Opened in May 2006, the 52-story, 1.7-million-square-foot 7 World Trade Center is a benchmark of innovative design, safety, and sustainability. 7 WTC has drawn a diverse roster of tenants, including Moody's Corporation, New York Academy of Sciences, Mansueto Ventures, MSCI, and WilmerHale The building is now 100% occupied, having attracted many midtown companies to a revitalized Lower Manhattan.
The sheer beauty of 7 WTC's shimmering external façade gracefully enhances any corporate image. Designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, the rebuilt 7 WTC combines a powerful infrastructure with ultra-efficient floors. With 45-foot column-free spans, high ceilings, and stunning views in all directions, the 40,000-square-foot floor plate provides unparalleled freedom to customize each space.
The building's safety systems exceed the city's building code and Port Authority requirements, and its infrastructure - backup power systems, above-standard electrical capacity and next-generation HVAC systems - anticipates and exceeds future demands in every way.
7 World Trade Center combines a one-of-a-kind work environment with a one-of-a-kind commitment to environmental responsibility. It is New York's first LEED-Gold certified office building. Sustainable features include:
- Use of recycled materials during construction
- Energy efficiencies that reduce tenants' electricity costs by 35 percent compared with the Manhattan average
- Floor to ceiling glass windows designed daylighting while keeping out solar heat
- High-efficiency heating/cooling systems
- High-efficiency air filters that improve air quality and enhance productivity
- Plumbing systems that reduce water consumption by at least 30 percent
- Rooftop rainwater collection to cool the building and irrigate the nearby park
