World Trade Center One Tower is 55 Per Cent Leased

Posted on 30 July, 2012 by Jodee Redmond

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has announced that World Trade Center One is 55 per cent leased. U.S. General Services Administration will be occupying 270,000 sq. ft. of space on floors 50-55 of the rebuilt skyscraper. Magazine publisher Conde Nast is a major tenant in the $3.8 billion office tower, having penned a deal to occupy 1.2 million sq. ft. in the building. Vantone China Center has also committed to WTC1 and will be leasing 191,000 sq. ft. of space.

When completed, One World Trade Center will be not only one of the most prestigious office towers on the planet, but also one of the most green construction projects. Recycled materials, including sustainably-harvested wood, were used for the project and construction debris was recycled. Construction vehicles used on the job site used ultra-low sulphur diesel fuels.

Tenants who choose to rent space at World Trade Center One will no doubt be impressed by amenities like the 54 passenger elevators, nine elevator banks, and five service elevators. Five express elevators will be available to take passengers to observation deck levels in the building. The street-level lobby will feature a 50-foot ceiling and four entrances to the building.

A public observation deck is located on the 100th and 101st floors, and an antenna mast rises up to 1,776 feet. All floors in the building are serviced by elevators. A Skylobby on the 64th floor is the entrance point for the office floors directly above. A five-bay loading dock is accessible from Washington and Liberty Streets.

Tenants at WTC1 will have the benefit of extensive security services when they move their business operations into the building. Not only is the building monitored electronically, but uniformed security guards are on duty on a 24/7 basis. A Police Command Center and a Vehicular Security Center are also part of the security features at World Trade Center One.
