Even One World Trade Center is getting into the act.

The spire atop the 1,776-foot building will be lit orange and green to celebrate the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks playing just eight miles away in Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford on Sunday.

Port Authority officials say the colors — orange for the Broncos and green for the Seahawks — will alternate until a world champion is crowned. The champions [sic] color will then be displayed.The Empire State Building, in midtown Manhattan, has also been lit to mark the Super Bowl teams.

The spire was lit last night at 6 and it will stay lit until midnight each day, Port Authority officials say.

The lighting is being done in coordination with the NFL’s unveiling of the Roman numerals XLVIII on Super Bowl Boulevard in Midtown Manhattan tonight.

One WTC stands at 1,776 feet high on the site of the former World Trade Center that was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. One World Trade Center is as a joint venture of The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and The Durst Organization.
