One World Trade Center

Cable Net Construction Designed for Blast Loads | New York, New York

Soaring above New York City at 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center is America’s tallest building – and an indelible New York landmark and tribute to 9/11. Designed by David M. Childs of SOM, the 3-million-square-foot building includes office space, an observation deck, and world-class restaurants. From structural redundancy to dense fireproofing to biochemical filters, it creates a new standard for high-rise buildings. Safe, sustainable, artistically dynamic – the Freedom Tower stands as a shining beacon for New York’s Downtown and for the future of design.
