The 9/11 attacks is a tragedy that will forever be remembered and even though we can’t replace the many lives that were taken away, one of the World Trade Centers were re-built.

New York’s new World Trade Center has taken on a new record as the tallest building in the U.S. Hit the jump for the details.

The Height Committee of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat announced that the building was the tallest in U.S., standing at 1,776 feet.

The BIG DEBATE was whether or not the needle at the top should be considered a part of the rebuild or simply something such as a broadcast antenna. YES, without the tip – 1,368ft. Fun fact!

This combination made from file photos shows Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, in Chicago on March 12, 2008, left, and One World Trade Center in New York on Sept. 5, 2013. Soaring above the city at 1,776 feet, 104-story One World Trade Center is in contention with Willis Tower for the title of America’s tallest building.

A committee of architects recognized as the arbiters on world building heights is meeting Friday Nov. 8, 2013 in Chicago to decide whether a design change affecting One World Trade Center’s needle disqualifies its hundreds of feet from being counted, which would deny the building the title of nation’s tallest giving the title to the 110 story Willis Tower at 1,450 feet.
