The Concept

3 World Trade Center is located just opposite the WTC Memorial and Cultural Center, and represents a central part of the World Trade Center master plan in NYC's financial district. The central zone of the 80-story tower reduces in mass as it rises towards the sky in order to complement its relationship to the main space between the memorial water pools. The podium houses retail and trading levels, while smaller floor plates accomodate various office spaces. The entirely glass-clad tower consists of a reinforced concrete core encased by an external structural steel frame.


329 m / 1079 ft

69 stories tall

The building features floor-to-ceiling glass, and all four corners and each floor plate of the tower are column-free to create an open workspace environment. Sustainable features have been included in the design to significantly reduce energy use and costs. Following One WTC and 7 WTC, the tower is expected to reach a LEED® Gold certification.

Glass and single skin curtain wall system plus façade podium with oversized units and cable net wall, for a total of 93,600 sqm (over 1 million sq ft); around 2,700 sqm (29,000 sq ft) of ornamental metal and glass work.
