The new World Trade Center (WTC) is a vision of downtown New York that combines modern, safe and sustainable commercial space, convenient transportation, and a destination cultural center. The new WTC will include:
- Five new skyscrapers (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 WTC)
- The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center
- The World Trade Center Transportation Hub
- 550,000 square feet of retail space
- A Performing Arts Center
This vision represents an unprecedented merging of architects, artists, and urban developers, including Santiago Calatrava, David Childs, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, Fumihiko Maki, and Richard Rogers. The singular goal is a grand new urban center for 21st century New York.
