The design of the last tower to be built on the 16-acre Ground Zero plot in New York has been unveiled by its developers.

He told Wired: ‘On one hand it’s about being respectful and about completing the frame around the memorial, and on the other hand it’s about revitalizing downtown Manhattan and making it a lively place to live and work.’
