After a standstill lasting several months, construction of World Trade Center Tower 3 continues under the leadership of Roger & Sons. Owing to its decades of experience in highrise construction, Doka was secured as a reliable formwork partner for World Trade Center Tower 3. Upon completion, the tower also known by the name of its address, 175 Greenwich Street, will boast an overall height of more than 1,171 feet.
For his design of the 71-story tower, British architect Richard Rogers of the architectural firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partner was awarded the Pritzker Prize. The building, planned to be the third-highest in the World Trade Center-area, is characterized by a design that combines concrete and steel. The core, made of reinforced concrete, is enveloped by the silhouette of a steel structure and the facade consists of glass. Most floors will accommodate offices. Shops and technical facilities are slated to occupy the podium, which will consist of the first eight levels. A massive reinforced steel core with built-in lifts and staircases dominates the interior of the building. This structural concept meets highest requirements for safety and all other sister towers of the World Trade Center are built based on the same principle. World Trade Center Tower 3 is scheduled to open in 2017.
