Standing proudly at 1,776 feet as the tallest building in America, One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower) is a beautifully menacing addition to the NYC skyline. The 104-story skyscraper is set to house offices, world-class restaurants, and a public observation deck. In honor of its official opening, Manhattan luxury apartment broker Platinum Properties is giving you a preview of the businesses who have started their move into the 3-million-square-foot space.
The publishing giant Condé Nast, owner of The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Vogue, GQ, and a number of other influential publications, made its move into the Freedom Tower on Monday, November 3, signaling the building’s official opening. The company is relocating from its Times Square offices to fill floors 20 to 44.
