REX Named Lead Architect for the Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center

Quote:
The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) announced today that they have selected the design team for the Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center (PACWTC). Local Brooklyn-based firm REX — which was founded by principal Joshua Prince-Ramus as the New York office of OMA — beat out Danish firm Henning Larsen Architects and Dutch firm UNStudio for the lead role on the project. In order to tackle the specific needs of a mixed-use performing arts space, REX will be partnering with Davis Brody Bond as executive architect and Charcoalblue as theater consultant.

...

While REX's design for PACWTC has not yet been revealed, some of their earlier conceptual work may provide insight into their plans for the World Trade Center site. In 2002, The New York Times Magazine organized the Downtown Study Group to imagine alternatives to LMDC's plans at the time.

I still don't understand: why are they not planning a skyscraper at this prime location?

Whatever the argument for building a subsidized theater space at the WTC, surely it will be easier to fund when it comes with 60 stories of condos on top?

This seems like a potential waste of prime real estate on par with the Fulton center subway station.
