Offices Old NYC World Trade Center Twin Towers 1.0

Towers 1 and 2 from the old New York City World Trade Center Complex.

  1. Monty

    The World Trade Center Twin Towers were landmarks in New York city skyline. Both had 110 floors (which was a record until Burj Khalifa). Each tower had 3,800,000 square feet (350,000 m2) of office space. Altogether the entire complex (with 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 WTC) of seven buildings had 11,200,000 square feet (1,040,000 m2) of space.

    1WTC, the north tower was 526m (1727 ft) high with its spire, 417m (1368ft) high without. It was the headquarters of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
    2WTC, the south tower was 415.0 m (1,362 ft) high and had an observatory deck on the 107th and 110th floor AKA "Top of the World observation deck".

    On a typical weekday 50,000 people worked in the towers with another 200,000 passing through as visitors. The complex was so large that it had its own zip code: 10048. The towers offered expansive views from the observation deck atop the South Tower and the Windows on the World restaurant on top of the North Tower. The Twin Towers became known worldwide, appearing in numerous movies and television shows as well as on postcards and other merchandise, and became seen as a New York icon, in the same league as the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and the Statue of Liberty.

    About the model:

    Even if there already is a "twin towers mod" by microsphera, it wasn't finished and didn't have details. On Preyfr60's suggestion, I created new models.

    This mod presents itself as two different towers that you can place like you want: north and south tower.

    Functionality: (Thanks Preyfr60!)
    Both are offices with a landmark effect and gives a holiday bonus.

    You can find them in the "Decoration => Landmarks => Custom Content" Menu.

    This mod it's more like a collaboration since I got lots of help from other modders, Special Thanks to

    Preyfr60 for creating a more functional CLASS file, otherwise you'd got another regular office tower. Also thanks for writing most of this entry, testing the mod, give suggestions.

    Snick25. For testing the mod and taking awesome screenshots of it in his CXL New York City.

    Altiris for always helping me and specially for adding the helicopter animation on the South Tower helipad. The car parking on the North Tower is also based on one of his actor sample files.

    Look how cool it is!:

    Wow. Great work! If only there was a mod with building 3 which is a 22 story Marriott Hotel on west street (between the north & south tower) Building 4, and 5, both are kinda L shaped at 9 stories (Building 4 is just east of the south tower, building 5 is at the northeast corner of the plaza). Building 6, which is right next to the north tower at 6 stories, and building 7 which is a 47 story building across the street just north of the plaza. And Cant forget the wonderful plaza with the cool sculptures on it, which all buildings except building 7 stand on... That would require a ton of work, and i have no skill on how to achieve such a project, but it would be an awesome project!

    We often discussed that the towers have been too tall
    for International Style buildings, so it was only 4 stars in design. But first, guys, look at the rooftop, second,
    watch the high detail level, that will explain why I rated it
    nonetheless 5 stars!
