A new skyline: Franck Lohsen McCrery Architects has revealed the first comprehensive masterplan for the devastated World Trade Center site. 'Liberty Square'will cover the 8ha site with 10 tall buildings surrounding a two-block memorial square, which will include sculptures to commemorate the victims of 11 September. The sculptures were designed by Scottish sculptor Alexander Stoddart. The 10 buildings will include a main tower at 1 Liberty Square, which will become the tallest in the city, flanked by nine shorter towers. The masterplan will also include a train station and the introduction of a 12-block grid to improve traffic flow through the southern Manhattan area. The scheme will lead to a 50 per cent increase in floor space for the area, compared with the original WTC buildings. The Manhattan Institute commissioned the plan.
