The new port of entry to Lower Manhattan, Westfield World Trade Center is located at the site where 60,000 neighborhood residents, 300,000 daily commuters, 13 subway / PATH trains, multiple ferry lines, and an additional 15 million annual global travelers converge within one landmark setting. This new New York City experience brings together commerce, community and culture in a destination integrating the Santiago Calatrava’s designed Oculus, street-level space in WTC Towers 3 and 4, as well as the galleries that run underground across the World Trade Center campus (including to 1 WTC, now the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere).
Encompassing more than 100 fashion, beauty, lifestyle and technology brands across 365,000 square feet of retail space, Westfield World Trade Center is home to one of the most diverse retail collections in New York City, restaurant concepts created by world-class chefs, art, culture, events and entertainment, as well as showrooms, sponsorships and engaging media activations for premier partners such as Ford, Chase and PepsiCo.
The World Trade Center retail complex will be a centerpiece for the entire Lower Manhattan area, a district that is experiencing rapid growth in office occupancy, residential population, commuter traffic and tourism. With the lure of the World Trade Center and convenient access to many modes of public transportation, the area attracts millions of visitors each year.
Westfield has one of the world’s largest shopping center portfolios, encompassing the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Its centers generate more than 1.1 billion customer visits and over $40 billion in retail sales every year. Westfield’s strategy is to develop superior retail destinations in major cities by integrating food, fashion, leisure and entertainment and by using technology to better connect retailers with consumers.
