Images from this year's dazzling light festival
Take a look!
Brand new renderings of the highly anticipated One World Trade Centre (also called 1WTC) have just been unveiled. The building, which was previously called the Freedom Tower, will sit on the site where the Twin Towers stood, before their tragic fall in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Sian Disson, News Editor at World Architecture News said: "These renderings demonstrate the transformational effect that Skidmore, Owings and Merrill's One World Trade Center is going to have on the city of New York as part of the wider masterplan. The minor alterations shown in these images are intrinsic to the design, giving character and showcasing how subtle changes from the architects will redefine the tower and stitch it into the fabric of Lower Manhattan. The construction project has suffered a series of glitches but hopefully it is now onwards and upwards for New York's highest new landmark."

did you guys not learn from the first trade centre? make sure it has anti aircraft guns on the roof,
or a carbon fiber wrap shell that makes it blast proof. and better anti fire install with escape pods to get down from top quickly incase of emergency.
I pray that we learn not to let this s+&% happen again.
I saw the twin towers, I saw the hole in the ground afterwards and now I am looking forward to seeing the One World Trade Centre when it is finished.
suggest you do your research "Bruce Morrison".
Im going to state one of the thousands of facts regarding the Twin Towers :-
"Each tower was structurally designed to withstand multiple plane craches due to the sheer height of these towers and the mass of people which day to day occupy and surround the twin towers"
Funnily enough one plane destroyed each tower, even under the impact sight
Center and in UK part of the site. Please check spelling before posting for us to see like this
Good to know that they've managed to get some plans together for this project - and only took nigh on 11 years to get this far.
What bull**** are you talking - go wash that sponge of nothing that's between your ears !!!
Get a life idiot !!!
I am betting that the office space nearest the ground floor will be the most sought after.
The top floors will be for people with suicide tendencies or adrenalin junkies
