[文摘] FREEDOM TOWER IS NOW THE TALLEST BUILDING IN THE US

FREEDOM TOWER IS NOW THE TALLEST BUILDING IN THE US – THE US marked the 11th anniversary of Al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon yesterday in a subdued and solemn low key ceremony. About 1,000 relatives of those who perished gathered around the pools where the Twin Towers stood for the alphabetically ordered reading, which took more than three hours. In its place, rising steadily is the Freedom Tower or One World Trade Centre. It represents the American spirit of defiance and freedom. A few months ago the almost complete tower became the tallest building in New York and third tallest building in the world. When complete, One World Trade Centre will replace the twin towers at a height of 541m. The project is much more than steel and concrete to the American people, it is a symbol of success for the nation. The Freedom Tower is due to be completed in 2013.
