Creative Edge designs, manufactures cornerstones at One World Trade Center New York

Creative Edge Master Shop designed and manufactured the five granite cornerstones at the new One World Trade Center building in New York City.

This building replaces the World Trade Center that was destroyed in the 2001 terrorist attacks. Upon completion, this building will be the tallest on the New York City skyline, the tallest skyscraper in the US, and third tallest building in the world as of end-2013.

The building, developed by Silverstein Properties, follows the design of David Childs of Skidmore Owings and Merrill architects. At 1,176 feet, the building contains 104 floors, with mixed transportation, retail, commercial, government and residential space. At this time, all space has been committed. One World Trade Center is scheduled to open in late 2013.  Originally nicknamed Freedom Tower, the official name henceforth will be One World Trade Center.

Creative Edge created the cornerstone pieces for the building from black granite, white marble and stainless steel. They bear the name of the project’s developer, Silverstein Properties. The blocks are two-inch thick, waterjet cut, with a single intricate stainless steel graphic inlay.
