5 World Trade Center


Site 5 will anchor the southern edge of the World Trade Center campus just below Liberty Park. The building that occupies this space will have frontage on Greenwich, Washington, and Albany Streets.  


The World Trade Center Master Plan calls for the heights and proportions of the towers at the World Trade Center to be arranged in a descending spiral, with One World Trade Center being the tallest, 2 World Trade Center taller than 3 World Trade Center, and so on. Therefore, this 33,000 square foot lot will accommodate the smallest tower at the World Trade Center with approximately 1.3 million square feet of space and a maximum height that will not exceed 900 feet.  


At this point, what that the building will look like is not defined. In June of 2019 the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) and the Port Authority of NY & NJ  issued a request for proposals to develop World Trade Center Site 5. Rick Cotton, Port Authority Executive Director said, "We are pleased to move forward with this much anticipated premier development opportunity in New York City.  We have taken aggressive actions during the past year to evolve this campus from construction site to a lively, energetic public space, and the development of this vacant parcel is the next step in this ongoing transformation."
