Developers Unveil Plans for Trade Center Site

By DAVID W. DUNLAP
Published: September 7, 2007


James Estrin/The New York Times

The State Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, pointing, and the developer Larry A. Silverstein studying a model on Thursday as new details emerged about what visitors can expect to see in five years at the site of the World Trade Center Memorial.


From deeply somber to brightly kinetic, a picture emerged today for the first time of what pedestrians can expect to see five years from now along the Greenwich Street side of the World Trade Center memorial.

Rather than emphasizing the distant bird’s-eye perspectives typical of most ground zero design unveilings, the developers and architects who are working on the redevelopment project stayed pretty much at street level, showing many of the details that will make or break the pedestrian experience.

They showed two of the distinctive steel tridents that once supported the facade of 1 World Trade Center, up to 90 feet tall, housed behind glass in the entrance pavilion to the memorial museum. They showed a 90-by-35-foot “media wall” of light-emitting diodes, with transparent elevators to the side, overlooking the channel between the two voids that compose the most recognizable element of the memorial. They showed stores that would face the memorial across Greenwich Street. They also showed a wall of polished black granite that would reflect the memorial plaza.

Greenwich Street will offer a critical transition between the sanctity of the memorial plaza itself, on the west side of the street, and the unabashedly commercial quarter on the east side.

Therefore, the three enormous office buildings being developed at the trade center site by Silverstein Properties — Tower 2 at 200 Greenwich Street, Tower 3 at 175 Greenwich Street and Tower 4 at 150 Greenwich Street — will have a great effect on the memorial.

New design details for all three buildings and also for the memorial museum pavilion on Greenwich Street were described today in a news conference at 7 World Trade Center.

Joseph Daniels, the president of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum (as the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation is now known) said that two raw steel tridents from the north face of the north tower would be brought back to the trade center site. They are now in Hangar 17 at Kennedy International Airport, where the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has been storing large-scale 9/11 artifacts.

That's the AT&T longlines building. It's actually sort of interesting close-up. I don't really mind it. Technically, it was designed to withstand nuclear fall-out, not blast. You'd need a very deep bunker to withstand such a blast.

i think its kind of unusual though that the empire state building was completed in 15 months, and construction on the freedom tower has began at the end of april 2006 and it hasnt even reached ground level, but atleast it is being built

Aside from Dubai, where the hell else do you have 4 supertalls (and lots of other tall towers) all right next to each other?

im so glad that they didnt decide to go with the 2004 freedom tower design, that thing was ugly and it didnt even have alot of floors, also the buildings that were designed around that freedom tower were boring and plain, i mean what were they thinking, why in the world would they have designed a building that would be a part of the World Trade Center if it doesnt even come close to being as good as the original Twin Towers
