New images have been released of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ 3 World Trade Center in Manhattan, in advance of its June 2018 opening. The 1,080-foot-high (330-meter-high) building will be the fifth-tallest in New York City, and will feature the tallest private outdoor terrace in Lower Manhattan. The scheme forms part of a larger development of the World Trade Center site, including SOM’s One World Trade Center, BIG’s 2 World Trade Center, and a Transportation Hub by Santiago Calatrava. Bound by Greenwich Street and Church Street, 3 World Trade Center sits opposite the WTC Memorial and Cultural Center, a relationship which heavily informed the architectural form. The scheme reduces in massing as it rises, stepping back to accentuate the building’s verticality while remaining sympathetic both to the memorial site and surrounding buildings.
