One World Trade Center, the giant monolith being built to replace the twin towers destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, will lay claim to the title of New York City’s tallest skyscraper on Monday, April 30 as workers erect steel columns that will make its unfinished skeleton a little over 1,250 feet, just high enough to peak over the observation deck on the Empire State Building. The milestone is a preliminary one. The so-called “Freedom Tower” isn’t expected to reach its full height for at least another year, at which point it is likely to be declared the tallest building in the U.S. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, File)

Edificios más altos del mundo

1 de mayo de 2012

La torre 1WTC, antes conocida como "Freedom Tower" o "Torre de la Libertad", en construcción en la zona de los atentados del 11 de setiembre de 2001, se convirtió el lunes en el rascacielos más alto de Nueva York, superando al venerable Empire State Building. La altura final de la torre de 104 pisos será de 541,3 metros o 1.776 pies, cifra simbólica de la Independencia de EEUU. Una vez concluida la obra, compartirá el puesto 14 de los rascacielos más altos del mundo.
