On Monday, June 11, 3 World Trade Center opened, marking its official completion and another accomplishment for the complex. The supertall building is the fourth to be finished out of the five towers that will make up the new World Trade Center complex.
3 World Trade Center is the complex’s second tallest building at 1,079 feet. It is also the fifth highest reaching skyscraper in New York City. The giant glass-clad construction spans a whopping 2.5 million square feet. Rogers Stirk Harbor + Partners’ Richard Rogers, who has won the Pritzker Prize for his architectural genius, designed the structure.
The building is developed by Silverstein Properties, who has already leased out 38 percent of the tall tower. 700,000 square feet across nine floors is the largest space being rented by tenant GroupM. IEX and McKinsey are also renting spaces in 3 WTC.
According to Curbed, “Some of the notable features of the building include the column-free floorplates that range in size between 30,000 to 70,000 square feet. The 80-story tower has ceiling heights that range from a little more than 13 feet to 24 feet. There are also five floors of retail—one on the ground floor, two above that, and two below ground. The building also has three outdoor terraces on the 17th, 60th, and 76th floors—Curbed had a chance to see what the views from that height will be like when it toured the construction site in 2016.”
