6. A New Pedestrian Street Will be Completed with the Construction of 3 WTC
One of the lesser-discussed improvements that have come from the reconstruction of the World Trade Center complex is the reconnection of the street grid – which was obliterated by the superblock of the original WTC. With earlier construction, Greenwich Street was reconnected and Fulton Street extended. With the completion of 3 WTC, two new pedestrian passageways will be created. One will be on the southside between 3 WTC and 4 WTC, is called Cortlandt Way. And on the north side, visitors will be able to walk on what is known as South Plaza, between 3 WTC and the Calatrava transportation hub.
