One World Trade Center - level 2

07-11-2014 15:00

People destroyed the Twin Towers 13 years ago. Now, the new building called the One World Trade Center is finished. It is a 104-storey skyscraper.

About 170 employees of a company already are moving in. They will occupy floors 20 to 44. The publishing company owns The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and other magazines.

Another 3,000 people will move in in early 2015. The building cost 3.9 billion dollars to make. People planned to finish it by 2006, but there were some delays.

Difficult words: storey (floor), occupy (have a place of business), delay (when there is a delay, something is finished later than planned).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
