Manhattan, NY 10006

description/

This 104-story, 1,776 foot-tall building is the Western hemisphere’s tallest skyscraper (and the fourth tallest in the world). Designed by David Childs of the august firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, One WTC starts at ground level with a traditional square base, but as it rises, the edges are pared away, yielding a distinctive eight-sided tower composed of a series of soaring isosceles triangles, and topped by a 408-foot spire. Built on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center, the structure formerly known as the "Freedom Tower" will, when completed, have restaurants and an observation deck for the public—scheduled to open in early 2015—as well as plenty of commercial office space.
