Once completed, the 1,776-foot tower will be the tallest in the U.S., but it won’t be the highest in the world.In comparison, the developer of the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, said it cost $1.5 billion to construct.Most of the cost overruns are due to the security measures being taken in the design of the building which sits on a site that has been bombed twice by terrorists.

Conde Nast has already signed a lease to move its headquarters to more than 1 million square feet at 1 World Trade Center.
