On the 16th anniversary of 9/11, check in on the progress at the World Trade Center.
A travertine-paved passageway underneath the World Trade Center has reopened for the first time since September 11. The passageway is the one of the only remaining vestiges of the original WTC, and holds haunting reminders of the rescue effort.
This weekend marks the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, and though it’s been a long road back for Lower Manhattan, the past decade and change—and the past three years in particular—have seen a lot of progress.
After 15 years in the making, the highly anticipated Westfield mall within the World Trade Center's Oculus is finally open. Naturally, attendees captured the excitement of the event in social media posts.
Chief among those problems is the fact that retail tenants are walking away, and four tenants have already backed out of leases less than a month before the scheduled opening on August 16.
The passageway provides a vital link between nine subway lines that pass through the Fulton Center and the PATH Station. Once these transit hubs open their retail components, the path will also provide a connection for shopping.
Since this passageway opened to the public in 2013, its white marble walls have set blank, but now the owner of the shopping mall inside the WTC Hub wants to brand it with a colossal 280-foot wide digital billboard.
Finally, Port Authority's "glorious boondoggle" may finally get the ringing-in it (sort of) deserves, as the agency plans to hold an opening ceremony for the $4 billion transit center around the time of its next board meeting.
Finally, the public can see inside the Oculus for the first time
Santiago Calatrava's epic World Trade Center Transportation Hub will open to the public today, but early reviews are decidedly mixed.
After more than a decade, the World Trade Center Transportation Hub—and the Oculus, the spiky, controversial sculpture that tops it—is set to make its public debut.
When Santiago Calatrava's WTC Transportation Hub opens to the public, it'll do so without a big ceremony.
The public will have its chance to weigh in on Santiago Calatrava's transit hub in March, but in the meantime, here's what architecture critics have to say.
