The Port Authority and The Durst Organization today issued 13 new renderings of One World Trade Center. The two organizations are jointly developing the iconic, 3-million-square-foot office tower now under construction in Lower Manhattan.

Upon its scheduled completion in early 2014, One World Trade Center will rise 1,776 feet to the top of its spire, making it the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

The building will serve as the headquarters of world-class publisher Condé Nast, which has leased nearly 1.2 million sf on 25 floors. An additional 190,000 sf has been leased by Vantone China Center and another 270,000 sf by the federal General Services Administration—bringing One World Trade Center to 55% leased.

One World Trade Center aims to be one of the most sustainable office buildings of its size and to achieve LEED Gold certification standards. These standards will result in lower energy expenses, lower operating expenses, access to natural light through floor-to-ceiling glass windows and highly filtered air. +
