Silverstein Updates YIMBY On Continued World Trade Center Progress as Work on Perelman PAC Gains Momentum

As we look back today in remembrance of September 11, 2001, it’s affirming to appreciate the progress that has been made on the new World Trade Center Complex, especially over the last handful of years. The development has restored a vertical prowess to the Financial District and the Lower Manhattan skyline, given rise to a stunning new transit center topped by by Santiago Calatrava‘s Oculus, and will soon become a cultural destination as well. Construction has resumed for the Ronald O.

YIMBY also checks in on the current state of Two World Trade Center and Five World Trade Center.
