General News, Project Announcements
Finally revealed, the innovative design for Two World Trade Center.
This commercial building will stretch 3 million gross square feet and include 72 total floors. VDA is currently providing full consulting services for 8 groups of passenger elevators as well as providing additional services along the bottom retail floor.
The building will consist of stacked blocks that get smaller as the building rises, creating setbacks that will contain a series of outdoor gardens, one for each block. Fox and News Corp, which have operated as separate companies since 2013, will occupy the two largest blocks of office space, while Silverstein will market the upper floors to other tenants.
Leading Architect Bjarke Ingels is quoted as saying; “On one hand it’s about being respectful and about completing the frame around the memorial, and on the other hand it’s about revitalizing downtown Manhattan and making it a lively place to live and work.”
