ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER, NEW YORK

An icon of the New York Skyline

Standing as a shining beacon for the new Downtown, and a bold addition to the skyline, One World Trade Center is safe, sustainable, and artistically dynamic. Soaring to a symbolic 1,776 feet — it is the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building, and already an iconic New York landmark.

The tower ascends 69 stories — its edges chamfered back to form 8 isosceles triangles, a perfect octagon at center.   It culminates in a square, glass parapet at the crown, its crystalline form creating a vibrant effect, as light refracts like a kaleidoscope, changing throughout the day.

Whilst attending the One World Players Party, you will enjoy views of the iconic, New York City Skyline through the floor to ceiling windows that envelop the breathtaking, 64th floor Sky Lobby venue.

One World Trade Center
285 Fulton St,
New York, NY 10007

Event proceeds will benefit the National Tennis Foundation and other ATP / WTA Player Charities.
