History of One World Trade Center

After the attacks of September 11, 2001, various projects were started on the site called Ground Zero to give space to mourning, but also to create something new.

Freedom Tower

Initially, the skyscraper under construction as of the 2004 Indepedence Day was also called Freedom Tower; in the vernacular, this name is also still used. The architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill based its design on an initial draft by architect Daniel Libeskind, who also designed the Jewish Museum in Berlin, for example.

11 Years of Construction

After 11 years of construction, the new One World Trade Center with its 1776 feet (541 meters) meters of height (measured with antenna) was finally completed in 2015. This ultra-modern skyscraper, which is the eighth tallest in the world, houses offices of various companies in addition to the observation deck and restaurant on a total of 104 floors.
