The new World Trade Center is a symbol of New York City’s resilience and determination in the face of unprecedented challenges. It’s also one of the top places in the city to do business. Indeed, the sprawling office complex offers excellent transit access, millions of square feet of Class-A office space and close proximity to many of Lower Manhattan’s top restaurants, shops, parks and entertainment destinations.
Although the old World Trade Center was dominated by financial and banking firms, the new complex is much more diverse in its tenants, who include Conde Nast, SNY, Mic, Ameriprise Financial and the General Services Administration, attesting its broad appeal. The World Trade Center’s prominent address, easy access to regional transportation options and modern office space all make it a fantastic place for all sorts of businesses. Here’s a quick look at its advantages.
Excellent Transit Options
The World Trade Center enjoys superb transportation options, being at the nexus of the New York metropolitan area. 11 subway lines as well as PATH trains to New Jersey are located nearby, with convenient access afforded by the new World Trade Center Transportation Hub and Fulton Center. Ferry service is also located nearby at the Battery Park City Ferry Terminal and Whitehall Terminal for the Staten Island Ferry while regional transit hubs like Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal, the Port Authority Bus Terminal and Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn are just a short subway ride away. The region’s three main airports are also fairly convenient as well.
Cutting-Edge Office Space
The new complex offers some 10 million square feet of state-of-the-art Class-A office space. For companies seeking cutting-edge technology and open floor plans, the trade center is an outstanding choice.
Close Proximity to Downtown’s Top Amenities
In addition to its superb transit connections and state-of-the-art office space, the complex also offers easy access to many of Lower Manhattan’s top amenities and sites of interest. The new Westfield World Trade Center and shops and restaurants of Brookfield Place offer plenty of lunch and post-work shopping options while nearby Stone Street and the South Street Seaport also offer excellent dining and nightlife choices. Picturesque Battery Park and the Battery Park City promenade offer plenty of green space to relax during lunch or after work as well.
