SUBJECT: 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.

EVENT LOCATION:

Center for Architecture
536 LaGuardia Place

Event Registration:

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 status 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 the economic, land use, and cultural implications of the continuing effort.
