UPDATE: 5/01/2018
At last, the update you guys have been waiting for is here. Some of the major changes in this update include: 7 World Trade Center lobby and revampment, 4, 5, and 6 World Trade Center lobby and facade remodel, renovation for observation deck and Windows on the World, The Mall at the World Trade Center inclusion (though a portion is cut off due to street level complications, I will try to fix this by the next update), Marriott World Trade Center interiors, plaza refurbishment w/ creative planters, kiosks, outdoor dining, and nightlife stage entertainment, and most importantly, the split of the Twin Towers into two, so now it is at a full 1:1 scale.
Hopefully you won't hate me anymore :) (Also, I don't know if this is allowed, I'll have to double check, but if it is, I'm willing to DM the resource pack to people since without it the map will look pretty bad.)

DISCLAIMER:
I would like to give my deepest condolences to 9/11 victims and their families, and congratulate 9/11 survivors for doing the impossible. However, I want to stress that I do not want to see any disrespectful comments or 9/11 jokes. That's just plain wrong. But back to reality, I am dedicating this to victims/families/survivors as a memorial, and any shown disrespect will be immediately reported.

15 years ago, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center dominated the New York skyline. But little did the people who they sheltered know, their home away from home would be gone soon. The once lavish and grand skyscrapers rising a quarter-mile high would be reduced to a dilapidated pile of rubble and ash, following the worst terrorist attacks this country has ever encountered. Thankfully, the Twin Towers, along with the rest of the WTC site, rose from the rubble into the completely new dimension of Minecraft.


This map includes all the buildings of the WTC complex, including:


1 and 2 World Trade Center (Twin Towers, then tallest buildings in New York)
3 World Trade Center (Marriott Hotel)
4, 5, and 6 World Trade Center (Office Buildings)
7 World Trade Center (New York Command Center, Solomon Brothers Bldg.)
Austin J. Tobin Plaza (Central World Trade Center Plaza, including The Sphere)
Surrounding Streets



Completing this project would offer the public a view of the totality of the above-ground portion of the World Trade Center complex. Of course, the centerpiece Twin Towers, unmistakable in their minimalist form, are detailed and furnished to perfection. The cavernous marble lobbies, narrow sky lobbies, open-spaced office floors, the famous observation deck, and the fine dining Windows on the World restaurant complex are all interior features included in the completed model. A generally accurate core is also represented. In addition to the Twin Towers, the opulent 5-star Marriott hotel, fully furnished with luxury decor, is included in this model. Buildings 4, 5, and 6 are also included here; each with their own lobbies and concourse. The WTC path station, albeit underground, will be included via teleportation (that is my only option at this point). World Trade Center 7, alongside its complex, multi-tiered lobby, is also well-represented in this model. In addition, the replica showcases the spacious, 4-acre promenade at the center of the complex, the courtyard just outside of WTC 7, the pedestrian bridge connecting WTC 7 with the rest of the complex, the massive concourse shopping center (then New York's largest mall), and famous artworks featured throughout the original complex, such as Fritz Koenig's The Sphere, and World Trade Center Tapestry by Joan Miro. In the far future, I intend to add the World Financial Center/Brookfield Place to this map. Unfortunately, due to my unwillingness to do so, the streets of the complex won't be accurately recreated, so feel free to let me know if you want to do this because I am more than thankful if you do so.


RESOURCE PACK:
FancyCraft 128x 1.8 (Finally!) 1.8 FancyCraft Resource Pack 128x (use v2, not v3 - the iron blocks look terrible in v3, which make the white chamfered corners of the Twin Towers)



SHADERS: SEUS 10.1 Ultra / Continuum Shader 1.0 Cinematic / RRe 36's Shaders v7 Ultra

RIP to all 2,977 people who died in the worst tragedy in American history.

Upon mrmuckles' request, I will post a few photos of the South Tower lobby with the lights enabled.

@EmporerBOSS Are the interiors somewhat accurate? If they are, would you mind if I used the same order you did on the building, I will definitely give you credit. Plus, do you have any tips on the build? And how I can make it more accurate?

Apologies for the late reply, I've kinda drifted away from MC for a while. Also sorry for the suuuuper long reply. Anyways...as of right now, there is only one example office floor--it's in the North Tower, second half, maybe 5-10 floors from the top. It features a reception area, executive office and conference area (it's a recreation of the WTC offices featured in the movie Remember Me). Other than that, I've got mostly accurate interiors for the Twin Towers' lobbies, the entire Marriott hotel (except there are now 10 floors due to height restrictions), 7 World Trade Center's lobby, most of the shopping center, and all the low rise building lobbies, with certain constraints of course. From the lobbies of the Twin Towers (concourse elevator in WTC 1 and mezzanine rear corridor in WTC 2) you can access fairly accurate interiors of the Windows on the World restaurant complex and the observatory, respectively.
If you're still interested then yes, you could definitely use the map (with due credit). I'll DM you tips on how to make your build accurate.
