World Trade Center Reborn

Kathryn Mangan

One World Trade Center

The new world trade center will be 1,776 feet tall making it the tallest building in the US. It will be this tall to represent the year the nation got its independence. It will have 104 floors. The top 1,368 feet will be a glass enclosure, and 1,362 feet will be an observation deck. These represented the heights of the former World Trade towers. The building will have 2.6 million square feet of floor space. It cost around 3.6 million dollars to build. It also has 71 elevators with five high speed cars moving at 23 mph to get you to the top of the building in 45 seconds.

The New World Trade Center

The new world trade center is projected to have three million annual visitors. It will have six office buildings. It will be around the 9/11 memorial plaza and museum. It will have a performing arts center. It will also have the state-of-the-art Transmit Hub.

The 9/11 Memorial

The 9/11 memorial will consist of two reflecting pools that stand at the footprints of the old world trade centers. Each pool has a thirty foot man made waterfall. The pools are bordered by bronze parapets that have the names of the 2,983 victims of the 1993 and 2001 attacks. Each pool holds up to 45,000 gallons of water and is heated so the pools are open year round.
