Silverstein Properties’ 3 World Trade Center is getting a little haircut.

The tower, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, was slated to be 1,168 feet tall, according to New York YIMBY, but will now rise to a height of 1,079 feet, as rooftop spires will no longer be part of the plans.

The developer financed the construction of the 2.5 million-square-foot, 80-story building through $1.6 billion worth of tax-free Liberty Bonds.  Tenants will include advertising firm GroupM, which is taking more than 500,000 square feet of space. The building features a rooftop terrace for 3 World Trade Center tenants.

The tower currently stands at 502 feet, and is expected to be completed in early 2018. The developer is also building 2 World Trade Center, for which it is seeking a partner. That tower, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, will serve as the headquarters for 21st Century Fox and News Corp. [NY YIMBY]Hiten Samtani
