  • Description

    The world's tallest building project -- the twin towered World Trade centre -- is nearing completion in New York City.

    When finished the Trade centre will tower 1350 feet (411 metres) into the air -- one hundred feet more than the Empire State Building. The twin towers will have 110 storeys and house facilities for international businessmen as well as Government Agencies including the United State Bureau of Customs.

    Fifty thousand people will eventually work in the centre which will open its doors in December this year and is expected to be fully completed in 1973.

    But the Centre will only retain its title as the world's tallest building for a short time -- a 1450 feet (442 metre) building is planned for Chicago.
