The new World Trade Center has since been undergoing redevelopment. Just like the entire World Trade Center redevelopment project, the fourth and final skyscraper, Two World Trade Center, was mired in controversies and delays. Developer Larry Silverstein, who leased the Twin Towers before they were destroyed, played a major role in the redevelopment of the entire site. He had commissioned Lord Norman Foster years ago to design Two World Trade Center. Then there were delays and the need for tenants.
James Murdoch of Fox and Newscorp was a willing anchor tenant but did not particularly care for the Foster design, according to Wired, believing it more suited to financial companies than to media companies. Danish architect Bjarke Ingels was brought in, and his stair-like building design won over.
Two World Trade Center will stand at 1,340 feet and would today be the third tallest building in Manhattan. It will have an area of 2.8 million square feet and is scheduled to be completed by September 2021, two decades after the attacks.
