Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City back in 2001, many have awaited to see the reconstruction of the World Trade Centers. Today, we're happy to bring you guys some amazing development in the process.
The Telegraph reports that on Monday, the final beam (holstering a U.S. flag) was raised by construction workers to the top of the 72-story building in an emotional ceremony. The construction of the 977-foot tower, designed by Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, began in 2008.
Project developer Larry Silverstein said in a statement, "The topping out of 4 World Trade Center represents another milestone in the effort to create a new, dynamic World Trade Center at the heart of a resurgent Downtown."
With addition to Tower 4, the Freedom Tower is also in construction, standing right now as the tallest building in New York City. That building is set to reach a height of 1,776 feet—ironically symbolic to the year of US independence.
