In addition to Apple stores in the new Mall will be presented, including such companies as Victoria’s Secret, H&M, Under Armour and Lacoste.
New world Trade Center complex in new York opened its doors 13 years after the fall of the two towers. In 2014, the official opening of the 104-story skyscraper world Trade Center 1 (One World Trade Center), also referred to as the freedom Tower.
The building, built on the site of the twin towers, destroyed in 2001, designed by architects Foster + Partners, who are currently engaged in the construction of a new “space office” by Apple.
Westfield invested $1.4 billion into the creation of a shopping centre, which began in November 2014. Initially it was assumed that the first stores will open in 2015. Shopping area — 365 sq ft, or 33 900 sq m, making the Mall the largest in Manhattan.
