    An 80-story office building set to open at the World Trade Center will be the third completed skyscraper at the site where the twin towers stood.

    Monday's ribbon-cutting for the 1,079-foot 3 World Trade Center marks a major step in the rebuilding of the site.

    The new $2.7 billion building, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Rogers, is the fifth-tallest building in New York City.

    The ribbon-cutting will be around 11 a.m.
