Tenants are Moving Into the Largest Building in the Western Hemisphere
Standing 1,776 feet above the streets of Manhattan, One World Trade Center is welcoming in tenants to the 104-floor masterpiece, 14 years after 9-11. The striking structure is the largest building in the Western Hemisphere, and tenants began filing in last November.
The most sprawling company footprint extends more than 20 floors and is occupied by Conde Nast, a mass media firm. The employees greeted their new workplace with enthusiasm in a November 2014 interview with the New York Post. One called it a homecoming, another expressed pride while several others praised the security measures.
Other tenants include a diner near the top floor, reminiscent of the North Tower. China Center New York, a business and culture exchange company, and a government services agency each take up six floors and one to two floor commitments include tenants involved in gaming and virtual office industries.
View from the 90th Floor
It’s impossible to not acknowledge the past events at the World Trade Center grounds, but Vijay Ramcharitar, a finance analyst moving into the 25th floor, summed up an enlightening view shared by millions of his fellow New Yorkers. “I could understand the fear behind it, but fear is something they (terrorists) want you to live with,” he said. “If you live with fear, you can’t get anything done. I don’t think you look at this building with fear, you look at it with inspiration.”
