World Trade Center, New York City . This model consists of 15,716 pieces. . This model took six months to complete and is my sixth skyscraper based off of Spencer Rezkalla's original design. The towers, however, actually took me two years, off-and-on, to finally get the designs right. The base was especially difficult due to its multiple levels, overall complexity, and the diversity of colors. Because of the high piece count, this is the second- largest and most expensive permanent LEGO« model I have ever built. Completed August 25, 2010. More photos on Brickshelf Construction photos here LEGO« Digital Designer files for 7 WTC, WTC Plaza, and 1&2 WTC here Completion of Complex On Januray 15, 2011, I finished the addition of 7 WTC. Thus making my World Trade Center model complete. The entire complex consists of almost 16,000 pieces! Although, compared to Spencer's and Eric Warren's versions, I suppose I used the least amount of pieces. Go figure! The former World Trade Center complex consisted of seven buildings built between 1968 and 1987. Groundbreaking of this super-block site took place on August 15, 1966. One World Trade Center (top left) was completed December 23, 1970. The roof height was 1,368 ft, while the antenna reached a height of 1,727 ft. Two World Trade Center (bottom right) was completed July 19, 1971. This twin to Tower One reached 1,362 ft; six feet shorter than 1 WTC. Situated along the east end of the complex, along Church St, are 4 WTC and 5 WTC. Both were low-rise buildings which housed things such as additional office space, an on-site mall and access to the Port Authority Transportation Hub, or PATH. Seven WTC, built between 1983 and 1987, was the last building to be completed at the former World Trade Center site. This forty-seven floor building was clad in a red granite fašade. Six WTC is a similarly-styled lowrise to 4 & 6 WTC. Looking up from West St, One World Trade Center loomed overhead. The West St entrance to 1 WTC featured an overhanging canopy. Three WTC was a twenty-one story Marriott Hotel. It was often referred to as the Marriott World Trade Center. The street-level entrance to 2 WTC along Liberty Street. The Austin J. Tobin Plaza provided a large, open space at the heart of the complex. Raised above street level, this plaza featured a large fountain, a memorial to the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing and often hosted large events such as concerts. A look at the rooftops of the Twin Towers. Though the South Tower did not boast a large radio mast, it did feature an indoor and outdoor observation deck and restaurant called Windows on the World.
