Sigh.

A residential building on the WTC site just strikes me as very inappropriate.

A hotel would be fine, but not apartments.

I tend to agree with this, not least because the usually thin proportions for a residential wedged between two beefy towers would look really odd, and there are plenty of new residentials going up all around the site. A hotel would make a lot of sense though.

In any case, I definitely think there's better use for that space than a performing arts center. Hell, they could just turn it into a temporary park until there's enough demand to build another office tower.

But, if we're thinking alternate uses, let's think outside the box for a second...

Wouldn't this be the absolute ideal site for a Business School version of the R.I. Cornell Tech Campus? Is it crazy to think the nation's top B-schools (Stanford, Harvard, Penn, Columbia, etc.) would pay top dollar for an outpost in the center of the Financial District?

They should just use the PAC land as a lawn for the WTC area. Or maybe a swimming pool/ice rink combo.

hahaha I have to agree 100%. If he were a developer we'd be seeing churches built in times square

This was posted on the 2WTC thread a while back, and it looks residental. Could this be the building that will rise here?

Who own the land actually?The Port Authority?
I love Marshallnight's idea....a business school would be great!..but I also love the idea of a Performing Art Center;I guess we already have enough green spaces on the site but a Japanese garden with some Isamu Noguchi sculptures would be appropriate.It could be a mix of all of these things too!
The lack of ambition for this particular spot (which is a prime location)surprises me a lot;...I confess I was relying once more on mister Bloomberg generosity!

The original plan for Site 5 (near Liberty Park) was a hotel/residential space. That site currently has no future but you have to believe something will be built there. It is, after all, a vacant lot in downtown Manhattan. The question is whether the Port Authority simply sells it off the site to another developer, which very well may happen. I'd really like to see some sort of hotel/residential space at the site, be that at Site 5 or the PAC site (which I refer to as "Site 6").

I pretty much never pay attention to what happens over there. Assuming by the lack of photos in this thread, not many folks here do either.

New Plan, Again, for WTC Performing-Arts Center

http://www.wsj.com/articles/new-plan...ter-1445475664

Quote:
The performing-arts center planned for the World Trade Center complex is shifting pe yet again, as its leaders work to deliver a slimmed-down project that can be built for roughly half the cost.

- edit: please do not copy whole articles into the forums, thanks
