One World Trade Center to become tallest tower in Western Hemisphere

UPDATE: CEREMONY POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER

NEW YORK (PIX11)- We’ve become used to arching our necks to check out the progress of construction for One World Trade Center.

After more than six years of construction, the final sections will be raised on Monday, bringing the building to its full height. Once the pieces are officially installed, 1 WTC will become the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. The last sections will bring the building to its iconic height of 1,776 feet.

Gorgeous views from the newly opened observation deck inside One World Trade Center have stolen the downtown spotlight recently.

On Sunday New Yorkers focused on the final piece missing from the Freedom Tower, or according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the final two pieces.

On Monday construction crews at the 16 acre site will raise the last two sections of a 408 foot spire to the top of this already historic building.

New Yorkers have watched the process of construction with curious eyes as it became the tallest building in New York City on April 30th of last year.
