One World Trade Center, more simply known as 1 WTC, and formerly known as the Freedom Tower, is the lead building of the new World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan of New York City. The 105-story supertall skyscraper is being constructed in the northwest corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, occupying the location where the original 8-story 6 World Trade Center once stood. The building is bound to the west by West Street, to the north by Vesey Street, to the south by Fulton Street, and to the east by Greenwich Street. Construction on below-ground utility relocations, footings, and foundations for the building began on April 27, 2006.[7] On March 30, 2009, the Port Authority confirmed that the building would be known by its legal name of One World Trade Center, rather than the colloquial name, Freedom Tower.

Upon its completion in 2013, One World Trade Center will be the tallest building in the United States and among the tallest in the world, with its radio antenna reaching a symbolic height of 1,776 feet (541.3 m) in reference to the year of American independence.[8][9] The new World Trade Center complex will also feature three other high-rise office buildings, located along Greenwich Street, and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, located just south of One World Trade Center. The construction is part of an effort to memorialize and rebuild the original World Trade Center, which was destroyed during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Like Valter has pointed out, it is a bit tilted to the left. Again, my eyes play tricks with me. The two eyes look the samething in different directions due to double vision.
