YIMBY reported on the demolition of the temporary WTC PATH station last August, and we revealed renderings for the Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center last September. The complexity of the site within the new World Trade Center means that several additional steps must be completed before work can begin on the actual PAC, but now, construction has begun on the Vehicle Security Center, which will sit directly underneath the PAC.
World Trade Center
There has been no bigger development saga in Manhattan than the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, and while it may not seem glaringly obvious, things took a major step forward this week as the glass atop 175 Greenwich Street reached the building’s parapet. It will still take another few months for the southern and eastern sides of the supertall, aka Three World Trade Center, to be completely enclosed, but both northern and western fronts are now fully complete.
It has been over five months since we last checked in on the progress of 3 World Trade Center. At the end of August, the glass was nearly halfway up the supertall tower. Since then, it has come much closer to the top.
The rebuilding of the World Trade Center took a big step forward Thursday morning. Officials unveiled the design for the Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center. It was also announced that Barbra Streisand will chair the new center.
The 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks is less than two weeks away, and there is new and noticeable progress that has been made on the construction of the World Trade Center.
