Hello everyone! Today, I am uploading my biggest project yet..the Original World Trade Center! This build is shooting to the goal of being the most accurate WTC complex ever made in Minecraft. Each building contains the exact amount of floors it did originally. This build pushes the limits of the 256 block limit..literally. The towers fit all 110 floors by making all of them in sections. In total, each tower is around 630 blocks tall. This entire build has been made in 1.5:1. I really hope you all enjoy this build. I will be adding more buildings and a download in the following months, enjoy!

Please keep all inappropriate comments about 9/11 and or jokes elsewhere. This build is supposed to remember the victims and heroes of that day. Please, just be mature and respectful.


This complex includes:

- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 World Trade Center

- Austin J. Tobin Plaza

- Windows on the World

- Surrounding Streets


Floor Information:

WTC 1: 110

WTC 2: 110

WTC 3: 22

WTC 4: 8

Truly great detail and impressive use of rendering in order to overcome the height limit. I would have never thought of that myself. You really have done an amazing job.

C'mon Emp. You deserve a lot of credit since you became my friend, gave me info, and down right inspired me to make this build

Well I'm so glad that I was a source of inspiration but I really mean what I said--your build has reached levels of detail that I'd never have imagined, and I am beyond impressed. So congratulations on the most accurate WTC replica out there; no need to aim for it cause you're already there. This build deserves so much more attention even though it's been at the top of the trending page for days.

What mod do you use to build taller than 256 blocks?

It's not a mod. I built all 110 floors in different sections (1-43) (44-85) (86-110) and then when you 3D render them, you connect them into 1 tower.
Woah finn. I don't think i've told you how much I really appreciate this. Having this on blueprint is really an honor to be honest. Thank you :)

Thank You Crafty!
If I may also ask, is this on a single player server or a live multiplayer one. I would love to see it first hand rather than a download if it is public.

Yes, this is live on a server. IP is blueprint.mc-dns.net
I hae to personally say congratulations on this build, i created a planet minecraft account to give you a diamond and say how spectacular this looks. I have a original world trade center to but decided to put it on hold. Do you happen to have access to the plaza plan as I could givd you it to complete or even start the interior
