About 150 Greenwich Street

150 Greenwich Street is the address for a new skyscraper being erected as part of the World Trade Center reconstruction in New York City. The office building has also been referred to as Four World Trade Center and will be on the east side of Greenwich Street, across the street from the original location of the twin towers that were destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. Noted architect Fumihiko Maki was awarded the contract to design the building, which will be 947 feet (288 m) tall, making it the fourth tallest skyscraper on the World Trade Center site. New revised plans state the tower will now rise a total of 975 feet (297 m). The total floor space of the building is anticipated to include 1.8 million square feet (167,000 square meter) of office and retail space. The building's groundbreaking took place in January 2008, and it is scheduled to be completed by 2011. The structural engineer for the building is Leslie E. Robertson Associates, New York City. As of December 2009, only it and One World Trade Center have progressed to the point where the construction is visible above ground level.
