408-Foot Broadcasting Tower to Top One World Trade Center

When completed, the building's broadcast center is projected to generate more than $10 million annually by broadcasting TV and FM radio signals. The building's construction has reached the 92nd floor.

One World Trade Center, the building being constructed at the site of New York City's twin towers, will have a 408-foot broadcasting spire at its top when completed, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced March 6. A broadcast center to be built at the top of the 104-story building is projected to generate more than $10 million annually by broadcasting TV and FM radio signals.

The building's construction has reached the 92nd floor. It will be the Western Hemisphere's tallest building, according to the authority.

The Durst Organization will oversee construction and operation of the broadcast facility. Its spire will reach an ultimate height of 1,776 feet.

"Broadcasting from the top of One World Trade Center is both an economic and symbolic achievement," said Jody Durst, president of The Durst Organization. "It's hard to imagine a more appropriate setting for an ultra-modern broadcast facility than the pinnacle of the world's most iconic building. At the same time, the facility would serve as a source of ongoing revenue for the property."

"This expanded use of One World Trade Center makes perfect sense," said authority Executive Director Patrick Foye. "The Durst company brings great experience and expertise in managing broadcast facilities, and their team understands the emerging dynamics in the broadcast marketplace over recent years. With an ideal operator in place, the center would help Lower Manhattan reclaim its status as one of the city's elite broadcast venues."

One World Trade Center will be managed, operated and leased by The Durst Organization, with Cushman & Wakefield is serving as leasing and marketing agents for the building's office space. The building incorporates environmentally sensitive features based on LEED CS Gold criteria established by the US Green Buildings Council; the authority says it will offer access to natural light, improved indoor air quality, and lower energy and operating costs.
