It is. 40 Wall street is ~920ft and 70 Pine Street is ~950ft, and both are skinny with spires/crowns. Compared to those, 4 WTC is massive.

Condé Nast to share 1 WTC with US Army officials
By Steve Cuozzo

December 9, 2013

"Condé Nast superstar editors Anna Wintour and Graydon Carter will be sharing their glamorous new 1 World Trade Center digs with US Army sandhogs.

The US Army Corp of Engineers, as well as the US Customs and Border Protection agency and the federal General Services Administration, will move into the iconic tower in 2015, according to a source briefed on the moves.

They will occupy 268,000 square feet of space, which the GSA leased last year from 1 WTC’s owners, the Port Authority and the Durst Organization.

The GSA is expected to announce the tenants later today. While the GSA lease, which got a big push from Sen. Chuck Schumer, is no secret, it wasn’t known until now exactly which governmental units would take the space.

Conde Nast is the largest tenant in the tower with more than 1.1 million square feet and China’s Beijing Vantone took 200,000 feet. The 3 million square-foot tower is just over half-leased."

First post, been reading you guys for a while.

Loving this building, of course. Can't wait for that darn elevator to be gone! And hopefully with the other buildings going up they'll start calling it the WTC site again instead of Ground Zero.

Welcome to the forums! That's the problem, some do call it World Trade Center, as it's intended, others insist on calling it "Ground Zero" for whatever reason.

Yes its a good looking tower with a good height, but it does not do justice to the sentimental value the new WTC deserved.
It should have been a jawbreaking manmade marvel like the twins were in their era, but this freedom tower does not, and therefore it think this tower failed.
Perhaps when 2 and 3 are finished the whole composition will be better, but even then i think WTC 2 will be the real eyecather and thats not what NY deserved.
Too bad, still ok, but nowhere near the impact it should have had.

You're entitled to your own opinion, however I think it's a great replacement for the complex. At least it's something.

Ground Zero no longer exists. It is the New World Trade Center, unofficially or officially, however one may want to see it. #1 is almost finished and is going to kick some major ass, and it will be even better when the others get under way. #4 is not too shabby either. It is back! No matter what it is called. Anything but ground zero.

I'm not sure how I will like the interior of the building. I'm not to ecstatic about the lobby. Don't get me wrong, it's nice, but the white marble, tight walkways and blastwalls kind take away from it's beauty.

The office floors, as I've said before, have some large office space, much bigger than I would have thought.
