One World Trade Center in N.Y. Now Tallest U.S. Building
Today, The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat deemed One World Trade Center in New York the tallest building in the United States. Knocked down a peg, status-wise, is the Willis Tower, formerly named Sears Tower, which had been the country's tallest building since it was completed in 1974. At question for the council was whether the 408-foot-tall needle atop One World Trade Center should be counted in its total height of 1776 feet. Previously, I wrote about souvenir replicas of the Willis Tower and One World Trade Center.
