The New World Trade Center Development
Today, Sunday 11th September 2011 marks the tenth anniversary of the tragic events which took place in New York City on September 11th 2001.
For the first time, families who lost loved ones on September 11th 2001 either at the World Trade Center, Pentagon, the plane which crashed in Pennsylvania or the 6 who lost their lives in February 1993, will be able to see their names carved in brass around the two waterfalls which mark the foundations of where the World Trade Center towers once stood so proudly, dominating the skyline.
America is now rising, with construction of the new World Trade Center. The new World Trade Center is a vision of downtown New York that combines modern, safe and sustainable commercial space, convenient transportation, and a destination cultural center.
When complete, the new World Trade Center development will include, five new skyscrapers, The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center, The World Trade Center Transportation Hub, 550,000 square feet of retail space and a Performing Arts Center.
Our thoughts are with all who lost loved ones on that most tragic of days. We hope that the new developments and the memorial, will put closure to the many individuals who were impacted that day. The future is now bright for New York and the world. The story of September 11th 2001, will never be forgotten and we will always remember those who tragically died in the horrific events which took place 10 years ago.
We have learnt from yesterday, to make tomorrow a better day...
