 square feet of retail space and connect to an extensive transportation network.
