Thirteen years after the September 11 terrorist attack that rocked New York City, the twin towers which were destroyed from the deadly attack have been reopened for business.
The $3.9 Billion building is on the same site where 2700 lives where lost. The skyscraper has instantly become the tallest building in the United States.
The new building is constructed from steel-reinforced concrete, and is described as ‘the most secure office space in America’.
According to AP, some staffers of publishing giant Conde Nast began working at 1 World Trade Center today, making them the first commercial tenant in the building.
The building is 60% leased so far, with office space rented by advertising firm Kids Creative, investment advisor BMB Group, and office provider Servcorp.
Prior to the move, Conde Nast addressed any issues employees might have had about moving into the tower. Still some New Yorkers interviewed said there is no way they will enter the building because the wounds and fears are still fresh.
