Check out these new renderings of One World Trade Center from the Port Authority and the Durst Organization.  The images were released to illustrate recent design modifications – such as a treatment for the tower’s first 20 stories and the elimination of the casing around the antenna.   These fresh thirteen visuals offer a look at the tower from perspectives taken around the boroughs and New Jersey.   While these renderings offer a taste of what can be expected,  it is great to physical progress being made and how close we are to a completed tower.

More after the break.

For those walking past the tower, the first 20 stories have seemed like a great mystery for months, as the glass and steel continue to rise into the sky, but the concrete still remains exposed on the lower levels.   These renderings depict a lower level clad with gridded steel panels.

We shared previously that the building will serve as the headquarters of world-class publisher Condé Nast, which has leased nearly 1.2 million square feet on 25 floors. An additional 190,000 square feet has been leased by Vantone China Center and another 270,000 square feet by the federal General Services Administration – bringing One World Trade Center to 55 percent leased.

As we have reported earlier, One World Trade recently snatched its spot as New York’s tallest skyscraper, and upon completion, in early 2014, One World Trade Center will rise 1,776 feet to the top of its spire, making it the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
