The new One World Trade Center is all set to become the New York’s tallest building, overtaking the Empire State Building moment a steel column is lifted into place on Monday. The new tower will surpass 1,250-foot Empire State Building with a final height of 1,776 feet.
The architecture of this building seems fairly complex and surely auto cad classes were needed by the professionals who designed it.
Once completed, the new One World Trade Tower will have 69 floors of office space, including restaurants and television broadcasting facilities, as well as an observation deck at the top.
In the shadow of the new tower is the 9/11 memorial, made up of two reflecting pools in the footprints of where the twin towers used to stand.
“It’s wonderful,” Mayor Bloomberg said Sunday. “It’s taken a long time. This is probably the most complex construction site in any place ever. I think what we’ve shown is that democracy works.”
It will also surpass the Willis Tower in Chicago as the tallest building in the US. Although One World Trade Center will be tallest building in the US, Dubai’s Bhurj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world.
