World Trade Center Tower 2 News
Original Design: Foster + Partners, architects
A new report from the Wall Street Journal suggests that BIG may replace Foster + Partners to realize the World Trade Center 2 (WTC2) tower – the final tower planned to be built on Ground Zero. The 79-story tower, designed in 2006, was stalled due to the economic crash of 2008.
“The final tower planned at the World Trade Center redevelopment could be dramatically altered under a proposal being discussed by 21st Century Fox Inc. and News Corp, which are considering a move to the site, according to people familiar with the talks.
The media companies and developer Larry Silverstein have brought in avant-garde Danish architect Bjarke Ingels to redesign 2 World Trade Center in the event of a move. Mr. Ingels, co-designer of Google Inc.’s planned new headquarters expansion in Silicon Valley, would replace renowned British architect Norman Foster as lead designer for 2 World Trade Center, these people said.”
SOM completed 1 World Trade Center in late 2014 and 3 World Trade Center by Richard Rogers is on track to complete in 2017.

Two World Trade Center is also known by its street address, 200 Greenwich Street. This new Manhattan skyscraper is a new office building on hold and is part of the World Trade Center reconstruction in New York City.
When completed, the WTC Tower 2 will be located on the east side of Greenwich Street, across the street from the original location of the Twin Towers that were destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The 79-story WTC Tower 2 building was designed by Foster and Partners. The building will have a height of 1,270 feet (387 m), with an antenna that creates a total height of 1,350 feet (411 m). In comparison, the Empire State Building’s roof at the 102nd floor is 1,250 feet (381 m) tall, and its antenna is 1,472 ft (448 m).
