4 World Trade Center (also known by its street address, 150 Greenwich Street) is a skyscraper in its final phases of construction as part of the new World Trade Center complex in New York City. It is located on the southeast corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, where the original nine-story 4 World Trade Center stood. Pritzker Prize-winning architect Fumihiko Maki was awarded the contract to design the building, which will be 978 feet (298 m) tall.[5] As of right now it is the second tallest skyscraper on the rebuilt World Trade Center site behind One World Trade Center, although Two World Trade Center and Three World Trade Center are planned to surpass the building's height upon completion.[6] The total floor space of the building is expected to include 1.8 million square feet (167,000 square meters) of office and retail space.[7] The building's groundbreaking took place in January 2008, and it is scheduled to be completed by 2013. The structural engineer for the building is Leslie E. Robertson Associates, New York City.[8] All construction is finishing up and the building is set to open within a month or so.[9]

Original building (1975–2001)

The original 4 World Trade Center was a 9-story low-rise office building completed in 1975 that was 118 ft (36 m) tall and in the southeast corner of the site, in Lower Manhattan, New York City. The building's major tenants were Deutsche Bank (Floor 4, 5, and 6) and the New York Board of Trade (Floors 7, 8, and 9). The building's side facing Liberty Street housed the entrance to The Mall at the World Trade Center on the Concourse level of the WTC. It was damaged beyond repair as a result of the September 11 attacks and was later demolished to make way for the construction of the new skyscrapers, Four World Trade Center and Three World Trade Center. 4 World Trade Center was home to five commodities exchanges on what was at the time one of the world's largest trading floors (featured in the Eddie Murphy movie Trading Places). The new Four World Trade Center and Three World Trade Center will stand where 4 World Trade Center formerly stood.

Planned occupancy

(PANYNJ) plans to lease approximately 600,766 square feet (55,700 square meters) in 150 Greenwich for its new headquarters.[6][11] PANYNJ was formerly headquartered in 1 World Trade Center before it was destroyed. The Port Authority signed a 30 year lease. The building will dedicate the space on the lower levels for use by retail businesses and also provide access to an underground "retail and transportation concourse" which will be connected to the PATH terminal at the site.[6] The city of New York also plans to lease 581,642 square feet (54,036.3 m2) in the completed building.[11]

Planned layout

The above-ground portion of the building dedicated for retail use (which consists of the ground floor, the three floors immediately above the ground floor as well as the two floors below ground), the building will accommodate offices using two distinct floor shapes. From floors 7 through 46, the typical floor space will be 36,350 square feet (3,376 square meters) in the shape of a parallelogram (which is designed to echo the configuration of the site).[6] From floors 48 through 63 the floor space will be 28,000 sq ft (2,600 square meters) in the shape of a trapezoid, shaped so that it opens toward the tip of Manhattan Island and also triangulated to face One World Trade Center. The tower will include five levels of mechanical floors.[6] The New York Power Authority selected UTC Power to provide 12 PureCell Model 400 fuel cells to will be used to provide electricity, water and heat. Combined, the systems will rank as one of the largest installations of fuel cells in the world, according to the developer.[12]


Groundbreaking took place in 2008. The building reached street level in November 2009. The safety cocoon was installed December 2010. The first glass was installed May 2011. In November 2010, three PureCell fuel cells were delivered at the World Trade Center site which together will provide about 30% of the tower’s power.[12]

On February 16, 2012, one of the building's construction crane cables snapped while lifting steel, causing the steel to fall 40 stories from the building, landing on a flat bed truck. No injuries were reported. Construction on the building eventually resumed after the accident.[13]

Four World Trade Center was topped out on June 25, 2012.[14]

As of June 14, 2013, the progress and the list of construction activities at the 4 World Trade Center site include:[15]

  • Final interior fit-out through fall 2013
  • Utility work is active along Liberty Street (inside the work site fence line)-all fencing to be removed when the building opens
  • TCO is expected in approximately October 2013
  • Steel topped out at floor 72 in spring 2012

In September 2013, it was announced that all construction fencing surrounding WTC 4 will be removed, instead of minimal removal only providing a pathway to and from the street and doors of the building. The removal of all fencing will provide pedestrian access to the Memorial Plaza, the surrounding streets, and eventually the other 5 WTC buildings.
