NEW YORK CITY—“When the city was attacked on 9/11, our collective response and our civic response went far beyond what we lost on that day. Our first duty was to create a stirring memorial to those friends, neighbors and co-workers lost on 9/11,” said Larry Silverstein, chairman of Silverstein Properties, at the ceremony for the public opening of 3 World Trade Center on Monday. “But it didn’t stop there. We were also charged with producing a more vibrant and connected neighborhood than anything that existed here before, a better version of New York.”

3 World Trade Center, reported by The New York Times to cost $2.7 billion, stands at 175 Greenwich St. It is the second tallest building in the 16-acre World Trade Center site that also includes the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, the Oculus transportation hub, 7 World Trade Center, One World Trade Center, and 4 World Trade Center. The Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center and 2 World Trade Center are still under construction.
