3 World Trade Center wins at ULI

ULI: 3 World Trade's Excellence in Office Development

By ULI | Urban Land Institute

The development and design of 3 World Trade Center was a complex and challenging project, but one which has helped to contribute to the revitalization of New York City and one which will help to inspire a new hope for the city’s future. When thousands of new employees move in over the coming months, they will be a part of a massive sea change in how New Yorkers use office space. Standing as New York City’s fifth-tallest building, this 2.5 million-square-foot, 1,079-foot tall tower is the latest and most advanced in a series of high-tech, sustainable and high-profile buildings to rise Downtown. The largely column-free interior, a triple-height lobby, and private terraces on floors 17, 60, and 76 uniquely set this commercial building apart. Beyond the green spaces on the terraces, 3 World Trade Center’s design indicated a strong commitment to sustainability. Designed to the highest energy efficiency ratings, 3WTC will be certified LEED-Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council. From using recycled rainwater in air conditioning to harnessing the energy created by descending elevators, the building has efficiency in mind throughout. Even the full-height windows are double-glazed with a specialized transparent low-E coating on the inside surface to filter sunlight and reduce energy loss without sacrificing the stunning views. 3 World Trade Center is a large-scale representation of the revitalization of Lower Manhattan – serving as a symbol for the future of the Financial District, design, and architecture.
