About project

Occupying a pivotal position at the north-east corner of Memorial Park, 2 World Trade Center will create a bold new addition to the New York skyline

The tower comprises four blocks arranged around a central cruciform core and contains 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 dramaticc 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.
