History

Architecture and Design

Owners and tenants
One World Trade Center´s final design consisted of simple symmetries and a traditional profile.

The building´s footprint is nearly identical of the original Twin Towers.

The tower rises from a 185 foot (56m) windowless concrete base, designed to protect it against bombs and other ground level terror threats.
BILD
Layout
One World Trade Center's top floor will be designated as 104.

There will be a sky lobby on floor 64, and then office floors will resume between floors 65- 90.

Meanwhile, floors 91-99 and 103-104 will be designated as mechanical space.
Sustainability
The tower will also make use of off-site hydroelectric and wind power

The windows are made of an ultra-clear glass which allows maximum daylight to pass through.

While interior lighting is equipped with dimmers that automatically lower the lights on sunny days, thereby reducing energy costs.
Safety and security
Other safety features were included in the building’s design

3 foot (91cm) thick reinforced concrete walls for all stairwells

extra wide, pressurized stairwells

elevator shafts

risers

a dedicated set of stairwells exclusively for the use of fire fighters.

and sprinkler systems

All vehicles will be screened before they entered the site via the underground roadway, including for radioactive materials.
Height
The roof of the top floor of One World Trade Center is 1,368 feet (417m) tall.


The building´s antenna brings One World Trade Center to a height of 1,776 feet (541m), a figure symbolic of the 1776 United states Declaration of Independence.
