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" includes restaurants and One World Observatory for the public, as well as plenty of commercial office space.
Start by ascending to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere in less than 60 seconds; look toward the horizon and feel the City’s invincible spirit. Explore three levels filled with innovation and inspiration at One World Observatory, located in the top three floors of One World Trade Center.
