The new WTC (1 WTC) or One World Trade Center (its old name was Freedom Tower) is one of the new tower in New York City. It's constructing on the place of the 9/11 terrorists attack like a symbol on the counter terrorism. This monument is a very famous tourist place in the big apple. The construction of the 1 WTC progress along the month in the middle of the city.

One World Trade Center (in NYC), more simply known as 1 WTC, and previously known as the Freedom Tower, is the lead building of the new World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan of New York City. The 104-story supertall skyscraper is being constructed in the northwest corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, occupying the location where the original 8-story 6 World Trade Center once stood. The building is bound to the west by West Street, to the north by Vesey Street, to the south by Fulton Street, and to the east by Washington Street. Construction on below-ground utility relocations, footings, and foundations for the building began on April 27, 2006. On March 30, 2009, the Port Authority confirmed that the building would be known by its legal name of One World Trade Center, rather than the colloquial name, Freedom Tower.
At the time of its completion in 2013, One World Trade Center will be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere by pinnacle height and the third-tallest building in the world, with its spire reaching a symbolic 1,776 feet (541.3 m) in reference to the year of American independence. However, its roof height, at 1,368 feet (417.0 m), will still be 82 feet (25.0 m) shorter than the roof of Chicago's Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). The new World Trade Center complex will also feature three other high-rise office buildings, located along Greenwich Street, and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, located just south of One World Trade Center, where the Twin Towers once stood. The construction is part of an effort to memorialize and rebuild after the original World Trade Center complex was destroyed during the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Le One World Trade Center (parfois abrégé en 1 WTC), anciennement nommée Freedom Tower ou tour de la Liberté, est la tour centrale du nouveau complexe du World Trade Center, qui vise à combler l’immense espace laissé par l’anéantissement du précédent complexe lors des attentats du 11 septembre 2001 à New York City (NYC). Situé au sud de l’île de Manhattan (Lower Manhattan), ce site aussi appelé Ground zero a une superficie totale de 65 000 m2.
La tour est l’œuvre des architectes Skidmore, Owings and Merrill de Chicago. Elle culminera à 1 776 pieds, rappelant l’année d’indépendance des États-Unis, soit 541 mètres et sera située au coin nord-ouest du site. Les travaux, qui ont débuté en avril 2006, devraient s’achever en 2013. La tour sera composée de 108 étages. Depuis décembre 2011, la tour est la plus haute de Lower Manahttan.
Ce nouveau complexe sera composé de quatre autres tours : Two World Trade Center, Three World Trade Center et Four World Trade Center. La dernière, Seven World Trade Center, est construite depuis 2006.
