 Again, relief will come deep underground, this time in a small room where snarls of fat wires known as feeders transport electricity into the building from a nearby Consolidated Edison sub-station. Under current plans, additional feeders would be added and new circuit-breakers and wiring would be installed to circulate that new power throughout the towers, said August K. Preschle, the general manager of the trade center. A Prestigious Magnet

For all the flaws conceded by its own managers, the trade center is still a prestigious magnet for airlines, shipping companies, brokers and foreign banks. And only the Sears Tower in Chicago is taller.

"It's a very famous building, even in Japan," said Toru Kukihara, president of Fuji Bank and Trust Company, the center's largest Japanese tenant. "Most of the Japanese people know One World Trade Center and Two World Trade Center."

And though she complains that the concourse is "a drag," Adrienne Brown, a receptionist at a law firm in Tower One, said the complex still inspired awe.

"I am so amazed, just by the height, the view of the skyline," said Ms. Brown, who works at Brown & Wood on the 58th floor. "I can't believe I work in the World Trade Center."

Photo/Diagram: "At a Glance: The World Trade Center" The complex is so big that a wide-angle lens is needed to get a relatively unobstructed view of all seven buildings in a single photograph. The lens, aimed to the west, tends to make straight features like buildings and streets appear to be bent. 1. North Tower * 110 stories * 1,368 ft. tall, plus 316 ft. TV antenna mast on top * 4.1 million rentable square feet of space 2. South Tower * 110 stories * 1,362 ft. tall, plus 316 ft. TV antenna mast on top * 4.1 million rentable square feet of space 3.

[ no name ] * 47 stories * 634 ft. tall * 1.6 million rentable square feet of space Heights measured from street level. (Source: Port Authority of New York and New Jersey)
