One World Trade Center to Become Tallest Building in Western Hemisphere

Our favorite building, One World Trade Center is set to reach another milestone Monday, April 19 becoming the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

The final two sections of the 408-foot spire are set to be raised by constructors tomorrow Monday. The stainless steel spire will give the building its iconic height of 1,776 feet, the year of U.S. independence.

One World Trade Center became New York’s tallest building in April 2012.
