The Phoenix Rises (July 2011 Edition)
The new World Trade Center is rapidly taking shape in Lower Manhattan. One World Trade Center (formerly “Freedom Tower”) now towers 74 floors (105 when completed) into the sky and the rest of the complex, including Four World Trade Center (which has risen to 37 floors), is finally coming together. One World Trade Center is scheduled for completion in November of 2013. It will be the tallest building in the United States, soaring a patriotic 1,776 ft. Opening is scheduled for January 2014.
Below are a few stunning pictures, captured by the British tabloid Daily Mail, that show the progress of the World Trade Center site.Follow @MicahsTwoCents
