Tower 2 @ World Trade Center – New York, NY
Tower 2 is starting to rise at the World Trade Center. The tower will be the second–tallest skyscraper on the World Trade Center site and in New York City, following One World Trade Center.
At 1,349 feet, 2 WTC tower will contain five levels of retail; four trading floors; 60 office floors – a of total 3.1 million rentable square feet; and a 67-foot-high office lobby. Its eight entrances will allow access at street level, below-grade at the WTC Transportation Hub, and at the retail area. A typical office area will vary in size from 41,000 to 45,000 rentable square feet of space. Trading floors will be 65,000 square feet.
2 WTC will seek to to achieve the LEED Gold standard for energy efficiency. 2 World Trade Center will be a powerful statement of hope as we look to the future. Its height celebrates the spirit of the city and the diamond shape top will be a crowning landmark in Manhattan’s new skyline.
The building is aligned along an axis so that (weather permitting) one side will be lit by sunshine each year on September 11th at exactly 8.46 a.m., the precise time that the first plane hit the One World Trade Center tower on September 11, 2001.
