About 175 Greenwich Street

Three World Trade Center, also known by its street address, 175 Greenwich Street, is a skyscraper under construction as part of the World Trade Center reconstruction in New York City. The office building 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. Pritzker Prize-winning architect Lord Richard Rogers (Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners) was awarded the contract to design the building, which will be 1,155 feet (352 m) tall. The building slightly resembles the John Hancock Center in Chicago due to its visible belt trusses. The four spires in the design would give the building a pinnacle height of 1,240 feet (378 m). The total floor space of the building is anticipated to include 2 million square feet (186,000 square meters) of office and retail space. The building's groundbreaking took place in January 2008, and it is scheduled to be completed by 2014. The structural engineer for the building is WSP.
