Virtual Tour Of The Chosen Design


Within four years, Libeskind said in his presentation, several major elements will already be built at the World Trade Center site. The memorial space [1], he said, will be built and filled with a separately designed memorial. The museum [2] and the cultural spaces [3] that flank it will also be built. Libeskind also said that construction will be finished on a new lower Manhattan transportation station [4], on a performing arts center [5] north of Fulton Street and on the iconic office building [6] with its 1776 foot spire [7].

Port Authority officials, however, say that it may take closer to five or six years to build all of these elements.
