Six World Trade Center was the U.S. Customs House: a 537,693-square-foot (49,953-m²), 8-story building in Lower Manhattan, New York City, part of the World Trade Center. Construction finished in 1973. It was also the building in the World Trade Center that had the least number of floors. From the Austin J. Tobin Plaza level, on which the main structure was built, it had a height of 92 ft (28 m) but was 105 ft (32 m) above actual ground level. It was destroyed on September 11, 2001.
The building's ruins were demolished to make way for reconstruction. AMEC Construction handled the demolition, in which the building was weakened and then pulled down with cables. The new One World Trade Center stands at the site where 6 World Trade Center once stood. There is no clearly defined 6 World Trade Center in the new World Trade Center master plan, although a proposed performing arts center designed by Frank Gehry could be named 6 World Trade Center in the future.
