This concept plan creates a 5-acre triangular public open space with Greenwich Street extending through the site. New memorial, cultural, and commercial facilities enclose this open space to the west, with a central public pavilion. A major east-west pedestrian route passes through a series of open and enclosed spaces, including the pavilion, which provides access to memorial facilities and a below-grade transit concourse. A broad elevated pedestrian deck spans West Street to reach the upper level of the Winter Garden, leading to the waterfront.
