Connectivity Wireless Solutions and Cross Management Corporation are teaming up to create a state-of-the-art wireless antenna at 1 World Trade Center. As a part of the collaboration, the companies will oversee the design and engineering of the project, among other details. The companies were selected by commercial real estate giant and 1 World Trade Center operator, the Durst Organization.
“We are extremely pleased to support the 1 WTC distributed antenna system project. The rebuilding of the World Trade Center and the delivery of highly advanced communication systems serve as a reminder of our unparalleled resolve to overcome adversity as individuals and a nation,” Blake Maffei, co-founder at Connectivity Wireless, said in a statement.
A 408-foot, 758-ton spire that tops the building will serve as a world-class broadcast antennae. The spire boosted the building’s height to 1,776 feet, making it one of the tallest buildings in the world.
