Today, it spans verticals, from manufacturing to design, art to architecture, biotech to clean-tech, media to film production, and fashion to food. They collaborate with over 400 companies in six million square feet of classic industrial architecture, 21st century amenities, and the natural light to soak it all in. Encompassing over five acres of open space and cultivated common courtyards, the buildings hold beautiful views and provides fresh air for fresh perspectives. The Brooklyn Nets official 70,000 square foot training site and Time, Inc’s 55,000 square foot satellite campus was created as an incubator of ideas for the future of the company. Both are at Industry City.
Tour 3: Downtown Manhattan
Sponsor: WeWork Fulton Center
Developers: Westfield, Durst, Brookfield
10:00am – 1:30pm
The tour begins at WeWork’s latest New York City site at Fulton Center; learn about WeWork’s Enterprise Solutions and hear about “Space as a Service.” Experience the changing landscape of Downtown New York as a testament to our determination to make place matter both in substance and symbolism. One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the western hemisphere and main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center, serves as a shining beacon of the new Downtown and a bold addition to the New York City skyline. Nearby Brookfield Place, surrounded by iconic views of the Hudson River and Statue of Liberty, is the amenity-rich reinvention of the World Financial Center, attracting TAMI corporations as well as traditional FIRE companies. Santiago Calatrava's iconic World Trade Transportation Hub is considered a "must see" for all architectural buffs with a striking winged oculus and underground experience. This $4 billion Port Authority project is supported by a joint venture with Westfield Group and features a top of the line shopping experience in world-class architecture. Not to be forgotten is the 9/11 Memorial. Called Reflecting Absence, two fountains that are also our nation's largest manmade waterfalls, reside in the exact footprint of the former World Trade Center. The Memorial Fountains surrounded by public gardens and back dropped by new and reinvented architecture create a sensational and ethereal place in Lower Manhattan.
