World Trade Center Memorial on 10th Anniversary of 9-11 Attacks (VIDEO)

One World Trade Center is trending in the lead-up to the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The skyscraper, previously known as the Freedom Tower, will eventually reach 105 stories and 1,776 feet, rising up from where the Twin Towers once stood.

A National Memorial Plaza just above ground level will open in time for this weekend's anniversary.

Commemorative events will be held across the country on Sunday, and construction at One World Trade Center will pause in remembrance of that fateful day.
