2 World Trade Center

Arranged around a central cruciform core, the tower comprises four blocks containing light-filled, flexible, column free office floors that rise to the 59th floor, where the glass façades are sheared off at an angle to address the Memorial Park. The upper floors contained within the summit provide the opportunity for spectacular multiple-height function rooms with sweeping views of the park, the river and the city.

The imposing double-height ground floor lobby is connected at the Greenwich Street entrance to the MTA providing direct access to the underground infrastructure system.

The lobby rises in level along Vesey Street and includes a further connection with the transport system via escalators and a four-story shopping area connecting with Fulton Street and spilling out onto the Wedge of Light plaza.

Safety systems will be designed to meet both the New York City Building Code  and Port Authority requirements. Designed to the highest energy efficiency ratings, 200 Greenwich Street is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification.
