DISCLAIMER: I built this series of buildings as a tribute to 9/11 victims, families and survivors. Please do NOT disrespect this project or post any hateful comments. Any suspicious and/or rude comments will be deleted and the account will be reported immediately.




Hello everybody,
I'm sure you guys remember my Original World Trade Center Project. As you guys probably noticed, the scale was a bit off. So, I present to you the New World Trade Center, at a 1:2 scale! I decided to build this project at a 1:2 scale so it looks realistic yet is contained within the height limit.

More than 14 years ago, an unexpected disaster occurred on a gorgeous September morning. It was so crisp and clear; there just was no way. That is, that it was an accident. A presumed accident. A plane had reportedly crashed into one of the two World Trade Center towers in New York City. Flabbergasted and perplexed, citizens of Lower Manhattan captured the gaping hole. That's why so many were able to capture the second plane hitting the Southern Twin Tower, then realizing this was a premeditated attack. A tragedy turned into a calamity into a catastrophe as the Pentagon was hit, a plane crashed in Pennsylvania, and the Twin Towers collapsed. 2,983 people died.

This is my memorial to victims, families, and survivors of 9/11 in or near Manhattan's World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Washington, DC, Shanksville, PA, or one of the four hijacked planes.

This map includes all of the planned and confirmed features of the New World Trade Center compound, including:
1 World Trade Center (the triangularly chamfered building)
2 World Trade Center (the stepped, stair-like building)
3 World Trade Center (the triple-prism, boxy building)
4 World Trade Center (the halfway-sliced building)
9/11 Memorial (Twin Pools at the footprints of the Twin Towers)
9/11 Museum (Museum containing artifacts from the WTC)

VIDEO: I will make a video soon, just be patient.

RESOURCE PACK: Modern HD 1.8

SCREENSHOTS: Thank you to lordsina for the screenshots!

SHADERS: SEUS v10.1 Ultra DOF


RIP to all 2,983 people who died in the tragedy of September 11, 2001.



Never forget!

It's really good! Check out my project please! I've built 1WTC in 1:1. What do you think?
I should tell you, since World Trade Center 3 was released not too long ago, I was wondering if an update would come really soon.

In all honesty, I kinda find my current model of the New WTC to be obsolete. I may try to start from scratch, but to be honest, I’m quite busy these days......and off to college in less than a month. I’ll see what I can do though—I don’t like letting people down...
I actually made a mistake in my comment before, I should've told you I'm no rush-a-person guy which is highly immature. All I can say is, take your time, and of course, good luck in college good gentleman.

Thanks dude, college is eating me alive right now so yeah.
So the Perelman Arts Center has resumed construction, are you gonna build it?
Can you add 5 and 7 WTC? I'm looking for a complete complex with the updated 2 WTC design.

7 WTC is already there; I chose not to add 5 WTC because it most likely won't be built due to the expansion of Liberty Park.
Wow really nice :)

Hey BOSS, the Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts and Center concept design was unveiled sometime in September 2016.
How bout you add this to your New WTC build?
There's a lot of concept arts of it going around and it might be tricky to find them.
But with this building, it's TRULY 100% Complete. :)

I will certainly attempt to build this, but I will need accurate interior concept designs. Also, I intend to focus more on the old WTC complex rather than this one. In my opinion, it is unimaginative and unfitting at the World Trade Center.

Well you're right actually, I did attempted to build this on another WTC map by REVENOUS, he made both WTC side-by-side and it was incredible but the build had incomplete of the underground memorial, WTC7,, WTC5, Liberty Park and it had the old design of WTC2.

TBH, I'd preferred the old concept design of WTC2. I did the best I could based on concept arts and any references I could find.

Here's my build feedback if you have the time to improve it:
1-Your underground memorial should expand to North and South pools.

2-Greenwich Street goes through between WTC7 and Silverstein Park, forming a triangle-shape park.

3-WTC2 is off alignment with WTC1.

4-The Transportation Hub should parallel with the North Pool and the hub is actually at an acute angle.

5-You should expand your build to make room for WTC5 and I believe Liberty Park is complete in June 2016 with St. Nicholas National Shrine under construction.

6-I believe Fulton Street Walkway goes through from WTC1 to The Transportation Hub. Since it's still under construction IRL.

I know this is a lot to ask for and don't push yourself too much.
While building both WTCs maps, you should take your time. What makes a build map great is the details in the works.

Best of luck, BOSS.

I really like this, it's just the scaling of the towers and the bases of them are very slightly unrealistic.
None the less, Great Work! checkout mine! I gave you a diamond

Sorry for the late reply, I'm on vacation. But yes! I'm glad you recognized the new design for 2 WTC. I was slightly gearing towards this design when it first came out, but now I have to say, the other design looks slightly more appealing to me. Either way, I don't feel too satisfied with the new WTC complex in general; I would've loved to have the original Twin Towers back on the Manhattan Skyline.

Really? Thanks! I thought mine were tiny, as I have seen some massive ones out there. The widest building I have ever made is only 21 blocks wide. Thanks again, your recognition means a lot to me!
looks awesome and i love the beacons for the original wtc ;)

I am currently working on this large, cramped city called Heights City. It includes the original WTC complex, 1:2 scale, on Western Downtown. On that map, I am also recreating the Empire State Building, the World Financial Center, and the Statue of Liberty. I will send you a pic of the 10% complete city ASAP :)
sounds awesome! thanks for the information! :)

omg I thought I was looking to a real photo but this is minecraft, this is fucking amazing! but why do we have to wait till you have 30/50 diamonds to me it sounds like you only want diamonds. is that true?
  • EmperorBOSS

Thanks! I am waiting for 30-50 diamonds for the download so I could increase popularity. This way, there aren't any copycats who get a crapton of diamonds for my work. It's happened to me once. Trust me. :)
I know what your saying. someone (im not going to say a name) is also copying me and it really annoying .

the person who he thinks copied him was me. In theory I think he copied me since mine was released ages ago but his is slightly different to mine which pisses me off!

Good job! I think 7 wtc should be a tad taller though, maybe it's just me.

Thanks! I calculated 7wtc and proportionated it at a 1:2 scale. So that's that...but thanks for the note!

Thanks! I also triggered the Tribute in Light system with daylight detectors, but I don't have any night screenshots :/

Either way, compliments always help :)
