Now designed by SOM, the original design was by Libeskind.
We've all been waiting to see it completed.  Keep tuned there are many phases to come.

Negative space, where the original towers stood, combined with the movement of water create a dynamic and moving national memorial.

We Remember.

The new World Trade Center One building is now the tallest building in Manhattan, the tallest in the Western Hemisphere, and the fourth tallest building in the world.  The actual building height is the same as the original WTC 2, but the architectural spire brings the height to 1776 feet tall, and why many of us call it the Freedom Tower today.  WTC1, and the Memorial Museum are scheduled to open next year.
