News Clip: Alliance releases upbeat report on Lower Manhattan

The Downtown Express

A 34-page report called “The State of Lower Manhattan” recently released by the Alliance for Downtown New York paints a glowing picture of the area’s recovery since 9/11. The disaster had some beneficial repercussions. It brought money, new buildings, and eventually new businesses and residents to Lower Manhattan. When 1 World Trade Center and 4 World Trade Center are finished within the next three years, “they will become part of a business district that has more brand new, high-tech, green commercial office space than any other business district in the country,” the report states.
