As long as the weather cooperates, the tower will surpass the 1,250-foot Empire State Building at 2 p.m. on its way to a final height of 1,776 feet.
“It’s wonderful,” Mayor Bloomberg said Sunday.
“It’s taken a long time. This is probably the most complex construction site in any place ever. I think what we’ve shown is that democracy works.”
Once completed, the Ground Zero skyscraper, often called the Freedom Tower, will have 104 floors, including 71 office floors with 3 million square feet of space.
The official address of the Freedom Tower is One World Trade Center. It is scheduled to open late in 2013 or possibly early 2014. Link -via Gizmodo
