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.

They announced in a statement:
‘The logo leverages both conceptual and practical connotations of the word “One.” On one level, the brand declares that 1 World Trade Center is “first among many” as a part of the world-renowned New York City skyline. The “One” in the logo emphasizes its status as the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building. The logo and tagline also reinforce messages of achievement and aspiration associated with the building.
On a practical basis, the dominance of the word “One” conveys a strong message about the building’s singular features: its functionality, its sustainability, its location, its floorplates, its specifications, and its central role in the Lower Manhattan renaissance.” The brand was designed by Wordsearch.’
