NEW YORK (AP) — Thirteen years after the 9/11 terrorist attack, the resurrected World Trade Center is again opening for business — marking an emotional milestone for both New Yorkers and the United States as a whole.
Publishing giant Conde Nast will start moving Monday into One World Trade Center, a 104-story, $3.9 billion skyscraper that dominates the Manhattan skyline. It is America's tallest building.
I'm not an expert but I did make a 3D model of the building for the flight simulation program X-Plane, as a user-made custom scenery add-on.
I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that in order for the building to be considered 1776 feet tall, all of the measurable height had to be structural. So they adapted the top of the tower to fit the parameters.
