80-storey 3 World Trade Center opens after delays

NEW YORK — An 80-storey office building set to open at the World Trade Center will be the third completed skyscraper at the site where the twin towers stood.

The June 11 ribbon-cutting for the 1,079-foot 3 World Trade Center marks a major step in the rebuilding of the site.

The new $2.7-billion building, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Rogers is the fifth-tallest building in New York City.

Its 62-foot lobby faces the National Sept. 11 Museum. It consists of an 80-storey tower straddling a 17-storey podium.

Tenants will include the advertising firm 3M and consultants McKinsey & Co.

Construction of the building was stalled for years by lack of financing and disputes between developer Larry Silverstein and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
