Designed by Fumihiko Maki of the Tokyo-based architectural firm Maki & Associates, 4 World Trade Center (150 Greenwich Street) was the first building to open in the new WTC complex. It tops out at 977 feet and 72 stories. One critic called it "shimmering perfection," and the American Institute of Architects honored it in its annual awards. Tenants include the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The skyscraper towers above the site of the 9/11 Memorial Plaza and the 9/11 Museum in lower Manhattan.
