Stunning Jaw Dropping Video Shows Final Piece Being Lifted Atop One World Trade Center
The new “One World Trade Center” building in New York City now officially reaches a stunning 1776 ft. Here is the video of the raising of the Spire that will bring chills to your skin. The video is from a GoPro HD camera that was attached to the final piece of the spire, providing a bird’s eye view as it was lifted to the top.
The spire will serve as a world-class broadcast antenna.
With the beacon at its peak to ward off aircraft, the spire will provide public transmission services for television and radio broadcast channels that were destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001, along with the trade center towers.
Overlooking the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the high-rise is scheduled to open for business in 2014.
