Most Expensive Skyscraper – There will be only a monument to the rebirth of New York, but the One World Trade Center will also be the most expensive skyscraper in the world. According to the latest calculations the cost of the building to be built at Ground Zero has risen to $ 3.8 billion, 700 million more, according to The Wall Street Journal, the initial estimate. The process of construction of the skyscraper, destined now to become the most expensive in the world, was dotted with many problems that have pushed up the price. To understand just a simple comparison: the Burj Dubai, the tallest tower in the world, in Dubai, has cost $ 1.5 billion. Once completed the One World Trade Center will still be the tallest skyscraper in the Big Apple.
We are accustomed to very high costs for prestigious homes in New York, but what is striking here is the price that the city will pay to rebuild a building symbol of rebirth, there where the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11.
The reasons are many of the cost so high. First, the cost increase from the same site where the skyscraper will be built over the years has come to exceed one billion dollars. To this is added the delays which have pushed up the cost. In the more they will put in place all necessary security measures to protect the building from any possible problem, because with a height of 1776 feet (approximately 634 meters) will be the tallest in New York, but not of it.
The decision was the height representing the year of the independence of the United States: a symbolic building for many aspects that will be located next to the Memorial on 11 September.
The work should be completed in 2013, including the Freedom Tower, the skyscraper as it is called, hoping not to have to back your wallet.
