A particular highlight of the NAIOP Vancouver tour of NYC commercial properties on September 24 was the tour of the new One World Trade Centre, one of the most distinctive office addresses in the world. Designed by a world renowned team of architects and engineers, delivered by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and managed by the First Organization in an unparalleled public-private partnership, One World Trade Centre provides office space that is prestigious beyond measure and that functions beyond expectation.
Designed by David Child's of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, OWTC provides 71 storeys and 3 million square feet of world class office space, featuring some of the most spectacular views in the world. The environmental, structural, and life safety enhancements of OWTC incorporate the latest technologies and set new standards for high rise design.
The gradually tapered tower produces minimal floor to floor changes in overall area and maintains a column free planning module. Floors are easy to plan and occupy. Floor to ceiling glass with a minimum height of nine feet allows offices to be flooded with natural light.
