3 World Trade Center building set to open after years of delays


An new office building at the World Trade Center is set to open soon.

The 80-storey building is the third completed skyscraper at the site where the twin towers stood. 3 World Trade Center is yet another step to rebuilding the site, stalled for years by disputes among government agencies, trade center developer Larry Silverstein, insurers and 9/11 victims’ family members who wanted the entire site to be forever preserved as a memorial, according to Global News.

The $2.7 billion building, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Rogers, has been the fifth-tallest building in New York City since construction topped out in 2016.

Silverstein said 40 percent of 3 World Trade’s office space is leased. Meanwhile, 2 World Trade Center is awaiting an anchor tenant and financing before it can be built.
