New York's NEW Tallest Building

Sorry, Empire State Building. You are now officially the second tallest once again!

Sometime today the new One World Trade Center eclipsed the Empire State Building as New York City's tallest building. Even though it is currently only 1,250 feet tall, at completion it will be 1,776 feet tall.

Thanks to Athinaios for the great, evolving model, which was last updated on April 28, 2012. I've added it to the following 3D model collections: 2010s, Americana
