The New World Trade Center, as described by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is”destined to become once again the world’s premier destination for commerce, culture and community” (The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey). The cultural and commercial future of the Center’s location looks bright and prosperous.
The transportation hub currently in development, for example, will not only feature “glass-and-steel “wings” that will allow natural light to pass through to the rail platforms 60 feet below street level,” (“Transportation Hub”) but it will, like mass transit connections in New York City’s past, draw in thousands of people into the area by linking ferry, PATH train and MTA Subway lines, as well as JFK International Airport (“WTC Timeline”). Population density as well as private employment can only be expected to increase as the futuristic look of the project build upon the City’s marketability (see population density change presentation above). The future Center will surely fulfill and surpass the expectations of the original World Trade Center.
