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.

Fun Facts


Towers 2, 3, and 4

Building Towers 2, 3, and 4 will require an estimated 393,700 cubic yards of concrete will be used, almost enough to build a five-foot sidewalk from NY to Washington D.C.

An estimated 97,000 tons of steel will be used to construct the three towers, roughly equaling 48,500 average two-ton automobiles.
There will be a combined 146 elevators in Towers 2, 3, and 4.

The combined heights of Tower 2, 3, 4 will be 3485 feet with 170 office floors.

Tower 4 is more a supporting tower isn't it? I think it is good that not all four towers are (how do you say that) Icon towers or spectacular towers. You know what I mean. The other 3 towers are spectacular. Tower 4 is more 'quiet', more in the background (If you can say that for a tower who is still 297 meters tall!) I can't find the right words in English, but I hope you understand me.

Perfectly. Also, its extremely close to Tower 3, so it shouldn't be anything but supporting. But its a nice building in its own right. In another location however, it would probably have more distinctive features.
