Business Starts at New World Trade Center
Nov 05, 2014

Almost 13 years after the twin towers were destroyed in the 9/11 attack, New York's World Trade Center has sprung back into business. The 3.8 billion dollar building took eight years to build and is currently the tallest building in the United States. The 104-storey-tall building is 60 percent leased and the government's General Services Administration has signed up for 275,000 square feet. This building is termed the most secure office building in USA.

The 1,776ft (541m) tall skyscraper which is stationed at the centre of the 16-acre site where the twin towers once stood, includes a memorial in the footprints of the old towers and a museum, opened this year. An observation deck at the top of the building will eventually be open to the public. The skyscraper has gone beyond the city's existing building code, and has been built with steel-reinforced concrete.
