Tower scheduled to open next year

The steel construction of 4 World Trade Center is drawing to a close.

Developer Larry Silverstein, public officials and construction workers are scheduled to gather at the site Monday to see some workers sign the building's final steel beam before it's lifted 977 feet by a crane and placed on top of the building.

The tower is scheduled to open late next year. It is expected to be the first tower completed on the 16-acre World Trade Center site since the destruction of 9/11.
