Spire On Top Of One World Trade Center Test Lit For The First Time

Inside Of Four WTC Visitors Can Experience A Deliberate Sense Of Calm

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The city experienced a major milestone on Friday night when the spire on the top of One World Trade Center was test lit for the first time.

The spire and beacon stand 408 feet tall. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Friday the beacon is packed with 288 50-watt LED modules that can be seen up to 50 miles.

The LED modules produce 288,000 lumens of light.

Inside of Four World Trade Center waterfalls rushed and blue skies soared over the depths of a forest, creating a deliberate sense of calm, CBS 2′s Alice Gainer reported.

“If you look closely you won’t be able to observe the fact that we’re directly across the street from the 9/11 memorial museum and everything that entails,” developer Larry Silverstein said.

MORE than 12 years after a terrorist attack shook the world New York City can again gaze upon the World Trade Center, after the first test of the new tower’s spire lit up Manhattan.

The developers of the new World Trade Center tested the lights on the spire of the building on Friday night (local time), as hundreds of red, white and blue LED modules illuminated lower Manhattan.

The glow of the modules can be seen for up to 50 miles (80km), according to the Port Authority.

One World Trade Center remains under construction and is expected to open next year.

The new World Trade Center stands as a monument to those killed in the terrorist attacks.
