Architects unveiled the designs for 2 World Trade Center on Tuesday, which will be the last tower built on the site of the World Trade Center.
The new tower, designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels (of BIG) and developed by Silverstein Properties, is slated to become the new home of 21st Century Fox and News Corp. The building is specifically designed to "restore the majestic skyline of Manhattan and unite the streetscapes of Tribeca," Ingels said in a statement. "From TriBeCa, the home of lofts and roof gardens, it will appear like a vertical village of singular buildings stacked on top of each other to create parks and plazas in the sky. From the World Trade Center, the individual towers will appear unified, completing the colonnade of towers framing the 9/11 Memorial. Horizontal meets vertical. Diversity becomes unity.”
2 World Trade Center will be the fourth and last tower built on the site of the World Trade Center buildings destroyed on 9/11.
