#12: World Trade Center – The Reconstruction

The Question

Dear Shaun,

The rebuilding of the World Trade Center took center stage in the media for a while during the architecture contest. However, after the winner was chosen all media relating to the new memorial disappeared.

my questions are: How is the construction going? when is it suppose to be completed? are there any pictures online?

The Answer

The corner stone for the new World Trade Center tower, named “Freedom Tower” was laid in a ceremony with the Governor of New York and the Mayor of New York City on July 4, 2004.

The work is still underway for not only Freedom Tower, but also a WTC memorial. The design for the memorial was just chosen from thousands of applicants on Dec. 16, 2004.

I will direct you to the web site that holds the answers and information, rather than duplicating information here:


I hope this answers your questions.
