Today is the 14th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, in which 2977 people died and over 6 thousand were injured.

Two twin towers, which were the objective of attacks on 11th September 2001, were situated in the central part of the World Trade Center complex. The buildings offered jointly the office area for 35 thousand people and 430 companies. Each of the towers was 110-floor-high, which means that they were the highest structures in New York.


Today there are no signs of the past on the 16-hectare plot after 14 years and tragic attacks. New office buildings are being realized within the World Trade Center complex and others have been not completed yet. One of the most popular ones is the highest structure in the United States – One Trade Center – which is 541-meter-high skyscraper with 104 floors. The structure was designed by David Childs and it is a headquarters of the Conde Nast company. It also has an opened observation deck which is located on three floors.


Another office of the complex, the commission of which is planned on 2020, will be 2 World Trade Center. Its project was devised in the Bjarke Ingels Group architectural studio. The 387-meter-high structure will be a new registered office of 21st Century Fox and News Corp which will occupy almost the half of the building. Moreover, works at 3 World Trade Center are being continued. Its commission is envisaged at the beginning of 2018. The building was designed by Richard Rogers and it will be 329-meter-high skyscraper and a new headquarters of GroupM. 


Two other offices – 4 World Trade Center and 7 World Trade Center were built within the complex. First of them was commissioned in November 2013 and its project was devised by Fumihiko Maki. At present, the commercialization process of the structure totals ca. 56 per cent and the group of tenants includes i.a. authorities of the New York City. The second one, which is the oldest building of the complex, was opened in 2006. It is completely rented by i.a. Moody's Corporation, Ameriprise Financial, NCR, BMI, New York Sciences Academy, Mansueto Ventures, Kostelantz & Fink legal company and WestLB.
