World Trade Center: Update/Timetable/Issues
AIA CES LUs 1.5; HSW 1.5
When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9
Where: At The Center
In the nine years since the attacks of 9/11, the rebuilding of the World Trade Center has been an ongoing effort of a number of government agencies, private development participants, and civic organizations.
Especially over the last 18-24 months, much has been accomplished about which the general public is not aware—key design decisions, major infrastructure, foundation and below grade construction, memorial plaza and museum construction—and now as buildings 1 and 4 are emerging from the ground the shape of the final complex is beginning to be apparent.
Looking forward—not backward-- this presentation and discussion, the first in a series of events focused on Lower Manhattan, is an opportunity to understand what is the current statue of development, what is the timetable for ongoing construction, and what are remaining issues with which future activity must still deal.
Future events will include a similar but expanded focus on the WTC site’s Lower Manhattan context, and an examination of economic, land use and cultural implications of the continuing effort.
