4 World Trade Center

The fundamental approach to 150 Greenwich Street is a “minimalist” tower that embraces an abstract quality – light, cool in color, and ephemeral – changing with the light of day. The two obtuse edges of the tower on the southwest and northeast corners are articulated with dramatic indentations to appear slender and sharp. 

Inside, a single edge forms two offices with a window from the open office to allow for uninterrupted views at the corner tip of the floor.  The office lobby, with a 47-foot ceiling height, faces Greenwich Street. The formal composition is symmetrical and offers panoramic views of the Memorial Park. Facing Church Street is an 85-foot atrium, which amalgamates the Transit Hall and retail into a single, identifiable whole featuring multiple cascading floors. 

Safety systems have designed to meet both the New York City Building Code and Port Authority requirements. Designed to LEED® Gold standards.
