July 16, 2002 - Authority of New York and New Jersey today unveiled six options for rebuilding the World Trade Center site and adjacent areas, focused on honoring those lost on September 11 and revitalizing Lower Manhattan. The plans are a milestone in the ongoing public process that will lead to final plans for the most important development project in New York City history. They suggest ways to use space on the site for a memorial, commercial and retail space, cultural facilities and other neighborhood amenities, a hotel, and a new transportation hub serving New York and New Jersey. Some plans also call for residential development in areas adjacent to the site.

GOALS & OBJECTIVES

  • Respect the site of the World Trade Center as a place of remembrance and reserve an area of the site for one or more permanent memorials
  • Facilitate the continued revitalization of Lower Manhattan to ensure its long-term viability
  • Restore all or a portion of the street grid and reintegrate the former World Trade Center site with the rest of downtown
  • Eliminate West Street as a barrier between the Financial District and Battery Park City
  • Coordinate mass transit services to provide a coherent integration between Lower Manhattan and the rest of the city and region
  • Create a distinctive transit hub linking PATH, subway, and future regional rail service as a gateway to Lower Manhattan
  • Create downtown facilities to accommodate the anticipated surge in charter, tour, and public busses, and explore opportunities for off-street vehicular and service access
  • Expand the residential population and enhance residential life to create a strong sense of community throughout Lower Manhattan
  • Promote retail and commercial opportunities that support Lower Manhattan as a vibrant place with daytime and nighttime activity
  • Provide for new or expanded cultural and civic institutions in Lower Manhattan
  • Create an accessible, attractive, and comprehensive park and open space system for Lower Manhattan
  • Support sustainable and excellent design, and "green building" technology, state-of-the-art safety and security in design and engineering, and accessible design features.
  • Support excellence in design to ensure the creation of a location that is a symbol of New York City recognized around the world
  • Encourage preservation of outstanding historic structures and the cultural value of the cityscape
  • Develop Lower Manhattan not only with a revived financial services / Wall Street economy, but with new centers of economic activity
