Facts

  • With 2.2 million square feet of gross floor area, One Liberty Plaza offers nearly an acre of space on each column-free floor.
  • One Liberty Plaza is prominently situated midway between the Wall Street area and The World Financial Center.
  • In the weeks immediately following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 across the street, the Brooks Brothers department store on the lower floors was converted into a morgue.
