One World Trade Center, simply known as 1 WTC or 1 World Trade Center (formerly named and still colloquially known as the Freedom Tower), is the lead building of the new World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan in New York City, New York. The tower will be located in the northwest corner of the World Trade Center site, and will occupy the location where the original 8-story 6 World Trade Center once stood. The north side of the tower runs between the intersection of Vesey and West streets on the northwest and the intersection of Vesey and Washington streets on the northeast, with the site of the original North Tower/1 WTC offset to the southeast. 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 will be known by its legal name of 'One World Trade Center', rather than the colloquial name 'Freedom Tower'. Upon completion, One World Trade Center will be the tallest building in the United States, standing at a height of , and among the tallest buildings in the world. - Source: Wikipedia
