Legoland Discovery Center Westchester will unveil a replicated Lego model of 1 World Trade Center to its Miniland exhibit on June 28.

With New York City’s skyline growing to include One World Trade Center and its magnificent, recently installed spire, Legoland® Discovery Center Westchester announced that Miniland® — the venue’s signature re-creation of landmark locations and buildings throughout New York City and Westchester County — will experience a similar change as a Lego® model of the historic building will be unveiled for the first time and installed in the attraction (39 Fitzgerald St.), on Friday, June 28 at Ridge Hill in Yonkers.
 
legoland westchester one world trade center“One World Trade Center is a marvel of design and construction that is a perfect addition to the New York City skyline,” said Chris Mines, general manager of Legoland Discovery Center Westchester. “Similar to its real world counterpart, our model of One World Trade Center is a beautiful feat of engineering, but with Lego bricks, and we know everyone will enjoy seeing this new addition to the Miniland skyline.”
 
The model was painstakingly re-created by a team of expert Lego® model builders entirely out of 4,873 LEGO bricks, taking more than 260 hours to design and build. 

Standing at 11.45 feet tall and weighing-in at nearly 100 pounds, the model re-creates One World Trade Center’s distinctive architecture and design with Lego bricks, from its dynamic, shimmering glass surface all the way up to its incredible spire and beacon, for the creation of which the Port Authority provided guidance in order to accurately be duplicated in Lego bricks.
 
At 1,776 feet tall, One World Trade Center is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and third tallest in the world. Built by The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey this building sets new standards of design, construction and prestige, and heralds the renaissance of Downtown Manhattan. One World Trade Center is the new icon of New York’s magical skyline and the most recognized and desirable office address in the world.
 
Legoland Discovery Center Westchester is a $12 million, 32,300 square-foot indoor attraction featuring more than 3 million LEGO bricks, geared toward children ages 3-10 and their families.

Its range of educational and interactive attractions will include hands-on play areas, a 4D cinema, master classes led by Master Model Builders, two Lego amusement rides, special party rooms and Miniland — the venue’s signature re-creation of landmark locations and buildings throughout Westchester County and New York City, made entirely out of Legobricks.
