ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER
With the push of a button, Telemundo 47 / WNJU became the first Tri-State television station to officially resume over-the-air transmissions from One World Trade Center.
ION Media, together with The Durst Organization and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, announced today that it will relocate its New York City broadcast television operations to One World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan.
ION Media’s portfolio of TV networks, including ION Television, ION Life and Qubo, will begin broadcasting from the tallest building in the western hemisphere in the fourth quarter of 2017, providing New York and the tri-state area with a perfect 360-degree signal from a state-of-the-art omni-directional antenna. This provides the ideal high-power UHF frequency footprint for high-definition broadcasting, as well as future wireless spectrum applications.
Another major broadcaster is switching signals from the Empire State Building to One World Trade Center: ION Media, the nation’s largest broadcast station group, with 60 stations reaching 98 million homes.

The Durst Organization and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey today announced the opening of One World Commons, a full-service amenity space exclusively for the tenants of One World Trade Center. One World Commons, located on the 64th floor and powered by Convene, will serve as a world-class corporate and social hub, a “third-space” purpose-designed for workers to get away from the traditional office, but to also foster workplace creativity, collaboration, learning & development, and ultimately – a sense of place and community.
This coming Monday, tenants of 1 World Trade Center will officially be able to grab a cup of coffee and play a round of pool 64 floors above the ground.
The Durst Organization this week wrapped up the final touches on the 3-million-square-foot tower’s amenity floor, which is open to all tenants in the building. While they’re not necessarily the first to undertake this type of communal space, the story of this floor dates back to the early days of the tower.
The soaring spires, the sloping shores, the straitjacket of the street grid — many things give form to the great metropolis. The skyline may be our most recognizable feature, despite how unrecognizable it can often be.
Its transformation has been nothing less than astonishing over the past decade. Even when it seems as if there were nowhere left to go, the city, with its manifold appetites, could not be contained.
It is peculiar to consider that you can actually go to work in the Empire State Building or One World Trade Center, two of the world’s most famous skyscrapers.
Two summers ago, executives from the Durst Organization started to notice that tenants on upper floors of 1 World Trade Center began to mingle when they waited for the elevator. Because the 3-million-square-foot tower is 90 floors, any occupant of 65 or higher has to switch at the sky lobby on the 64th level.
Durst executives found this getting to know each other stuff to be so important that they decided to scrap an earlier plan to lease the 31,288-square-foot 64th floor and instead turn it into a place in which tenants could gather.
NEW YORK CITY—Another media tenant has signed onto One World Trade Center—and this time, the occupier is a firm that caters to the millennial generation.
The Durst Organization and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have signed a 36,000-square-foot lease with the news outlet Mic for the entire 82nd floor of One World Trade Center. The property is now 67% leased.
