One World Trade Center

Location: 285 Fulton St, New York, NY 10007

One World Trade Center is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan. It is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The supertall structure has the same name as the North Tower of the original World Trade Center, which was completely destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre (6.5 ha) World Trade Center site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center. The building is bounded by West Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, and Washington Street to the east. The building's architect was David Childs, whose firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) also designed the Burj Khalifa and the Willis Tower.

On May 10, 2013, the final component of the skyscraper's spire was installed, making the building, including its spire, reach a total height of 1,776 feet (541 m). Its height in feet is a deliberate reference to the year when the United States Declaration of Independence was signed. The building opened on November 3, 2014; the One World Observatory opened on May 29, 2015.

The building is 104 standard floors high, but the tower has only 94 actual stories. The main observatory is located on the 100th floor, where you have panoramic views in every direction. There are also 3 dining options on the 101st floor, each with its own distinct flavors and unparalleled views.

The 3 options are: One Café (light casual fare), One Mix (handcrafted small plates and artisanal cocktails in a casual bar and bistro environment) and One Dine (seasonally-inspired fine dining experience overlooking the vibrant main observation floor) This attraction is on the route of your New York sightseeing tour and should not be missed.
