WTC Redevelopment Recommendations

Department of City Planning's recommendations to the City Planning Commission:
The Department of City Planning made recommendations to the City Planning Commission on March 1, 2004 for the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site in response to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation’s Amended General Project Plan. These recommendations, guided in large part by the Mayor’s vision for Lower Manhattan, were put forward to better integrate the World Trade Center site with Lower Manhattan streets, ensure a pedestrian-friendly environment and help create a vibrant destination with a mix of accessible retail and generous open space as well as a respectful environment for the memorial.

City Planning Commission's response to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation:
Following the presentation by Department of City Planning staff on March 1, the City Planning Commission (CPC) responded to the World Trade Center plan pursuant to provisions of the New York State Urban Development Corporation Act that require LMDC to refer to the CPC any General Project Plan (GPP) to be implemented through the override of local regulation. Under the statute, the Commission may recommend approval, disapproval or modifications to the GPP. In the event the Commission recommends disapproval or modification of the GPP, the LMDC Board of Directors may “override” the CPC recommendations only by a two-thirds vote.
