One World Trade Center

Project Overview :

Working with Tishman Construction, Garden State utilized three full time survey crews providing horizontal and vertical survey control, layout, as-built surveys, utility surveys and monitoring services.

Tower One is the tallest building in the United States. Rising 1,776 feet above street level, 69 office floors rise above a 187-foot concrete base to an elevation of 1,150 feet. The tower is topped by two television broadcast floors, mechanical floors, a communications platform ring above the parapet, a 2-story enclosed observation deck, and a 408-foot cable-stayed antenna.

Other key elements include: 2.6 million sq. ft. of office space, tenant amenity spaces, restaurants, below-grade retail and parking, access to the PATH, subways, and the World Financial Center. The below grade concourses will include approximately 55,000 square feet of retail space and connect to an extensive transportation and retail network that includes 13 subway lines, PATH commuter trains to New Jersey and possible future train connections to Long Island and the airports.

The building will use the latest green building technologies including renewable energy, interior day lighting, reuse of rainwater, and recycling of construction debris and materials. Construction costs are estimated at $3.5 billion.
