World Trade Center Site Overview

When the World Trade Center opened in the 1970s, the city and national economies were not doing well. Throwing all that square footage of office space onto the Lower Manhattan commercial real estate market seemed to make little sense, and for some years the center was occupied mainly by government offices. In the booms of the 1980s and 1990s that changed, and by the time of the terrible events of September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center was truly one of the trophy properties of New York.

So too is the World Financial Center, on the other side of West Street. Built in the 1980s as the office building component of the mixed-use Battery Park City development along the Hudson River waterfront, the distinctive towers of the World Financial Center are connected to one another by a vast and beautiful public atrium called the Winter Garden. Above the Winter Garden are hundreds of thousands of Square Feet of World Financial District office space.

The Winter Garden was destroyed on September 11, but was rebuilt and reopened in exactly one year, an event that filled New Yorkers with pride and confidence. The World Financial Center, with such tenants as Merrill Lynch, American Express, Dow Jones Oppenheim, and the New York Mercantile Exchange, is as thriving as ever.

Alan set us up in a much better space for less than we had been paying.

By far my most pleasant experience with a broker in searching for an office space. Alan listened to our requirements without judgement, and found us what we needed, where we needed it, and at the price point we wanted. Very responsive to emails and quick turnaround time on all matters. Would give more stars if I could!

It is been such a pleasure dealing with Alan from Metro Manhattan Office Space. He is upfront and honest and tries to find the right space to fit our needs. He was very successful in placing us in a building in New York City that was within our budget.

Thank you Alan and staff for your dedication to the success of my business

Love this guy! Called him on a Friday, from the train going home. He answered to phone himself and we spoke for over 30 minutes! That’s Great Customer Service! It took only two meetings with him to find a great new space. I was highly impressed with his knowledge, insight to my market.
Highly recommend him!
