The Rise of One World Trade Center

1 PDH - #NY1349

This presentation will discuss the design and construction of One World Trade Center (1WTC), which is the tallest of the four buildings planned as part of the Ground Zero reconstruction master plan for lower Manhattan. It will also be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere upon completion in 2014. The overall height of the tower from the ground level to the top of the spire reaches 1776 feet (541 meters) as a tribute to the "freedoms" emanating from the Declaration of Independence adopted in 1776.  One World Trade Center's program includes 3.0 million square feet of new construction above ground and 500,000 square feet of construction of new subterranean levels. The tower consists of 71 levels of office space, and eight levels of MEP space. It also includes a 50-foot high lobby, tenant amenity spaces, a two-level observation deck at 1,242 feet (379 meters) above ground, a "sky" restaurant, parking, retail space and access to public transportation networks.
