World Trade Center of the United States on 3 November 2014 re-opened its new tower for business. The tower was reopened for business thirteen years after the original twin towers were destroyed in the 9/11 terrorist attack.
It took eight long years to build New York's World Trade Center at an expense of 3.8 4 billion US dollar. It is now the tallest building in the US.
The 104-storey building is the centrepiece of the 16-acre site where the twin towers once stood, before they came crashing down on 11 September 2001, killing about 3000 people.
At present, almost 60 percent of the building is leased and employees of the publishing giant Conde Nast have started moving in. Executive Director of the Port Authority, which owns the restored site, said that the building is the most secure office building in America.
