Tall and Supertall

AECOM Tishman has delivered many of the most recognized tall and supertall buildings across the globe. Designed by the world’s preeminent architects, these buildings define the skylines of the cities in which they reside. With a stellar reputation sustained over 100 years, we understand the distinctive challenges associated with delivering these structures and offer unparalleled expertise to mitigate risk. Constructing the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, One World Trade Center, in the heart of a dense urban realm demanded a proven approach, and AECOM Tishman delivered.


AECOM Tishman has built more than 250 million square feet of high-rise commercial office space and is currently managing the construction of more than $9 billion of new, out-of-the-ground commercial projects. Our recent high-rise commercial towers have achieved many firsts:

  • The first LEED-Platinum-certified commercial tower: The Bank of America Building at One Bryant Park
  • The first “steel-first” office tower in New York: 7 World Trade Center
  • The first building to stand at over 1,500-feet in the Western Hemisphere: One World Trade Center
  • The first successful deployment of the cocoon safety system on a hybrid steel/concrete building: One World Trade Center and 4 World Trade Center
  • The first energy efficient commercial tower: Four Times Square

In addition to core and shell construction, AECOM Tishman provides corporate interior fit-outs and renovations.
