Beam from World Trade Center to become a monument, right here in Palm Beach Gardens
Steel beam number C-89, which was on the south tower between the 12th and 15th floors, is expected to be in place by this year’s ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. The brick-red beam, bent from the searing heat of the explosion and weighing 10 tons, will be placed at Fire Station 3 at 5161 Northlake Boulevard just west of Military Trail, reaching toward the sky. The design calls for lights, brick walkways, landscaping and 8-foot-tall glass panels etched with the names of the nearly 3,000 victims in half-inch letters. A police or firefighter symbol will be placed next to the names of all firefighters and police officers killed.
