Six World Trade Center was the U.S. Customs House: a 537,693-square-foot (49,953-m²), 9-story building in Lower Manhattan, New York City, part of the World Trade Center. Construction finished in 1975. It was destroyed on September 11, 2001, from the collapse of 1 World Trade Center and 2 World Trade Center.

Debris from the North tower fell on and around 6 WTC, digging a deep crater into the building's basement. The building's ruins were demolished to make way for reconstruction. AMEC Construction handled the demolition,[1] in which the building was weakened and then pulled down with cables. There is no clear 6 World Trade Center in the new World Trade Center masterplan, although either 99 Church Street Tower or Goldman Sachs may be named 6 WTC in the future.
