Yes, the old one was dated almost as soon as it was built.

Thumbs up

This is what understated elegance in our skyscraper age looks like.

2 New Tenants Bring 7 WTC to Full

A British technology firm opening its first permanent U.S. office and a nonprofit centered on improving children’s lives signed deals for a total of 12,400 square feet at 7 World Trade Center, scooping up the last available smaller spaces at the tower. Those two leases come after the signing of a lease for 125,000 square feet last year at the 52-story, 6-year-old tower claimed the last of sizeable acreage in the building, which is owned by Silverstein Properties.

The two newest tenants have several things in common. Both will move onto the 46th floor in the summer, and the asking rent on each deal was $70 a square foot. One of the differences between them is that one wanted to be downtown while the other did not.

Telemetry, a London-based firm that measures the effectiveness of digital ads, signed seven-year lease for 5,400 square feet, or 13% of the floor. Originally, Telemetry wanted to locate in midtown south, near many other tech firms, but it also wanted to occupy recently built space, according to the company’s broker, Sam Seiler of CBRE Group Inc. An extensive search turned up nothing that fit the bill. However, when Telemetry executives visited 7 World Trade and saw the design and the views, they were hooked.

“It is their first permanent office in the U.S., so they wanted something that made a statement,” Mr. Seiler said. “They wanted something splashy.”

In contrast, Casey Family Services, which provides family advocacy, adoption and foster care services, wanted to stay downtown. With its lease at One Liberty Plaza nearly up and no additional room available there, the agency inked a six-year deal for 7,000 square feet. It, too, was drawn to the views, as well as the building’s LEED status, said its broker Bill Iacovelli, also of CBRE.

Silverstein Properties was represented by CBRE brokers Brad Gerla and Christie Harle.

Those striking features mentioned in that article will continue to lure prospective tenants to the site. Glad the building has finally reached capacity; to me that's a sign of good things to come.

The new WTC might finally be the World Trade Center. The original was built for that purpose also, but it seemed that more U.S. based companies occupied it than those overseas. I think the largest tenants will have to be foreign-based to help NYC become more of a global city than it already is.

What are you talking about? The old World Trade Center had tenants from the rest of the world too. Including Fuji Bank, Taipei Bank, Global Crossing Holdings, and Baltic Oil Corporation to name a few. This was the exact reason why the original World Trade Center was destroyed, because it was an area for world trade, and it was till it was destroyed. The new one will have the same job. That is why the World Trade Center needs to be protected.

Watch Modern Marvels. The Original WTC had more US-based businesses than foreign ones. This was a main reason it were attacked. It represented American commerce more than world commerce. Just take a look at which kind of firms were the largest tenants of each building starting with the former WTC 7

Here are a list of tenants for the Twins

I agree with you about the firms you listed, but they weren't anywhere near as numerous as those that were American.

I'm just Curious, but I've been noticing in a few pictures that people have been up in the upper floors in the building is there a public viewing deck in 7 WTC?

No but there are events held on the upper floors from time to time and there is a church open to the public located on one of the uppermost floors.

I absolutely loved the old building, but this building is a complete stunner that amazed me when I visited the WFC in mid 2010. Even though this is puny compared to the other WTC buildings, it looked absolutely massive from below.
