175 Greenwich Street is the address for a new skyscraper approved for construction as part of the World Trade Center reconstruction in New York City.[1] The office building has also been referred to as Three World Trade Center[1] and will be on the east side of Greenwich Street, across the street from the original location of the twin towers that were destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. Pritzker Prize-winning architect Lord Richard Rogers (Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners) was awarded the contract to design the building, which will be 1,155 feet (352 m) tall. The building slightly resembles the John Hancock Center in Chicago due to its visible belt trusses. The four spires in the design would give the building a pinnacle height of 1,240 feet (378 m).[2] The total floor space of the building is anticipated to include 2 million square feet (186,000 square meters) of office and retail space. The building's groundbreaking took place in January 2008, and it is scheduled to be completed by 2014.[3][4] The structural engineer for the building is WSP.[5]

Upon completion, 175 Greenwich Street's pinnacle height will be taller than the Empire State Building's roof (381 m) and it will become the fourth tallest building in New York City as measured to its pinnacle.

Future

On May 11, 2009, it was announced that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was seeking to reduce 175 Greenwich Street to a "stump" building of approximately four stories.[6] The overall plan, which also calls for a similar reduction in height for 200 Greenwich Street and the cancellation of World Trade Center Tower 5, would halve the amount of office space available in the fully reconstructed World Trade Center to 5 million square feet (465,000 m²).[6] One World Trade Center and 150 Greenwich Street would be the only two buildings to be constructed as previously planned.[6] The agency cited the recession and disagreements with developer Larry Silverstein as reasons for the proposed reduction.[6]

Silverstein is opposed to the plan, and filed a notice of dispute on July 7, 2009. By doing so, the development firm began a two-week period during which renegotiated settlements and a binding arbitration regarding the construction of the four World Trade Center towers can be made.[7] Silverstein Properties, which has paid the Port Authority over $2.75 billion in financing, noted the organization’s inability to meet construction obligations in its official complaint. The development firm has proposed further government intervention in the project as a way of settling the dispute.[7]
