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.

Principal Features of this Concept Plan:

  • 5-acre triangular open space
  • Memorial/cultural facilities, with a public pavilion
  • 13.2 acres of total public space including streets, sidewalks, and public arcades
  • Elevated pedestrian deck over West Street to the Winter Garden
  • Greenwich Street extended through site
  • West Street at grade with pedestrian deck
  • 6 towers (1 at 85 stories, 1 at 61 stories, and 4 at 59 stories)
  • Potential residential development south of Liberty Street
