Visualisations of the winning project for the architecture competition for the World Trade Center (WTC) Transportation Hub on Ground Zero in New York City. The new WTC Transit Hub in Lower Manhattan is designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava. The new World Trade Center Transit Hub with its PATH terminal is expected to be ready by 2020. Der neue WTC Transit Hub in Lower Manhattan wurde vom Architekten Santiago Calatrava gestaltet.
The World Trade Center PATH station originally opened on July 19, 1909 as the Hudson Terminal.
The temporary PATH station will be replaced with a permanent World Trade Center Transportation Hub, which is being built by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey at an estimated cost of $3.44 billion.
A large transit station was not part of the 2003 Memory Foundations master plan for the site by Daniel Libeskind, which called for a smaller station along the lines of the original subterranean station that existed beneath the World Trade Center. In early 2004, the Port Authority, which owns the land, modified the Libeskind plan to include a world-class transportation station downtown that was intended to rival Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal. Lower Manhattan has never had an ambitious transit or railroad center, as the former complex at the World Trade Center was built beneath the buildings.
Spanish Architect Santiago Calatrava, designer of the station, said it resembles a bird being released from a child's hand.
However, Calatrava's original soaring spike design has been scaled back because of security issues. The design was further modified to eliminate the opening and closing roof mechanism because of budget and space constraints. The station has also stirred problems with developer Larry Silverstein, who owns the lease for the World Trade Center site, since it took away available space for his proposed buildings.


Construction of the station called for relocation of the landmark World Trade Center cross in 2006.
On July 8, 2008, the first prefabricated "ribs" for the pedestrian walkway under Fulton Street were installed on the site.
As of March 1, 2011, over 225 of the 300 steel pieces which make up the roof of the station have been installed.
Construction of the West Street pedestrian underpass (the "east-west connector")" to link the WTC with Battery Park City's World Financial Center" is active on the west side of the WTC site just south of the Freedom Tower and across West Street. Headhouse construction is active outside the WFC's Winter Garden with coordination with Brookfield Properties, Turner Construction and the state DOT. The hub's glass and steel roof can be opened and the wings with its arches will rise up to 45 meters above ground. When the Hudson Terminal was torn down to make way for the World Trade Center, a new station was built, which opened in 1971. Libeskind's design called for the space to be left open, forming a "Wedge of Light" so that sun rays around the autumnal equinox would hit the World Trade Center footprints each September.
In a nod to the Liebeskind concept, the station will be at an angle to maximize the effect of the autumnal equinox rays. The roof was originally designed to mechanically open to increase light and ventilation to the enclosed space. The mezzanine level of the station is undergoing major construction and work on the foundation is still underway. Later that month installation of the Vierendeel Truss, one of the hub's key components, began with the installation of a 50-ton section of the truss.
But I can’t help but think Westfield and the other retailers will foul-it with their ads in no time.


The West Corridor (which is shown in these pictures) has been open since 2013 and still remains in pristine condition.
This station served as the terminus for the Newark" World Trade Center and Hoboken" World Trade Center routes until it was destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. An underground passageway east, along Dey Street, is being constructed as part of the Fulton Center project, which will link the new station with the subway's 1 2 3 4 5 A C E J N R Z services. There will also be a passageway west to the World Financial Center and the Battery Park City Ferry Terminal.
The truss will serve as the mezzanine roof and also act as a support for the northeast corner of the WTC Memorial. The station is currently undergoing a major reconstruction project and will become the World Trade Center Transportation Hub after its completion, scheduled for the second quarter of 2014.
As for Westfield, I doubt if their signs will be that noticeable given the overall size of the place.
In any event, the mall is so remote from opening (originally scheduled for December 2015, then delayed to first half of 2016 and now they’re saying mid-2016) that its not even a near term concern.
The Fulton Center (also being operated by Westfield) has been open almost a year and so far there is absolutely no stores in there – not even a kiosk. Westfield has been so incompetent in getting their NYC projects moving that I have real doubts that the WTC mall will open anytime before 2020.
