      Soaring above the city at 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center is America's tallest building - and an indelible New York landmark. Designed by David M. Childs of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the 3-million-square-foot building includes office space, an observation deck and world-class restaurants. The building was initially developed by Silverstein Properties and taken over by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in April 2006. It is expected to be open in 2014. #NYC #NewYorkCity #NewYork
