Wikipedia: Two World Financial Center Location West Street between Liberty and Vesey Streets on the Hudson (Battery Park City)New York, New York, USA Constructed1986 Height 645 ft Stories 44 Architect Haines Lundberg Waehler, Cesar Pelli & Associates Structural Engineers Thornton-Tomasetti Engineers Cost $800 million Two World Financial Center is one of the largest skyscrapers in New York City, located on West Street between Liberty and Vesey Streets in the Financial District of the New York City borough of Manhattan. Rising 645 feet, the building is the second tallest of the four buildings in the World Financial Center complex that stands in southwest Manhattan. It is similar in design to Three World Financial Center, except that its roof is dome-shaped rather than 3 WFC's solid pyramid design. The building is home to Commerzbank, Deloitte & Touche, Merrill Lynch, Nomura Group, State Street Corporation and Thacher Proffitt & Wood, LLP, among other companies. It is an example of postmodern architecture, as designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates, and contains over 2,491,000 ft² (231,000 m²) of rentable office area. It connects to the rest of the World Financial Center complex through a courtyard leading to the Winter Garden, a dramatic glass-and-steel public space with a 120-foot vaulted ceiling under which there is an assortment of trees and plants, including sixteen 12-meter palm trees from the Mojave Desert. It is notably similar in design to One Canada Square in London's Canary Wharf development. Canary Wharf was, like the World Financial Center, a project by Canadian developers Olympia and York, and One Canada Square was designed by the same architects. Two World Financial Center was severely damaged by the falling debris when the World Trade Center towers collapsed due to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The building had to be closed for repairs from September 11, 2001 until May 2002 as a result of damage sustained in the terrorist attacks.
