Silverstein Properties’ 4 World Trade Center will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, making the 978-foot Fumihiko Maki-designed tower the first building in the Ground Zero complex to officially open.

“We want people to come and experience this both as a great office building but also a sense of accomplishment that we’ve really turned the corner on rebuilding the World Trade Center and creating a better New York,” Janno Lieber, head of World Trade Center construction for the developer, told the New York Post.

But it’s still going to be a while before actual tenants move into the building, according to the Post. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, for example, which lost its headquarters at the twin towers in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, will only move into its 600,000-square-foot space in early 2015.

The complex’s tallest tower, 1 World Trade Center, is being developed by the Durst Organization and is expected to open sometime next year, according to the Post. [NYP]  – Hiten Samtani
