When completed, the WTC Tower 2 will be located on the east side of Greenwich Street, across the street from the original location of the Twin Towers that were destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The 79-story WTC Tower 2 building was designed by Foster and Partners. The building will have a height of 1,270 feet (387 m), with an antenna that creates a total height of 1,350 feet (411 m).
